It is illegal to export firearms, weapons parts and ammunition without a federal license and permit from the U.S. Department of Commerce or the U.S. Department of State.
“Ultimately, Customs and Border Protection does not want illegally exported ammunition ending up in the hands of criminals or criminal organizations who could use that ammo to hurt innocent victims,” said Keith Fleming, Acting Director of Field Operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office.
