There is a proposed rule change to the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) regulation that would ban technical decisions on the Internet about guns and ammunition unless the website gets the okay from the federal government. An okay that costs a couple grand a year and probably would require some heavy modification to a website.
Which means me talking about changing parts on my M&P and the differences in ammunition performance on this blog gets categorized as an “export”. An export that without the State Department’s authorization could land me in jail for 20 years and a cool million in fines.
