Democrats are calling for an investigation into the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant to shut it down. Anti-gunners are targeting the Missouri plant as they try to disarm Americans.
The Democrats’ request, which is ostensibly meant to reduce gun violence, is a step towards reducing the availability of military-grade rounds on the commercial market. However, a closer look at the scheme reveals it to be yet another attempt by Democrats to restrict responsible Americans from owning firearms.
The 28 Republican Attorneys-General responded with a letter sent to the Biden administration to counteract the claims made by Democrats during their initial overture to the White House.
The Democrat Attorneys-General have sent you a request for an investigation of Lake City. They claim that commercial ammunition manufactured by the facility was used in mass murders.
According to the letter, if you follow the request of the Democratic Attorneys Generals, the prices and availability of ammunition will increase.
Democrats are trying to limit ammunition availability, which will affect the right to bear arms of all Americans. It will increase the vulnerability of people to violent criminals.
Closing the plant would have a huge economic impact on the city. According to this letter, between 500 and 700 jobs would be lost. This letter estimates that many residents will lose their jobs should the plant close.
The Republican AGs point out that the Defense Department has a contract with the facility for support of military readiness. Closing the facility could therefore hinder the effectiveness and efficiency of the United States Military.
It is nonsense to claim that taxpayers are subsidizing mass shooters. This causality is reversed. Gun owners who follow the law and purchase Lake City ammunition, subsidize the national defense. Lake City doesn’t produce all commercially available ammo.
Gun control advocates want to end civilian ammunition supply. The goal of gun control advocates is to stop civilian ammunition supplies.
The Democrats have shown they are willing to collude with foreign governments to sue American firearm manufacturers.
On Monday, a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals First Circuit ruled that Mexico can proceed with a lawsuit naming U.S. firearm manufacturers and blaming them for supplying weapons used in cartel violence. Mexico claims that gun manufacturers knew their products were ending up in the cartel’s hands, but did nothing to stop it.
Mexico filed its lawsuit on 20 August 2021. The lawsuit claimed that defendants like Smith & Wesson and Colt had “designed, marketed, and distributed guns in a manner” to arm Mexican cartels. This has contributed to the increase in gun violence, despite strict regulation.
According to a decision released by the US Court of Appeals First Circuit on Monday, the complaint had been dismissed in September of 2022 by a US District Court which ruled that Mexico’s claims “were barred by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act”. ”
A letter to one of the most anti-gun presidents in history won’t stop the campaign. However, it could be the start of legal battles if the White House decides to take action against Lake City.
This case may be important. If Democrats get their way, they will continue to target ammunition plants and other gun dealers. The Democrats are seeking other ways to prevent people from owning and using firearms.
