(TacticalNews.com) – The year 2020 has been full of surprises: a virus, riot, protests, and the list goes on. 2020 has also seen big wins for gun advocates and 2nd Amendment activists. The latest launches the US back onto the international stage and market.
No such thing as a "silencer." There are suppressors & moderators. They are only beneficial on smaller subsonic rounds & r legal to own in 42 states. The ban on export was ludicrous because the USA was 1 if 74 countries that export them. https://t.co/WYMrN2sBKP

Friday, President Trump’s administration brought an end to a ban that was put in place in 2002. The ban on the sale of gun silencers, or suppressors, to foreign powers, has been lifted. This is a big win for gun manufacturers as they can now compete in the international market. There were some lobbying efforts by one of Trump’s deputy assistants, Michael Williams. Williams also serves as a White House lawyer and formerly ran a trade group that represented suppressor manufacturers.
If concern for the troops was a thing, Beghazi wouldn't have been. Glad to see the US economy involved in more exports, now including being able to sell silencers that the rest of the world has been for almost 20 years.https://t.co/BSeEEN1rro

A spokeswoman told the New York Times that the ban being lifted was to help US manufacturers, adding that US companies should have the same opportunity to compete in the international market. The administration’s decision comes after a push by Democrats last year to ban the sale of these products completely. A push that came after a gunman allegedly used a handgun with extended magazines and a suppressor to kill 12 people in Virginia Beach.
