For when I get elected:
For the military or federal law enforcement to get authorization for funding for new weapons or platforms, all obsolete transferable weapons must be sold through the Civilian Marksmanship Program for supplemental funding.
If the Army wants a new machinegun, every pre-1986 M60, M1919, every generation of M16 below the M16A3, etc., must be liquidated from inventory to the CMP for civilian sale.
They want a new submachine gun/PDW, every pre-1986 Thompson, grease gun, MP5, etc, must be liquidated from inventory to the CMP for civilian sale.
If they want in with the new, they must have more out with the old.
Same for ammo.
Any ammo older than 10 years must be liquidated from the arsenal to get restocking of new ammo.
Just think of how much supplementary money the DOD and DOJ will get for new guns and equipment. That’s the ticket, because once some bureaucracy sticks that opium needle of new tax money into its arm, it will never be able to give it up.
