    Bill woould hike excise tax on guns, ammo

    BOHICA


    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.

    Yes yes yes ... hundreds of similar bills have been flopping around the state legislatures too...

    none have passed and none will.

    The "Miller case" shows that such a tax would be illegal/unconstitutional.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
