Mil Brass recycled not sold, again
Seems the gov is still destroying and scraping brass that is supposed to be sold for reloading.

Quote:A report received yesterday by Gun Rights Examiner indicates at least one military installation is still destroying expended ammunition brass, despite a furor raised in the gun community a few years back that resulted in two senators intervening to stop the practice and allow for its resale for reloading. The Dec. 2012 Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan for Fort Drum, N.Y., marked “Revision 1,” describes its policy for brass and expended munitions as part of its installation recycling program, which includes rendering expended ammunition brass unsuitable for anything but scrap.

“Brass from expended ammunition/munitions is recycled,” the report advises. “Expended munitions must be free of any explosive hazard or residue and be crushed, shredded or otherwise destroyed prior to public sale.

“At Fort Drum, brass from expended ammunition is processed through a brass deformer machine located at the transfer station,” the description continues. “The deformed brass is purchased by a scrap metal vendor who reports the weighed amount to the QRP [Qualified Recycling Program] Manager. The proceeds from the sale of the scrap metal are deposited into the designated QRP account.”

Fort LeJuene may be doing the same.

David Codrea over at The War on Guns Blog and author of the above article asks if anyone has any connections any where that knows if indeed brass is being scrapped to contact him.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

Never will so long as there is a gun grabbing Marxist in office.

I bet large quantities of that brass is shipped to China.
