    Gun and Ammo tax.

    Since the recent Supreme Court ruling I am hearing more and more talk about a "firearm"tax. Should we run out and buy or watch and listen ?

    Someone in a deep blue state will try it. Or, they'll pass microstamping and ammo prices will go out the roof.

    A newly instituted tanning tax makes me think this regime will tax anything.

    We already have an excise tax on firearms and ammunition. It's called the Pittman-Robertson Act, and it's been around since the 1930's. The last I remember, it's now an 11% tax, and has been expanded since its beginning to apply to fishing equipment and some other sporting goods items. The money goes into a trust fund for wildlife restoration programs, stocking streams and lakes, and other associated purposes like hunter education.

    I'm sure sooner or later someone like Bingaman or Udall will attempt it. However with all the green this and green that, I'm waiting for the democrats to attempt taxing sunlight.

    We the people are in control. Due to the current circumstances...it's rather easy to forget that. We let it become what it is...gave them more power than they have a right to, and feeding the fire with our complacency all the time. Read my lips......no new taxes! Take back what's ours and what we have a right to in America. Today is an important reminder of our escape from tyranny and injustice. Once our nation was strong and willing and able to fight for what was right. We conquered and made victory. Now....we're letting it slip away for free thinking and individuality. May God help us all since it seems we can't help ourselves. Do something in your life to re-enforce or support history if you can. It's our country and not theirs. It's got to be a common goal, and I live for the day we all work as a team again...for what's right, and to make sure nothing got lost. Happy Independence Day everyone.

    From whom are you hearing this? If it's from emails whose subject looks like, "fwd. fwd. fwd. fwd. There takin our gunz!" then I think we're ok.

    Never let it be said that this forum can't still surprise me. I didn't think I'd ever see a post decrying free thinking and individuality.

    It's our country and not theirs.
    Please tell me that I'm not the only one that found this line chilling, and not in a good way.

    Trying to figure out the best forum for this topic, and sadly, no rational topic should contain this.

    Ammo is not micro-stamped by the manufacturer. The firearm stamps the ammo case when fired, thus identifying the weapon used. It wouldn't affect the cost of ammo, but the gun instead.
    How would an ammo maker know what firearm make and serial number is going to use that box of rounds?
