I'm sure that will make someone who is buying ammo and preparing to do a mass shooting think twice.

This is not surprising as she’s a junior member of the Assembly and she is doing what those who voted for her apparently want: making gun ownership too onerous, making it too expensive, too hard with red tape. It has nothing to do with crime but everything to do with forcing Gun Owners to surrender their rights and discouraging potential gun buyers.

$0.35 per round? Does that include rimfire .22 lr? Because if it does a case of 5K would cost $2000.

Expensive plinking.

Edit... Oops.. I misread the letter. Its 35% instead of $0.35.

Nevertheless, that is ridiculously high. What are they going to do with the revenue? Grow government some more, more bureaucrats?

They have an agenda and don’t want facts to muddy things up. With them trying to get another casino in Bridgeport and legalize smoking dope along with tolls it’s pretty clear grabbing money from the folks is # 1. They propose .35 cents and settle for .18 cents, it’s about getting the foot in the door.

Another great reason to cast and reload.

I bet that representative, Jillian, or whatever the [email protected]#$ her name was, would flip out if they decided to tax woman’s dress shoes at 50% as a health measure to combat ankle and plantar issues ever woman faces. I couldn’t watch the whole video, I was that incensed. Sorry fellow shooters in CT.

Sorry CT... I feel for you, as we are facing the same thing down here in VA.

For the dems to think about taxing ammo, etc... it all started here with the offensive, reverse-racist, standup comic(?), Chris Rock:

The 9th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals—not one of the more Second-Amendment friendly judicial bodies—in its 2014 ruling on Jackson v. City of San Francisco, ruled that excessive taxation on ammunition is a de facto ban on firearms and therefore was deemed unconstitutional.

Keep in mind that the courts have allowed the Remington lawsuit to move forward in CT. despite the rulings in the past not allowing law suites against firearms manufacturers for improper use by reckless individuals.

Obviously the anti-gunners couldn't care less. If they can't ban guns then they'll go after the ammunition instead. Don't forget there was a bill floating around in one state a couple of years ago that would have limited ammo purchases to 40 rounds per year. Obviously it was meant to hurt everyone except the stupid Fudds who only go hunting once a year with rusty rifles they never even shoot.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Unless and until it goes to the USC, it only applies in the 9th circus.

More likely they are retching from "bad meat" the night before. It more than pains me how far we have sunk with the "soccer moms" and booty-gigs. More than sad, it is an abomination of everything we value - not just 2A, but all things associated with moral turpitude. JMHO.

Seriously? That's literally 3 minutes of ammo in some cases. Wow.

Yup it’s been said before can’t ban guns completely they will go after ammo. If it’s new ammo reloading supplies is next.

I feel your pain CT...Do yourself a favor and focus on response/solutions rather then the malaise (I'm not saying you per se, just in general) this can bring. In other-words keep fighting...

March, sue, fund the Local-NRA affiliate and get those law suits going.

Stay optimistic, POTUS has already seeded almost 25% of the federal judiciary (including district, appellate, and SC judges) with additional conservatives in just 3 years, and he and Mitch continue to have this as the TOP priority domestically. This is going to start to matter in the near future.

That Crazy Lefty Women from Hawaii I think she is a Senator was bitching about this on MSNBC just yesterday. And guess what, she admitted to the host that there isn't a bleeping thing she and the other Lefty Senators can do to stop Mitch and POTUS in this regard.

Just like the 8 years of Obama change this country for the worse; we will see a giant leap to the positive after 8 years of President-Trump (it is already happening).

You are not only fighting for CT but the entire nation, as bad laws can spreed to other states.
