This is totally crazy and it should make you want to slap the hell
out of the idiots we have in Washington DC.

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 accounting paperwork.

This sure helps the economy now doesn't it? Sell cheaper to China ,
and do not sell at all to a proven US business. Any hidden agenda
working here? Obama going after the Firearms Industry and our
