Seattle Gun & Ammo Tax

Here's an interesting update on yet another failed far left idea.

I know I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree and so I just don't get how I could see this coming with 100% certainty and yet otherwise (or supposedly so) intelligent people thought it was brilliant.

So glad that I live on the right side of the state and even more gladderer to be moving to Idaho for retirement.

They did the same thing in Cook County (that's the county Chicago is in) last year. They put an additional tax of $25.00 on every gun sold, 5 cents on each round of center fire ammo and 1 cent on every round of .22 ammo. In talking with a guy behind the counter at Cabela's he said ammo sales have plummeted.

I think it back fired on them, back to the drawing boards. We have had a rise here in break-ins of gun shops.
