ITAR Lawsuit

From Rob Lyman, Leo Combat LLC

I am sure you and your readers are concerned about the new ITAR guidance and its effect on small gunsmiths.  Last October, I sued the State Department over that very issue, seeking to have ITAR overturned, or at least have its application limited to actual exporters.  Unfortunately a couple of days ago my lawsuit was tossed on a technicality—the judge found that my company doesn’t have standing to sue, despite being a type 07 FFL with gun designs ready, there isn’t a “real” case because the government isn’t actually prosecuting me.

 

My intention is to register and pay the fee, and then sue for a refund.  Unfortunately my basement startup can’t afford that (which is why I sued—small business and startups are cash-strapped), but I did throw up a GoFundMe page hoping that gun owners and gunsmiths might chip in to help me do it.  I don’t know if your readers would be interested or not, but I thought I’d let you know.
