I see a real opportunity for the Cartkes to make hug profits.
What's to stop them from building munitions plants and flooding the US with cheap unmarked, untaxed ammo?
They have more than enough cash to build a high tech uber modern plant right on the border.

Now that would create a drive by the Pedophile party to secure the border!
Not female trafficking- but ammo baby- they’d go nuts!
First of all, they don’t got no badges.
If they have to smuggle it in, it won’t be cheap.
Perhaps something we can pass it on to them. If our government can do it, why shouldn’t we?
They are now making all law abiding citizens criminals, so what the hey!
Prohibition comes to mind. I can see a black market on all things 2nd Amendment related.
We ALL know how well prohibition worked out.
Exactly. ‘Cause they don’t need no steenking badges!
If they have to smuggle it in, it wont be cheap.
Have you seen any cheap ammo lately?
It’s not cheap now, that is, if you can find it.
Ammo and guns already being smuggled-hands-off from Canada- to-USA via Ottawa, the Mohawk Sovereign Nation [extends both sides of the border] into New York State unscathed.
So at the same price or even higher , but readily available.
But they lack the funds to create ammo factory and smuggle large scale.
The Cartles are set up and flush with cash.
Ammo isn’t worth that much by weight, even at the inflated prices it currently goes for, compared to drugs. I don’t see this happening.
I’ve been saying that for a month...”The gun runners are chomping at the bit”
How many more lessons do our political geniuses need? Prohibition, the war on drugs, cigarette bans all resulted in criminal black markets and hugely inflated prices. Those who want the product will do anything necessary to get the money to buy what they want.
The enormous downside for guns and ammo supplies is that citizens pursuing a Constitutional right would be turned into a felons!
Because purchasing it in the US, or bringing it across the border, would be illegal.
If its cheap, they have no reason to smuggle it across.
When 9mm rounds are $1 each due to government action, then they will start smuggling them in.
Eh? Drugs are cheap.
