Ammunition Exports Exploding
The lamestream media told you:
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Overall U.S. exports of arms and ammunition in six sporting categories increased 48.5% in January 2012 compared to January 2011. January 2012 exported units in tracked categories totaled 119.0 million units, up from 80.2 million units reported in January 2011.
Overall U.S. imports of arms and ammunition in the same six tracked sporting categories however decreased 21.1 percent in January 2012 compared to January 2011. This means our balance of trade for arms and ammunition is in positive territory, a strong plus for the economy.
January 2012 imported units in the six tracked categories totaled 114.9 million, down from 145.7 million reported in January 2011. All figures are from U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC). See a breakdown for each category here: http://www.nssf.org/bulletpoints/links/imports_jan12.cfm
The six tracked categories are handguns, rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, shotgun cartridges and other cartridges. Handgun exports increased 65.6% from 10,557 to 17,487 units.
