Shoot down a 50 percent tax increase on ammunition

Legislating a 50 percent tax on ammunition to decrease gun deaths in America is like forcing McDonald’s to double the price of a Whopper to prevent obesity.

While it’s admirable that State Rep. Jillian Gilchrest, D-Conn., wants to decrease gun deaths in America, she has sponsored a bill that, if passed, would have just that effect.

Gilchrest tweeted that “if increasing the tax on ammunition can prevent just one death, it's worth it.”

Just more feeble attempts of elected servants trying to justify their jobs on the backs of the law abiding citizen. Disgraceful...

This is the third article with the misleading caption of a 50 percent tax increase.

It is not a 50 percent tax increase. It is a 50 percent tax.

"A bill like this, which might keep low-income gun owners from purchasing the ammunition..."

Not MIGHT, but WILL. I understand the intent to be generous, but in this case it is not necessary. This law would, DE FACTO, keep low-income gun owners from purchasing ammunition.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By a very conservative estimate, a hundred million people have died at the hands of their own governments in this century. Given that record, how bad could anarchy be? — Joseph Sobran
