I’m a law-abiding citizen who owns firearms for my enjoyment. Last year, I purchased a Smith & Wesson MP15T (read AR-15 “assault rifle”). This weapon is a pleasure of mine. I enjoy taking it to my brother’s ranch and popping off a few rounds when I can. This new administration is however making it difficult for me to enjoy this pleasure of mine. Will this become a SIN tax too like beer, alcohol, cigarettes, etc? No… the government is going to attack the Arms Manufacturers in a round-about way. They don’t want to be know as “the administration that took everyone’s second ammendments rights away”. They are just going to make it astronomically expensive to enjoy your legal purchased firearms, by raising the price of ammo by 500% and putting the arms manufacturers out of business, therebye leading to layoffs of hundreds or thousands of workers.
Read the article below…
Georgia Arms is the 5th largest retailer of .223 Ammo in America . They
sell 9mm, .45, ..223 ammunition. They normally buy spent brass from the
US Department of Defense. Spent brass is “one time used” shell cases
used by our Military for training purposes.
They buy the brass, recondition it, and then reload the brass for resale
to Law Enforcement, Gun Clubs, Gun Shops, and stores like Wal-Mart. 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
informed him that from now on the DoD will be destroying the spent
brass, shredding it. It will no longer be available to the ammo makers,
unless they 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 the ammo makers have been
paying, plus the DoD has to pay to have the brass shredded and do the
This sure helps the economy now doesn’t it? Sell cheaper to China , and
do not sell at all to=2 0a proven US business. Any hidden agenda working
here? Obama going after the Firearms Industry and our ammunition!! The
Georgia Arms owner even related a story that one of his competitors had
already purchased a load of brass last week. The DoD contacted him this
week and said they were sending someone over to make sure it was
destroyed. Shell cases he had already bought!
The brass has no value to the ammo maker if it is
destroyed/shredded/melted. The ammo manufacturer only uses the empty
brass cases to reload different calibers, mainly .223 bullets.
The owner of Georgia Arms says that he will have to lay off at least
half of his 60 workers, within 2-3 months if the DoD will no longer sell
spent brass cases to the industry. Georgia Arms has 2-3 months of
inventory to use, by summer they’re out.
If the Reloading Industry has to purchase new manufacture brass cases,
then the cost of ammunition will double or even triple, plus Obama want
to add a 500% tax on each shell..
