Amendment On Resale Of Fired Cartridge Cases

Today, cure by a unanimous voice vote, sick an NRA-backed amendment was added to the House Armed Services Committee’s National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 5136) that will ensure serviceable and once-fired small arms cartridge cases are available for commercial sale.

The Ellsworth amendment, illness offered by U.S. Rep. Brad Ellsworth (D-Ind.), compels military bases to sell small arms ammunition and ammunition components intact – meaning not demilitarized for scrap – as long as these items aren’t “unserviceable or unsafe.”

“This brings us one step closer to a significant victory for law-abiding sportsmen, especially during these trying economic times. Reloaded ammunition costs considerably less, and military-sourced spent brass cases are of the calibers most widely used for marksmanship training and competition by civilians,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA Institute for Legislative Action. “Also, with widespread ammunition shortages, the passage of this amendment will be well received by NRA members, gun owners and ammunition suppliers.” -[source]
