From the Annals of Police Militarization: EPA Shuts Down MRAP Transfers


Not exactly gun but . . . TTAG reader RS writes:

You may be interested to know that about two weeks ago the EPA notified DOD that ALL engine powered equipment transfers to ANYONE ANYWHERE was to stop. This includes to fire departments, police, other government entities including GSA and including foreign military sales. This should be shutting off the conduit of MRAP crack to law enforcement. But as they are "special," who knows? Fire or cop the minimal miles per year isn't doing diddly in the pollution level. Perhaps the smoke from the fire I'm going to put out might be a large issue? Right now, as Obama closes the Army, a HUGE quantity of great low mile/hour stuff is available. In reality this should be going into storage yards of THE NEXT WAR.
