Default Federal Budget

Part of this years federal budget that the Republicans caved on has a few interesting items that the president has signed off on.
The National Defense Authorization Act will now allow the Army to transfer surplus vintage handguns to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) for sale to the general public.
Another thing in the budget that the NDAA has is a provision requiring the Secretary of Defense to establish a process for commanders at military bases,reserve centers, and recruiting centers to allow service members assigned to that base or facility to carry a firearm.
The third provision prohibits the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from banning traditional ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act, this will keep them from banning lead bullets as a hazard waste product.

So, I guess there are some good things that got passed along with some of the stuff we didn't like. That's what compromise is all about. With luck, we get a Republican in office and maintain the Congress and then we can see more of the stuff we want to get passed get passed, because you don't have to worry about a Veto from the President.
