How the Russian Gun and Ammo Ban Might Affect You

What’s behind President Joe Biden’s true intentions with the new Russian gun ban?

In case you haven’t heard yet, but on August 20, 2021, the Biden Administration announced that firearms and ammunition which are imported from Russia are no longer allowed to be sold in the United States. This ban starts officially on September 1 and runs for one year before it will reassessed. This ban is a sanction under the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act signed into law in 1991.

The U.S. State Department is imposing this ban on Russian products in response to their alleged poisoning of Aleksey Navainy, who was an opposition leader to Putin’s regime. He survived the attack with Novichok, a Soviet-era nerve agent, which can be deadly. Navainy was rushed to the hospital after drinking a cup of tea laced with the nerve agent, fell ill on a plane, and had to be put in a medically induced coma in August 2020.

Our government is saying that “new and pending permit applications will be subject to a policy of denial.” This is the second type of sanction that the U.S. State Department has come up with over the Navainy incident, but the first round didn’t call for a total ban. Those shipments that had been approved before August will still be allowed to be sold in the country. You can imagine those supplies will sell pretty fast in light of the upcoming ban.

How Does the Ban Affect You?

Any reduction in the amount of ammo imported right now is going to affect the cost and supply of current ammo stock, which has already been short for many months due to increased demand. People are getting frustrated and have been for some time with shortages in their local stores and online. It’s truly an aggravation to go into a store looking for just the right ammo only to be told time and time again that they are out of stock. The new ban against Russia just harms law-abiding American citizens from getting their hands on these ammo supplies in greater numbers.

A Russian Gun and Ammo Maker With a Long History

Here’s an example of a Russian gun and ammo company with a long history of success — The Ulyanovsk Cartridge Works. They make sporting, hunting, and military cartridges for handguns, rifles, and machine guns. Their story goes back to 1916 when they were created in Ulyanovsk. The company has since become known for its superior products.

TulAmmo is another Russian-made ammo company that imports to the United States. Stores that currently carry Russian guns and ammo will be able to sell through their supplies, but they won’t be able to import any new stock.

So with this new wrench in the supply stock of ammo, it looks like the shortage won’t be ending any time soon.

  1. Anyone else sick of our CIIC (Coprolitic-Imbecile-In-Chief)? We’ve seen this brand of afflicted arrogance a few times in history but punishment of half the nation with such “brass” has reached a new high. I sense a rumbling all across the nation and seems the remedy is a new president with more compassion for U.S. citizens. How long will the public hold out before they forcibly kick this fumble butt out on his backside?

  2. This administration is a threat to national security, something must be done soon.
    After serving my country for 36 years first in the USMC then the Army, I know a serious threat when I see one. They first get rid of any military leaders who oppose their view then it’s almost imposible to fight without congress telling us when to engage.
