Are you licensed to reload that ammo?

I received an E-Mail from a friend of mine (Vietnam Vet.) this is what it said...

I don’t know if this is for real or NOT, just remember that for right now OK!
If this is on the up and up?  Shit will hit the FAN!..

Well you never know there are so many internet rumours and while I trust my friend explicitly he clearly said he did not know if it was true so I wanted to see what I could find out...

Thank you for your email.  NRA-ILA is well aware of the ongoing requirements at some Army bases for soldiers to register firearms with base authorities.  This is not a new issue; some bases have required registration for 10 years or even longer.
While the military has sweeping authority to control the conduct of personnel, the scope of these rules are troublesome.  Therefore, we are pursuing appropriate inquiries, and will report on the results as they become available.

Pretty disturbing and here is another heads up from WND...

Are you licensed to reload that ammo?
Alarm raised over treaty provision to ban activity

I just thought everyone should be informed the push is on to take away your 2nd Amendment Rights keep your eyes open and your powder dry.  The New World Order would like nothing better than to disarm you. This is the treaty referred to in the WND article.

You really have to take anything that is published on with a huge grain of salt. I was a daily visitor from its founding. During the initial War on Terror WND published numerous articles regarding the situations in Ashcanistan and Iraq. Much of what was published as fact later turned out to be unsubstantiated rumor.

Read with caution.
