Politico reports an executive order was signed this morning:
It authorizes Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to work with Secretary of State John Kerry to impose sanctions on “any individual or entity that operates in the Russian arms industry, and any designated individual or entity that acts on behalf of, or that provides material or other support to, any senior Russian government official,” the White House said in a statement.Will this order be used to ban the import of Russian made ammo into the United States? Such action would seem to clearly fall within the scope of the order as it's reported.
There are other sources of cheap steel case ammunition. But Russia has been a biggie provider to the U.S. civilian market.
Update: Remember this Sipsey Street post earlier this month?
