Another Attempt At An Ammo Tax In New York State

March 10, 2023

ALBANY, NY – State Capital area media outlets are reporting that the New York City Dems are talking about, once again, the possibility of passing a tax on ammunition sold in New York State.

CBS 6 in Albany, New York, reports that Assemblywoman Pat Fahy said the tax will depend on the size of the bullet – anywhere from 2 to 5 cents a round. “So, if you buy 50 rounds, it’ll be just a couple of extra dollars,” said Fahy. “So, it’s not a huge tax, but another disincentive to arming up.”

Senator George Borrello says three things about this.
1 – He hopes it fails again and doesn’t get out of committee
2 – It’s a far left attempt to ban legal weapons in New York State
3 – It would only affect those that purchase ammo legally, not those that buy ammo on the streets

“It’s just another attempted and misguided ineffective way for my liberal colleagues to suspend the second amendment rights of law abiding citizens,” Borrello told Wlea News. “They (the Dems) coddle criminals vs taking them to task as they should. Because if they could, my progressive colleagues would take away the rights of law abiding citizens to own guns, while allowing criminals to be arrested and released for committting crimes, with or without guns.”
