    Default Trade sanctions to China will not impact American gun owners

    Trump trade sanctions are being selective so as not to hurt the average consumer more than is necessary
    TRADE WARS https://qz.com/1307027/trade-war-sur...-tariffs-list/

    The mystifying list of things that Trump is happy to let China export to the US tariff-free


    Meanwhile, the changes to the list seem designed to ensure that Americans still have easy access to weapons. Telescopic sights for machines and appliances will now face a 25% tariff—those used for rifles and “other arms” are no longer included. In fact, the whole sweeping range of weaponry included in the April list has now been cut. Americans will still be able to enjoy duty-free prices on Chinese rocket launchers, flame-throwers, shotguns, ammunition, pistols, grenade launchers and imports classified as “bombs, grenades, torpedoes, mines, missiles and similar munitions of war.” And, yes, the US does import a few million dollars worth of those goods each year.
    Trump’s original tariff list, announced back in April, included 1,333 items. After fielding comments from the public and trade experts, the administration has winnowed the targets down a bit. Now only 818 products (worth about $34 billion) will initially face the 25% tariff, which goes into effect July 6.

    China doesn't make anything of interest or concern for me in the weapons arena.
