    I am all for employing Americans, but what about Norma and Lapua? Any second or third order effects here? France lost it’s small arms production capability and is buying HK. Doubt we will lose our self sustaining arms production, is Scandinavia losing out to globalism, refugees and political progressivism. If so, not good for their own national self determination.
