Government says no more used military brass

PostBy: av8r On: Sun Apr 05, 2009 11:16 am

Yep...those government guys don't have any agenda in mind when it comes to firearms....

Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . (they sell 9 mm, .45, etc)
They normally buy spent brass from the US Dept of Defense one time used shell casings by our Military from training on Military bases, etc. They buy the brass and then re-load for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Shops, Gun Clubs, etc.
They normally buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at a time.
This week the DoD wrote a letter to the owner of Georgia Arms and said that from now=2 0on the DoD will be destroying the brass shredding it. It is no longer available to the Ammo makers unless they just buy it in a scrap condition (which they have No use for). BTW - The brass is NOW going to be sold by the DoD to China as scrap - for less money than Ammo manufacturers have been paying for the shells before processing to destroy. That sure helps the US economy now, doesnt it? Sell cheaper to China and do not sell shells at all to a proven US business. Any agenda working here????
The Georgia Arms owner even related a story that one of his competitors had already purchased a load of brass last week and the DoD contacted him this week and said they were sending someone over to make sure it was destroyed. Shell Casings he had already bought! THE BRASS HAS NO VALUE TO THE AMMO MAKER IF IT IS DESTROYED/SHREDDED/MELTED. HE ONLY USES IT TO RELOAD DIFFERENT CALIBERS - MAINLY .223 BULLETS.
Georgia Arms owner says that he will have to lay off at least Half of his 60 workers, within 2 3 months if the DoD no longer sells their spent brass to him. He has 2 3 months inventory of shells to use. By summer - hes out.

I thought this was taken care of already. DoD issued the letter and a few weeks later after a few mid west Congressmen spoke up, they issued another letter rescinding the first. Is this a SECOND attempt?

Watch out av8r, you'll be labeled neoconservative/fear monger and you'll be told, no one is trying to take your guns away (yet), just your ammo. Nothing to worry about because you don't need it anyway. :roll:

This appears to have been reversed, but it shows the amount of effort they are willing to expend to control guns in any way possible.
