Yeah, gotta believe they need money, but it's not like people aren't buying guns, they still are, it's just those who are buying aren't us who see high prices, know they're high, and stop spending. We're the ones who use gunbroker, not first time buyers or new gun owners, so when we stop buying stuff gunbroker gets hurt.
You're going to get charged state sales tax regardless of how you pay for the transaction. The seller gets charged for it and he'll pass it along to the buyer, just like any sales tax transaction.

I don't know why you should have to pay GB fees, that usually gets paid by the seller. He's the one using the service and getting the money.
