The War on Ammo
Is the shutdown of the last US smelter part of a multi-pronged attack on ammunition?

Most gun control advocates still cloak their true intentions behind opposition to “assault rifles”. But some are coming out of the closet, explicitly or tacitly admitting that their goal is a full ban on private arms. Gen McChrystal said in Jan 2013, “I think serious action is necessary. Sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges and I just don’t think that’s enough,” he said. Translation: we’ve been infringing on the Second Amendment, now we need to get serious and ban arms.
And as McChrystal worked the talk show circuit, he didn’t just talk about vaguely defined “assault rifles” but focused repeatedly on how the dangerous full metal bullets used by the military shouldn’t be in private hands. The reality is that while full metal jacket bullets may have better penetration of bulletproof jackets, hollow point bullets are designed to do far more damage to the human body. So much more damaging that hollow points are banned by Geneva Convention from use by the military against enemy combatants. Yet, hollow points are what governments use against their own citizens and what Homeland Security is hoarding by the billions.
