It seems that the Biden administration is determined to undermine the rights of American citizens, by continuing to hinder access to firearms and accessories and is now requiring handgun holster manufacturers to hand over sales records – in detail.
Ammoland reported letters have been sent out to manufacturers of handgun holsters from Census Bureau, seeking the records of sales and not specifying why they wanted such information.
Several major holster manufacturers/providers received notices from the Department of Commerce Census Bureau requesting order numbers, product descriptions, and where the items were being shipped. A few holster companies have refused to turn over the requested information to the federal government.
Chad Myers, the president of JM4 Tactical, noted “We will never turn over any information on our customers to the government no matter the cost us,” adding, “To do so would violate our core beliefs. We need to stand up to an overbearing government. Our customers can rest assured that their information is safe with us!”
Ammoland reported that a number of companies have contacted Arbiter Weston Martinez in Texas for assistance.
“Clearly, the Biden administration is saber rattling for the left in the wake of all the recent losses they have incurred by Supreme Court rulings,” Martinez said. “My clients and I will never back down from anyone that is trying to impugn our Constitutional and God-give rights like the Second Amendment.”
The Census Bureau has claimed that it is bound by federal law to hand over any information that is requested.
Companies could face fines of up to $5,000 if they refuse to cooperate with the bureau, but according to Ammoland, the statute only has a fine of $500, which had led some to believe that there has been a n intentional typo made on the website, to scare companies into compliance under Title 13, United States Code, Section 224, and the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 (Title 18, Sections 3551, 3559, and 3571).
“After looking into the law, the statutory limit on fines is $500. It is unclear if the web designer made a typo on the site or if it was a scare tactic to compel companies to turn over information,” Ammoland reported, adding: “Only one company was ever criminally charged with not filling out the survey, and that was in 1994. That doesn’t mean these companies are not in danger. The Biden administration has been hostile to the firearms industry, and these companies that make it easier to carry a concealed gun might be the next group to be targeted.”
Request for comment was ignored, according to Ammoland news staff and it is still not clear why the information is wanted by the Biden administration, but it seems this is all part of the plan to disarm Americans.
