Illinois Democrats seek new punitive taxes on ammunition

Meanwhile, there are also proposals for new ammunition taxes at the state level. Illinois HB 1274 and HB 5167 do not look likely to go anywhere, but they do serve well as further demonstrations (if such demonstrations were necessary) of Illinois Democrats' desire to punish peaceable gun owners for the crimes of violent thugs.

If we are to have a "violence tax," then we should impose it directly on the criminals committing the violence, and make it payable in blood. [More]
