    Obama 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
    paying...plus 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 BRASS HAS NO VALUE TO THE AMMO MAKER IF IT IS
    DESTROYED/SHREDDED/MELTED.THE AMMO MANUFACTURER
    ONLY USES THE EMPTY BRASS SHELLS TO RELOAD DIFFERENT CALIBERS -
    MAINLY.223 BULLETS !!

    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 triple...plus Obama wants to add a 500%
    tax on each shell.....
