A new rule announced on Thursday by the Donald Trump administration will make it far easier to export the AR-15 and weapons like it abroad, spreading rampant gun violence beyond U.S. borders.
The new rule will also move the AR-15 and similar weapons from a list that requires careful scrutiny, the U.S. Munitions List, to a list that contains far fewer safeguards, the Commerce Control List. The reason for doing this? To boost gun exports. The Trump administration is unapologetically saying that death is highly profitable and that profits for gun manufacturers are more important than people.
