LAS VEGAS -- The national discussion about gun violence is prompting Nevada lawmakers to consider new legislation.
Among the proposals is an excise tax on guns and ammunition to pay for mental health care.
Assembly Majority Leader William Horne requested the bill as a way to fund services for the mentally ill and victims of crime.
Although the ink isn't dry on a draft yet, should it pass, gun buyers could expect a tax on guns of between $20 and $25 and a tax on ammunition of 2 cents per round.
What is the Navada Firearms Coalition doing about this?
p.s.; I would think that if this passes it will tell us all that we need to know.
What is it you would have the Coalition do? A new lobbyist has been hired that will work against all such legislation in Carson City. This is at great expense. Funds that as I understand they don't fully have yet to carry through the session.
If it does pass, what will it tell us that we need to know?
