Okay, I have my tin foil hat on, so I may proceed with caution.
This is just all too damn clever. Think of it. Why in the hell would they issue this new directive? And better yet, where the hell did it come from?
Right now the demand for ammo is at all time high. Site whatever reason you want, but the truth is on the shelves. So, why would the military, that makes money on the sale of such surplus items now decided that they are going to destroy all once fired brass and risk losing that profit?
So let me get this straight. The military shoots a crap load of ammo, the brass is saved, then sold to people that re-manufacture it. Seems like a plus for the military.
Now, they are told to destroy it all. So now, not only do they not make money selling the surplus, now they have to spend money to destroy it.
Wonder what caused that.
Now what you are going to see with ammo, is what happened with fuel. The demand is already up, prices went up. I know raw material price is a factor also, but for now, we shall leave that out. And now that re manufactured ammo who's brass comes from the military will no longer be available. Therefore limiting the supply and increasing the demand. Guess what happens to prices now? You thought ammo was hard to find before and expensive. See what happens now.
Damn it, why the hell is this happening? All this little stuff about banning guns, registering ammo, no more mil surplus brass is starting to add up. A little bit at a time is all it takes. I hope we can all see the big picture here.
