Helping The Economy?

16 Mar

I thought that Barry was attempting to fix the economy?

Effective immediately DOD Surplus, LLC, will be implementing new requirements for mutilation of fired shell casings. The new DRMS requirement calls for DOD Surplus personnel to witness the mutilation of the property and sign the Certificate of Destruction. Mutilation of the property can be done at the DRMO, if permitted by the Government, or it may be mutilated at a site chosen by the buyer. Mutilation means that the property will be destroyed to the extent prevents its reuse or reconstruction. DOD Surplus personnel will determine when property has been sufficiently mutilated to meet the requirements of the Government.

What does this have to do with the economy, you ask?  Michael Bane explains it.

Georgia Arms was remanufacturing more than one million rounds of .223 ammunition monthly; selling that ammo on the civilian market to resellers and to government agencies all over the country.

Tomorrow, Georgia Arms will start sending cancellation notices for .223 ammunition to law enforcement agencies across the United States. Haynie says he may have to layoff half of his sixty-person workforce.

That is the perfect way to help the economy – remove a product form the market and cause people to lose their jobs.  More here for those who still don’t understand.

    Unfortunately, this is probably only the beginning. We all know that in Illinois, Barry wanted to institute a 500% tax on ammunition (as well as firearms). Talk about crippling an industry. I think it’s time to purchase a reloading press…

    I understand presses are getting expensive and in short supply. I’ve been using an old Rock Chucker for quite a few years now.
