Default DOD's Anti Gun Agenda Put Into Effect

Thanks Obama, you fucking traitor.

Here is the "stealth" implementation. Which is implemented at a significant cost to the Dept of Defense.

Ammo Grab

Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . (they sell 9 mm, .45, etc ammo) G.A. normally buy spent brass from the US Dept of Defense - 'one time used' shell casings by our Military - from target training on Military bases, etc. They buy the brass and then re-load for resale to Law Enforcement, Gun Shops, Gun Clubs, Wal-Mart, and etc. They usually buy 30,000 lbs of spent brass at a time.

This week the DOD notified the owner of Georgia Arms and said that from now on 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 shredded condition (which they have No use for). The shredded brass is NOW going to be sold by the DOD to China as scrap metal....after the DOD pays for it to be shredded. The DOD is selling the brass to China for less money than Ammo manufacturers have been the DOD has to pay to have the brass shredded and do all the accounting paperwork. That sure helps the US economy now, doesn't it? Sell cheaper to China - and do not sell shells at all to a proven US business. Do you see an agenda working here???? President Obama is going after our ammunition !!!!!

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.


The Georgia Arms owner says that he will have to lay off at least Half of his 60 workers, within 2 or 3 months if the DOD no longer sells their spent brass to him.. He has 2 to 3 months inventory of shells to use. By summer - he'll be completely out. If he has to buy new manufactured brass shells, then the cost of ammunition to the buyer will certainly double and then Obama wants to add a 500% tax on each shell.....

You can read the info and see the DOD letter to Georgia Arms at the website below.....Click on it.....

Default Well, man...

The price of brass on the world market is a little high, today. DoD's move may not be necessarily due to an anti-gun agenda...

I would bet it peripherally is. The market value of the brass is more than accounted for in the price reloaders were paying for the shells and then some. Unless China just happens to desperately need a supply of brass and this was a diplomatic move, I don't see it as a useful policy. I would bet though some of the Washington guys are thinking/were told it was "hi power military components" that were making it into civilian ammo, as opposed to the reality that it was low price moderate to low quality versions of things civilians can get anyway. There are still people out there who assume that a military round is somehow inherently superior to any and all civilian rounds, and some of them are in higher government jobs.

Ultimately though I am surprised the military doesn't reload its own brass for training. I would imagine it could save training costs. The biggest issue would be tracking the number of reload cycles for each batch. I wonder if a code could be printed on each cartridge, so that when it gets reloaded a database is updated to track uses and a sorter could pull end of life cycle rounds as they went back to loading. In the past it would have been problematic, but computer processing, memory, and I/O bandwidth should be up to it now.
