ammo confiscation and taxation

Post by beanydog » 24 Nov 2008, 11:54

Subject: Ammo Confiscation

Many Americans are scared-to-death at what might be coming....

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana)
requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacturer in a data
base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what
calibers. Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the
ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011.
(Including hand loaded ammo). They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every
round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona,
California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland,
Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

To find more about the anti-gun group that is sponsoring this legislation and the specific legislation for each state, go to:

I'll go buy a few bricks of .22LR and hide each round throughout my apartment, I'll tell 'em how much I have, and they can find those while I spread the word and the rest of the ammo in the city goes *poof*.

Yeah, you could, you know, seriously hurt somebody if you collected both guns AND ammo.

Well if they come for my ammo, they'd better bring kevlar catcher's mits. I'll throw the bullets out to them one at a time, as fast as I can pull the trigger.
