    Firearms are finally being pulled out from under ITAR an over to the Commerce Dept. FFLs with a Mfg. license no longer have to pay a $2250 annual registration fee. This also eases the sharing of technical data for R&D, including sharing 3-D printed gun plans online. The DOC has the Export Admin. Regs for export of all firearms, parts, ammo and info. We are no longer lumped in with tanks, rocket launchers, steno pads, pencils, and toilet paper. Big thanks to Larry Keane, Sr.VP and Gen. Counsel at the NSSF to move this ball along. Firearms were stalled in the State Dept. after Sandy Hook, and politics demanded a higher level of restrictions for them. Another action to credit the Trump admin., for getting this moved to a less regulated realm of influence. Now American Mfrs are no longer forced into having factories in other countries to get around the export delays. It also lowers cost and speeds up production. Federal Regs on Firearms will still be with us, but you don't have to register with the DDTC, or live in fear of sharing plans online in or outside of the country. However, fully auto military firearms are the exception to the Commerce Dept. move. That shouldn't bother most of us.

    No. Until a final rule is published, it’s just a notice.

    International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the US regulatory regime to restrict and control the export of defense and military related technologies to safeguard US national security and further US foreign policy objectives, is not "gone for good." It is being amended to better align it with the Export Control Regulations.

    Big difference.
