    Spent NYPD Range Shell Casings Cannot Be Sold to Ammo Manufacturers



    According to the New York Times, Georgia Arms won the auction for the shell casings in 2012 with a bid of $67,680.

    NYT reports that "Georgia Arms routinely buys once-fired shell casings, reloads them with bullets and sells a bag of 50 for $15 to the public." Their winning bid in 2012 netted them "28,000 pounds of shell casings."

    New York's Department of Citywide Administrative Services is holding an auction for the first time since Georgia Arms bought the shell casings in 2012. The prize is "67,200 pounds...of spent brass casings," enough to be converted "into millions of bullets." Mayor de Blasio has made it clear that the bidding is open only to "recyclers or their representatives."

    In other words, Georgia Arms need not apply.

    De Blasio press secretary Phil Walzak explained:

    As a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Mayor de Blasio has pledged to protect our people and support the national movement for common sense gun control. Limiting the sell of bullet shell casings and lead to metal recyclers supports our overall commitment to public safety.

    Black Blade: So under Bloomberg it was okay to sell brass to Georgia Arms but not under de Blasio?

    so the taxpayers need to pay even more now that the brass thjye already paid for cant be sold to the highest bidder .

    Its also a little scary that there is that much used brass by the pD department . How much free practice do they need?

    I feel that the taxpayers are getting F^%ked an need to file suit .

    Takes lots of training to hit a perp a bystander and send another 40 plus rounds who knows where. Sad.And God knows training on their MP5' s must be scary to watch.

    As civilians, we are taught to 'double-tap' and wait a second to see if agression has ceased, and if not, a shot to the head. 'Mozambique Drill'
    Our finest are taught to shoot until the magazine is empty, reload and repeat.
    Step two, confiscate all civilian phones that may have been recording the altercation.

    Warren De Blasio Wilhelm (his given name at birth) is not the brightest berry on the bush.

    Where does he think cartridge brass is going to be recycled TO? Belt buckle manufacturers?

    yea, this sounds fishy to me.

    i bet a lot of government connected folks are getting very fat off the ammo panic prices-- they probably don't want the brass out because some political type sold the ammo to al-quaida or hammas and pocketed the $$$$
