    House bill would boost tax on ammo by 50%, guns 20%

    A new gun control scheme that would boost the federal excise tax on ammunition to 50 percent and raise the tax on some firearms to 20 percent has been introduced by two anti-gun Democrats and is just today raising alarms on the Internet, and at the offices of the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    Well fortunately, this isn't going anywhere. But we should all be concerned that pushing bills like this is a popular political move in so many jurisdictions.

    Yeah, that's what they said about Obamacare.
    How'd that work out for the pundits?


    This is going to ignite another run on ammunition.

    I propose that instead, we tax political campaign contributions and earmark the millions in new tax revenue for incarceration of all the gang bangers. Not only would this do more to stop gun violence, it would result in us not having to watch as many of the stupid political commercials on TV at election time. I get really sick of them.

    The SCOTUS decision that gave the green light to obamacare didn't proclaim it constitutional. But it did say obamacare was a tax and as such Congress can impose whatever tax they want.

    And Dave is also right about ammo. Get ready for another run on it. But I'll add when the run is over get used to paying a lot more for it.

    They can rightfully say they aren't taking our guns. All they have to do is impose a tax so high that nobody will be able to afford to shoot the guns they already have.

    Right..........like the gangbangers and thugs get their ammo from Walmart, BiMart, Dick's, and Sportsman's Warehouse. If something liken this was ever passed, it would create the largest black market for ammo ever to be. Liberalism is a disease that needs to be eradicated from the planet.

    Pine box is too good for them. I would prefer shallow grave with a dirt blanket

    Sooner or later they keep throwing this garbage up and some piece of garbage law will pass. Sooner or later the big tax monster needs to be retrained on who the master is.

    It will never pass constitutional muster. It creates a barrier that inhibits a citizen from exercising their rights. This is constitutional the same way requiring government ID for voting is constitutional, which it is not. The ACA is different because it's just another income tax.

    Some politician just decided to write a bill that would never pass so they can appear tough on guns without doing anything.

    I agree, but seeing how long it takes for a case to get before the SCOTUS, we could have 5 very left wing judges in there.

    If they can't take them they will try to tax them out of reach. This is just another example of left leaning, control freak, power mongering, money grubbing, knuckle heads doing everything they can to take more money and power away from the people. Between all the new taxes and fees, money printing, government seizure of private companies, expansion of social welfare programs, spreading war around the world, propping up financial institutions, they have run this country and it's people into a debt we aren't going to escape from. Their solution is to just tax and spend. They are elitists jack holes that don't deserve to scrub toilets for a living much less run this country.

    We have chicago thugs running the government, appointing radicals and criminals into every spot they can. Do you really think the corrupt supreme court will side with the Constitution? Just look at how they weaseled obamacare through,,, :drunk:
