Sen. Inhofe: Spent brass measure benefits gun owners

Monday, June 20, 2011

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R Okla.), a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC), successfully added an amendment to the committee passed National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2012, making fired small arms cartridges available for commercial sale with certain restrictions. It also requires the U.S. Secretary of Defense to ensure compliance with managing commercial sale of spent ammunition. "My amendment provides a unique opportunity for the commercial sale of spent small arms cartridges," said Inhofe. "This is beneficial from a cost saving standpoint. Having worked on this issue for some time, I am pleased to have made this progress. Those that care about Second Amendment Rights have put much effort into this as well."
