Military installations sidestep questions on brass destruction

Shortages resulting from an unprecedented demand for ammunition by federal agencies and the civilian market are causing some police departments to look at cutting back training, KCENTV reported Thursday.

“Depending on what happens with the supply shortage, we may have to start cutting back somewhere,” said Sgt. Patrick Swanton of the Waco Police department told reporter Amanda Kenney.

One source the civilian market particularly looks at is for cartridge casings, and in a time of high demand, having them available for reloading ammunition becomes a significant interest. One of the prime suppliers for expended brass is the military, so their compliance with appropriations requirements and public law becomes a matter of heightened public interest.

    The brass reduction they should be looking at, is at the Pentagon…there are thousands working at the Pentagon the have been promoted to their level of incompetence, just like most of the other government officials in or around DC.

    We need to stop the exportation of “brass” and recycle it here in the United States to make more ammo
    for our military and American Citizens.

    the military is cutting it’s own throat. and if the casings are going to enemies of liberty then those in charge of this move are guilty of treason.
