Gun Owners Stock Up On Ammo, Fearing An Obama Tax On Bullets
Ammo hard to find as gun owners stock up
While I know of no specific plans to tax the hell out of bullets it does seem pretty crafty. Since a gun can't be taken away per the Second Amendment and the recent Supreme Court affirmation of the individual right of gun ownership a wily anti-Second Amendment advocate could attempt to do the next best thing - exert a high tax upon the bullets that go into the guns.
Since pistol whipping someone is only good when done up close and personal, making ammo harder to come by is likely to render the gun far less effective.
