(RightIsRight.co) – As every shooting enthusiast knows, gun ammunition has been in short supply for a very long time.
Given what we have just learned, the Democrats clearly know it and plan to capitalize on the demand for ammunition by taxing it even more than it already is taxed.
And, they are not going to stop with just taxes. They intend to use the taxes to fund anti-gun research as a cloak for disarming law-abiding Americans.
While we encourage you to watch the video “Gun Taxes Are Gun Control” further down this post, here’s a bit of what is going on across the country.
As ZeroHedge notes:
“Imagine walking into your local gun shop, buying a gun, ammo to practice with, and unknowingly funding research used by groups actively working to disarm law-abiding citizens nationwide. This is the reality of new proposed ammo and firearms taxation throughout the United States.
“Our newest example is New York Senate Bill S8415, which would add an arbitrary 5-cent tax per round of ammunition larger than .22 Caliber. Rounds smaller than .22 Caliber would be subject to a 2-cent tax per round. According to the bill, the tax revenue would go to the state’s Gun Violence Research Fund.
“What is the Gun Violence Research Fund, you may ask? According to Carl E. Heastie, speaker of the New York State Assembly, the Gun Violence Research Fund is meant to “Fund critical research into the root causes of gun violence, and help us address and solve those problems in our state and in our communities.” [emphasis added]
As ZeroHedge and the video below detail, the bottom line is Democrats, and anti-gun groups want these taxes for so-called research as window dressing for their real intent: Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.
