Default Why cant Russia and the U.S. sell guns to each other?

Why was that trade agreement passed? I dont really see a point in it, but then again I dont know much about it.

Somehow, the idiocy of it all astounds me. B.O. should

be kissing the asses of the folks he's trying to eliminate,

because firearms, ammo, and accessory sales, and the

jobs and security they create are one of the very few

bright spots of his dismal economy.

As to WHY? Possibly because the leader of the most powerful country in

the world doesn't want open arms sales to his citizens by the

largest country in the world? Anybody?

I'm not going to lie I really didn't understand what it was saying but I'm guessin it was saying that russian ammo can't be imported into the US anymore?

Or any Russian guns, well some of them(Saiga's can be imported but I think thats because they alter the guns and make them into ''sporting rifles''.
Im going to sound like a game nerd but after seeing the mp412 rex in battlefield I thought it was cool looking so I looked it up on google and came to this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MP412_REX
After reading it I found out that this trade agreement wrecked the production of this revolver, if you go to google images you'll see it looks awesome! lol but anyway, I am waiting for C3 to comment, seems like he would know alot more about the trade agreement then me.

It looked like 7.62x25 ammo was the only one prohibited. That sucks though.

They don't trade in small arms because they agreed not to. The driving force was the American gun makers who suffered from inexpensive Russian and Chinese imports.

Obama did not make this trade agreement with Russia: Neither did Bush. This trade agreement has been in effect since about 1996.

Prior to that trade agreement the Bush I white house banned the importation of over 40 semi-auto rifles including the Soviet AK-47, SVT 38 and SVT 40.

Whatever that trade agreement was or was supposed to be, there are an awful lot of Russian guns and ammunition in this country with more coming in every day.
