If the price of ammo gets any higher, and the government DOES impose a "special tax" on ammo, it will open a new black market smuggling in foreign ammunition. The government doesn't stop illegal aliens or drugs from getting in, how could they stop that SMELLY stinky mexican ammo being smuggled ? I fired ONE round of .22 caliber mexican ammo, = PEEEYEW, and it smoked worse than black powder.
