Democrats In Congress Introduce New 20% Gun Tax & 50% Ammo Tax


Liberals never get tired of trying to take guns away from law abiding Americans.

The Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act of 2013, was proposed by U.S. Reps. Danny K. Davis, D-Ill., and Bill Pascrell, D-N.J. The bill seeks to raise the tax rate on gun sales from 10% to 20%.

Perhaps even more disturbing is that the bill also seeks to raise the tax rate on ammunition purchases to 50%.

…The bill could mark a change in gun control strategy by anti-gun lawmakers. Courts have ruled several times in favor of an individual right to bear arms recently and gun control seems to be of the lowest priority to average Americans (despite the sketchy poll numbers of that anti-gunners continuously quote).

Knowing they can’t outright ban or limit guns directly the anti-gun lawmakers may take advantage of their ability to tax in order to institute additional gun control.

So, it’s a mixture of two of the Left’s favorite things: gun grabbing and higher taxes. Happily, there’s no chance this bill can pass as long as Republicans control the House. We spend a lot of time complaining about Republicans in Congress and they certainly deserve it. But, if anyone tells you there’s no difference between the Dems and the Republicans, bills like this show you why both parties aren’t the same.
