We are writing to express our concerns about the U.S. Department of Commerce’s proposed rule, published in the Federal Register on May 24, 2018, to transfer certain firearms, guns, ammunition, and related parts from the U.S. Department of State’s U.S. Munitions List (USML) to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Commerce Control List (CCL) under a new 500 series designation.

The number of US foreign military trainees increased substantially in FY 2015, growing from 56,346 in FY 2014 to 79,865 in FY 2015, according to a new Security Assistance Monitor (SAM) report released today on trends in US foreign military training. The report, which is based on an analysis of the US “Foreign Military Training” report released earlier this year, marks the highest number of US military trainees in any year since FY 2006.
