Assemblymember Proposes Bullet Tax

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


Sacramento Assemblyman Roger Dickinson wants to put a 5 cent tax for every bullet you buy in the State of California.

Gun advocates say though it just doesn’t add up.

“Our politicians have become some of the best gun and amo salesmen in history,” noted Mark Gardner a Sacramento gun owner.

Talk about the irony of it all.  Guns and amunition can’t stay in the stores long enough.  But a 5 cent bullet tax just won’t fly with most gun owners.

“People will just reload their own,” explained Julia Draper.

“You can buy all you need yourself. Go home and make your own bullets.  It’s cheaper,” said Ken Moyer.

Others say a bullet tax is aimed in the wrong direction, arguing that more should be done to improve access to treatments for mental illness.

    The Only thing these politicians know is how to raise taxes, fees, and regulations. This is just another "revenue" scheme from the Communist Party. It is also a major Infringement on our constitutional rights to own and bear arms. It disenfranchises poor people from exercising Their rights to purchase ammunition at low costs. This is the same as the old Jim Crow laws of yesteryear.
    Those Marxists who demonize gun owners is Discriminatory and should be considered a Hate crime. It is Unconstitutional to make any laws which Infringe on a person's rights to own and bear arms. A bullet or arms tax puts an Undue burden on a legal Right.

    I propose a 100% tax on all books, movies, and video games sold in order to pay for the extreme violence they depict. This would help pay for the massive damage Hollywood and the gaming industry has had on society. We should ban all violence in movies, books, and video games. Will we see this type of legislation? Of course not. Why not? It makes more sense but the Communists will say it would violate the 1st amendment. It Would it? Yes it would. Just like the bullet tax is a violation of the 2nd amendment. Please stop discrimination against gun owners. It is disgusting and illegal. We will most likely have to sue Mr. Dickinson for violating his oath of office to uphold the Constitution and his blatant Civil Rights abuse against gun owners.
