    State Wide Ammo Tax does not does not infringe on RKBA

    State Wide Ammo Tax proposed.

    Gun owners are responsible for gun violence.
    The legislature further finds that gun ownership is linked to increased gun-related homicide and accidental deaths.


    Playing fast and loose with definitions, claiming reloading components are "ammunition".

    As used in this section, "ammunition" means cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellant powder designed for use in any firearm.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    As Obama preps to tout ‘successes,’ gun control push begins in Olympia

    The Seattle Times this morning is reporting that President Barack Obama intends to “call attention to his administration’s successes” during his final State of the Union address this evening; an event that likely will not include references to Operation Fast and Furious, or the Benghazi debacle.

    five cents per round of
    ammunition



    Well that's only a 25% tax .. what you complaining about?

    All that $$$ going to your local LEO too. Of course, they don't have to pay this tax.


    Have you been knocking on the sponsors' doors at midnight to complain?

    You know, Michigan has a similar deal with tobacco. Special taxes and all that. Indiana has a lower set point for that stuff. I have no idea how many MILLIONS in lost revenue have happened over the years because people go there and buy large amounts. If this passes, I expect there will be "state line" gun stores springing up in the WA neighbors.

    Fight it, stock up and buy on line or plan a once a month trip just outside the borders
    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

    Warning shots are illegal in most places anyway, you'd be a fool to issue warning shots when you could get prosecuted for it.

    US v Miller shows that any tax on firearms and ammo are unconstitutional.

    My local reps have responded to my email about this bill as well as the "assault weapons" bill. All are against this stupid tax.

    Well, if they're right about taxes not infringing on the RKBA...

    Then it wouldn't infringe upon the first amendment to put a per-word tax on pamphlets and a per milliliter tax on printer ink.
