It's trafficking when we say it's trafficking, citizen.

Apparentlyl the gov’t is treating it as a technology transfer. And there is a law on the books that they are pointing to.

Here's a disclaimer that is used by some Defense Contractor's in regard to ITAR:

EXPORT CONTROL WARNING “This document may contain technical data that is subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) controls and may not be exported or otherwise disclosed to any foreign person or firm, whether in the US or abroad, without first complying with all requirements of the ITAR, 22 CFR 120-130, including the requirement for obtaining an export license if applicable. In addition, this document may contain technology that is subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and may not be exported or otherwise disclosed to any non-U.S. person, whether in the US or abroad, without first complying with all requirements of the EAR, 15 CFR 730-774, including the requirement for obtaining an export license if applicable. Violation of these export laws is subject to severe criminal penalties.”

The law, and the attendant regulations, is so poorly written that basically anyone who pisses off the State Department can suffer a severe change in their lifestyle for alleged ITAR violations. Passing off a technical specifications document freely available via Google from anywhere in the world is enough for them to send you into Federal Court where the conviction rate is North of 95%.

The same way the Left got it’s knickers in a twist about the “Anarchist Cookbook”, back in the late 60’s, IIRC....

crickets....

As a poster on another thread mentioned:

“We were in Des Moines last weekend at the State Historical society. They had on display a primitive cannon where the barrel is made of wood and then it was wrapped the entire length in wire to give it’s strength.”

Looks like ATF, State Dept, IRS, etc need to raid the State Historical Society in Des Moines!
