Trump is making it easier for American gun companies to see firearms overseas. Ana Kasparian, Hasan Piker, and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you how. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration is preparing to make it easier for American gun makers to sell small arms, including assault rifles and ammunition, to foreign buyers, according to senior U.S. officials.

Aides to President Donald Trump are completing a plan to shift oversight of international non-military firearms sales from the State Department to the Commerce Department, four officials told Reuters.

While the State Department is primarily concerned about international threats to stability and maintains tight restrictions on weapons deals, the Commerce Department typically focuses more on facilitating trade.

The officials from multiple agencies, speaking on condition of anonymity, say the new rules will cut government red tape and regulatory costs, boosting U.S. exports of small arms and creating jobs at home.

“There will be more leeway to do arms sales,” one senior administration official said. “You could really turn the spigot on if you do it the right way.”

The push fits both Trump’s support for the gun lobby espoused on the campaign trail and his “Buy American” agenda.”

    The US has been selling weapons to dubious governments/groups/people for a long time.. only difference with this story is that now they will be selling in a non-military context.. bit of a non-story if you ask me. Unfortunately a downside to this move is that the NRA and other lobby groups like that will have even more incentive to try to manipulate policy in other countries around the world..

    Ana, you're critical of us selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and to some extent I understand why but their defense budget is about $47.8 billion a year. We get a big chunk of that and that chunk goes in part to pay salaries of Americans who work in factories here, earning a hell of a lot more than $15.00 per hour, producing those weapons. With Iran on their door step, they are going to buy those weapons somewhere. Would you feel better if Saudi Arabia paid that money to China or Russia and we sold them nothing?

    You guys hate guns so much that you are blinded to the very facts that Ana read. This applies only to non-military weapons only. The same kind of guns you, me and everyone else can buy here any time we want to.

    The US government sold/is selling weapons to a country that possible aided in bombing the twin towers, why would they have a hard time expanding that rule? lel…
