John McCain Proposes to Destroy Classic .45 Pistols Instead of Allowing them to be Sold Thru Civilian Marksmanship Program

But Senator John McCain had other ideas, as now he's introduced legislation in with the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 that will have the 1911's destroyed and recycled into components or different firearms.
(a) Army Transfers.—
(1) REQUIRED TRANSFER.—Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and subject to paragraphs (3) and (4), the Secretary of the Army shall transfer to Rock Island Arsenal all excess firearms, related spare parts and components, small arms ammunition, and ammunition components currently stored at Defense Distribution Depot, Anniston, Alabama, that are no longer actively issued for military service.
(2) REPURPOSING AND REUSE.—The items specified for transfer under paragraph (1) shall be melted and repurposed for military use as determined by the Secretary of the Army, including—
(A) the re-forging of new firearms or their components; and
(B) force protection barriers and security bollards.
I understand what might be the sentiment. It costs $200,000 a year to store them, and the metal could be used to construct things the army could actually use. My problem here is that the 1911s McCain has marked for destruction and repurpose are primarily the ones meant to go to the CMP.

Our family obeyed "Mother NRA", and voted for him. NEVER AGAIN!
Next time, we'll write our own names if we have to.
The b*st*rd should retire already.
"War Hero" my A$$! He should be sent back to the Hanoi Hilton.

Well I sure would like to get my hands on one of those 45s. I have never voted for the traitor McCain he used to be called song bird McCain. for some reason they never bring up the 43 sailors that died when he crashed his plane on the deck of a carrier. he was a rotten pilot but his dad was an admiral. Cruz is not even an American citizen and neither is Rubio and I can prove it in the written law. I know those laws well, I had to learn them for my own family members. I did all of the legal paperwork for my own daughter born the same year as Cruz and the years after my grand children were born after Rubio. I know by fact of law that Cruz and Rubio are not legal American citizens.
