    Lawmakers seek to sock gun, ammo buyers with new taxes

    Democrats in Connecticut and Illinois are proposing legislation that would add taxes ranging from 10 to 35 percent on gun and ammo sales

    In the Constitution State, Connecticut state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest, D-West Hartford, is backing House Bill 5040 which would add a 35 percent per round excise tax on ammunition. The move is a scaled-down version of a similar measure she introduced last year that sought a 50 percent bump in ammo prices. The tax money levied would go to “increase funding for gun violence prevention and reduction efforts.”

    State gun rights groups have slammed the proposal.

    “Clearly if such a law were passed, it would make practicing and maintaining proficiency with a firearm more difficult and will impact lower-income gun owners disproportionately,” said the Connecticut Citizens Defense League in a statement.

    The language of the bill is pretty simple, and anybody must be able to put one forward, even if they are stupid people. Yeah, look what they have done for the NE already, the stupid people I mean.

    N ACT ESTABLISHING AN EXCISE TAX ON AMMUNITION.Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
    1. That the general statutes be amended to establish an excise tax on
    2. gross earnings derived from the first sale of ammunition within this
    3. state at the rate of thirty-five per cent per round.

      Statement of Purpose: To establish an excise tax on ammunition to increase funding for gun violence prevention and reduction effort


    ....I copied that entry from the PDF

    Why don't they tender a bill to the legislature, that charges a $1,000 fee, on a box for ammo? I am not kidding, why don't they simply pull the trigger, so to speak? That is what they want, no ammo for guns, or guns either.

    Hamlet and King Lear are two of the best works of literature that there is. And in American elite universities, Shakespeare is being reviled, and that is a new evil.
    America cannot go on being free, when it is always taking the foundations out. If Shakespeare is the enemy, then I am the enemy too, because I love the guys works.

    Well, at least this will hit all the gang bangers and criminals where it hurts. These states should be a crime free utopia in no time.

    35 cents per round would more than double it's cost

It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a man’s throat and dictate how he must live his life."
