It was originally stated that it is a 35% tax on ammunition. My wife was looking at Fakebook and she said it is a $.35 PER ROUND tax! I just looked at the bill itself and this is what it reads:
"That the general statutes be amended to establish an excise tax on gross earnings derived from the first sale of ammunition within this state at the rate of thirty-five per cent per round."
So, if it is $.35 per round, a 10 round box would cost an additional $3.50, a 100 round box would cost an additional $35, and 1000 rounds would cost an additional $350!! This is the left pushing their anti gun and anti self defense rhetoric on us so they can "decrease crime" and fund more anti gun campaigns. I'm wondering if the left thinks this will actually decrease crime, or if they don't care and since there isn't a ban on guns, they will just make it more difficult for us law abiding gun owners to get ammunition at REASONABLE prices.
Off my soap box- for now.
