Last month, the State Department announced that the federal government will soon begin prohibiting Americans from importing “ammunition manufactured or located in Russia.” This restriction comes as part of a new set of sanctions pushed by the Biden administration against the Russian Federation for its habit of poisoning political opposition. The Biden administration claims that it is pursuing these sanctions to punish Russia for its mistreatment of political dissidents.
Don’t be fooled. This policy is just a convenient cover for the White House’s anti-gun agenda. By making it illegal for American citizens to purchase some of the most sought-after brands of ammunition, the administration has guaranteed that ammo prices will continue to rise, making second Amendment rights that much more difficult to exercise.
