I have been buying at least a box of something every time I go to town.
I will continue to do so till it gets too expensive to justify it.

Unfortunately it will not make it back to the state wildlife agencies. It will go where the rest of our tax money goes.......foreign aid!

What is the reason behind the tax increase?

Just price gouging by the government ?

Good question.
Would this apply to the military as well or just us peasants?

Sin Tax... Vilify guns, tobacco, oil, gas guzzlers, certain foods, and the marxist can impose punitive taxes. Look for the list to grow until all our money has been redistributed.

Executive orders can do a lot but he cannot raise taxes, gotta be Congress where we at least stand a maybe chance of winning. What he can do is crank up the paperwork machine to buy anything semi-automatic or on the bad boy list. Annual licensing. Fingerprints, mandatory psych evaluation, 6 month wait, Annual re-license fee of say 200.00. Traffic tickets could dis-qualify you. Must be over 35. If you private sell you go to jail if you don't follow a ten page list of rules. Those were just off the top of my head, every last one can be implemented via Executive Order. If you doubt me, look up the orders upon which the EPA works.

This is one of the primary reasons why people are paying ANYTHING to get an AR and why the 1911 variants are so hard to find. Soon, we will have a ten page form to fill out to buy bulk 22, or case volume of centerfire in specific cartridge types.

Today I saw run of the mill 223 ammo being sold for over 1.00 a bullet, that is insanity, it was an auction that started at 1.00 and was at 205.00 for 200 rounds.

We have a raving emotional idiot at 1600 PA Ave and this is just the beginning. Watch what and how much you shoot until the fog clears.

Catch you on the ridgeline

It doesn't have to be a "tax" since that will have to come though Congress.

Obama CAN raise the "fees" under the rules and regulations of ammo and power.

Remember the "hazmat fees"?? He can simply raise them. Plus the lose power we order for reloading comes with a hazmat fee to have it shipped to our homes. Well he can change the rules to incule the power inside the factory bullets to come under those same fees shipped to ammo business in which they will pass it on to us in higher prices. Since it's not a "tax" he does not need Congress. Say before all this started a round of factory ammo cost 30 cents a round, add a "new hazmat fee" of 40 cents a round and the new price is now 70 cents a round of ammo. This covers ALL ammo, centerfire rifles, rimfire rifles, handguns and shotgun ammo. What's to stop him???

Ain't the ammo tax only like .10 cents now? Is this proposal just 50% more to that? If so...not a big deal.

Stock up guys!!!! That's where they gonna get us. I don't think they are going to get our guns, just make the ammo so that we can't afford it. Buy some Russian ammo from sportsman connection.

I'm paying 40% of our income to taxes. Not to mention state sales taxes...not to mention road taxes, fuel taxes, or other BS taxes...I'm lucky if I get to keep 30% when its all said and done... the American dream is fastly becoming the American nightmare. We will be a third world country where wars break out in no time at the rate our pos president and congress is taking us down...

A increase in taxes is ALWAYS a big deal. This is what is wrong with this [censored] country now. To many people say well is not a big deal...to many people say it doesn't affect me so I don't care. To many people are ready to just bow down and kiss feet...not me! It pisses me off everyday! And I make my voice heard everyday. It's all I can do legally.

Crow Stik is right.

They want to try to tax it so much we can't afford it.

A $20.00 box of ANY ammo taxed at a 50% rate is $10 making the new price $30. A $40 box of ammo taxed at a 50% rate is now $60 and so on.

Say you pay $5 a box of 22 lr's. The new tax of 50% will be $2.50 making that box $7.50.

None of this incules sales taxes which will be added on.
