I support increased funding for prevention, research and mitigation. BUT the 50% tax on ammunition is excessive and a barrier to those who legitimately need and use firearms in their lives. There should be a tiered system instead, where a reasonable amount of ammo can be purchased at the current tax rate or same rate as guns; over that threshold, the drastic increase to 50% is reasonable. Yes, implementation would mean that ammunition sales would need to be tracked. This would allow working class and rural populations sufficient supply for reasonable practice and necessary use, while imposing the higher tax burden on those purchasing excessive quantities. I don’t routinely use firearms and don’t know what a reasonable threshold would be, but suspect it might differ depending on local conditions; I’m happy to defer to those with more current information on determining the exact level that is “reasonable”.
