It has already been brought up from what I've been reading. "Big tax" on all ammo and componets. You will even have to buy a license ( $50 from what I read )to purchase it and go through a background check to get the license. The license will only be good for 1 year so you will be out the money for that every year. Every puchase will go on a federal list so they will keep track of how much you buy and when and where you buy it. Some other states want to be like New York and stop any shipping of ammo or componets from out of state to the state like New York did.
These are are just some proposals being brought up now. Before they get done we will see many more assinine laws I am sure, for that is what they do. So knowing all this I know it feeds panic, but I hope we can keep them succeeding in doing what they have set out to do to us.

I don't think New York has done this yet, maybe New York City (the jerks that get to make the rules for the rest of the state....)

But I know when the bill first came to light, Wal-Mart said they would sell what ammo is on hand and wait to see what happens for being ID'd for every ammo purchase.

As far as reloading components or loaded ammo I havn't heard any mailing restrictions, YET

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I have been watching and reading and I think we are going to be ok. The panic buying will stop and by summer I think we are going to see more and more ammo, ext.. in the supply chain. Shooting related companies want to make money, they want product to sell.

But I wish you guys and gals would stop talking about big taxes as people read this and if you all make it sound like that is ok then you are going to see it. It is not ok with me, life is expensive enough right now and if any of my politicians start supporting that bs I am going to call their office and then vote them out.

I am a law abiding citizen and I shoot and hunt. They can go pick on the bad guys.

God Bless America !!

"They can go pick on the bad guys."

They won't because you are an easier target. Criminals do't buy ammunition, they steal it, like guns or obtain it/them black market style (reminds me of Holder and Fast and Furious).....

I can survive any background check, keep in mind I hold an FFL already so microscopic background checks are the norm for me. To hold an FFL, you have to be a model citizen. I'm on every list anyway....

My accountant sent me a note a while back that stated that the average citizen is taxed at approximately 50 cents on every dollar earned, taking into account all levied taxes, Income Tax, sales tax, excise tax, death tax, business tax...the list goes on.

Government entities get all the tax money and still manage to go broke and want more. Viscious circle those politicians have created.

Problem is, with barely 50% of the country paying taxes to support ther other 50%, something has to give and soon.

Ever noticed that politicians never take a pay cut? I have.

So, they impose a hefty tax on ammunition, I look it as more entitlement money. I also think to myself, 'maybe I should go on entitlement too'. Seems to be the American way, the socialist way.

Keep in mind that the shooting sports are a luxury, not a necessity, at least not for 95% of firearm owners. Luxuries get taxed at a disappropriate amount compared to necessities. Thats how it works.

You gotta 'pay to play'. It's how it works in this country, like it or not. I guess if you don't like it, you can go live somewhere else and I don't see a mass exodus from this country.......
