Bitter reports NYC requires the buyers of their empty brass from the police ranges to destroy it so it cannot be reloaded.
Phil Walzak, the press secretary to Mayor Bill de Blasio, said: “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 sales of bullet shell casings and lead to metal recyclers supports our overall commitment to public safety.”
So… it’s just “common sense gun control” to make ammo more expensive for the civilian market?
I see. They really don’t get the part of the Heller decision where they said the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right.
This story reminds me of something I read in Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl. One woman did not want her slaves to eat the same food as her family so at the end of the meal she would spit in the leftovers before the cook and maid could share it with their families.
It appears the politicians of New York City have an attitude toward gun owners similar to that of some slave owners in the 1800’s. I’m not surprised. As Daniel Webster said, “There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”
