    A good background on the arms industry in small town upstate NY. I saw a video just last night of work in the Remington plant, they were making bolt guns. I was surprised at how small an operation it was, they turn them out in ones and twos and twenties. It's not an assembly line of hundreds per hour.

    One quibble. The 223 sized bullet is prized because it wounds not kills. The idea being that one wounded soldier takes at least 2 or 3 to take care of him. And the standard military round that people buy by the thousands is hard jacketed, meaning it doesn't expand rapidly.

    I'm not going to even discus what type of bullet or gun is best for mass killings. Notice the difference in number of woundings between Aurora and Newtown? I'd think there's a reason.

      Them stocks of thousands bought, especially after the Sandy Hooks, showing how much they really care about the younger generations among us as so called responsible adults, have Law Enforcement once more in a bind because ammunition can't be produced fast enough, that sold to law enforcement and even military and bought in the civilian market. Along with buying thousands of rounds that aren't produced here but in the lower waged countries like China, ask a gun owner about it's arsenal and where from!
