New Taxes & Fees

In the past we have discussed the possibility of increases in Federal and State taxes and/or fees as a form of stealth gun control. Not only would these fees serve to limit the activities of current gun owners, but they would go a long way in discouraging new individuals from exploring the shooting sports.

The attached article states that places like New Jersey (5%) Maryland (50%) and Massachusetts (50%) are considering additional taxes on ammunition. At the Federal level California Representative Linda Sanchez is proposing a 10% additional fee on any gun that can be concealed.

So, be aware that these folks are looking for other ways to restrict our freedoms. When you contact your political leaders this week be sure to mention your opposition to these punitive actions.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
