Is UPS' New Rule Change An Attack On Gun Industry?

•, by Tyler Durden

AmmoLand News obtained a letter that UPS sent customers in the firearms industry specifying how as of Aug. 29, shipments of at least 50 handguns per day had to be sustained to use its 2nd Day Air service. Sellers who did not meet new service volume requirements risk losing their shipping accounts. 

"Under the new agreement, UPS is only required to give customers a ten-day notice before cutting them off from the shipping service," AmmoLand's John Crump said.

Crump explained: "The volume necessary means that most online retailers and manufacturers are now cut off from shipping guns through the carrier unless the handgun is shipped using the expensive Next Day Air service." 

UPS told customers it "updated its policy to adhere to nationwide regulations issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and a number of states."
