When the bullets are shipped overseas to our military men and women to defend this country I'm sure you won't be complaining.

That approval will allow the investors to move ahead with construction of a 30,000-square-foot plant in the Rosedale tract in Johnstown, he said. The state grant will be provided only once the plant is in operation, he said.

"We are doing this project for two reasons. One, Johnstown is in desperate need for good manufacturing jobs. And second, there is a void in this country relative to 9 mm bullets. We are here to fill that void -- a market niche -- that this country needs," he said. Taken from Pittsburgh tribune review does not sound like they are going overseas for military use to me
