(sarcasm on)...There must be a lot of bullets sold there!....Silly me, I thought they were anti-gun.Commissioner Roberto Maldonado wants to slap a 10-cent-a-bullet tax on those buying ammunition in the county. It's one of dozens of plans offered to close the county's $500 million budget deficit.
Just a further attempt at restricting guns. They say they are going to use the money to balance their budget, but do you really think that will be the result?
No, it will just make everybody go outside the county to buy.
