govt agencies might just say okay and start buying guns from overseas. The federal govt could tacitly tell China or other nations that we, (the USA) will not support anyone who challenges China for patent infringement or such.
What if the governor or a important legislator from New York or wherever gets frustrated not being able to buy the weapons its state needs and then gets elected to federal office? Might they have a grudge against some big manufacturer that would not sell weapons to his state? And consequently push sales to foreign manufacturers?
This tactic could backfire terribly. Or it might work.
