    Default Ammunition Laws And Taxation

    Have any of you heard of or about these laws. I looked at the website, it seems ligit, the only mistake I noticed was that the tax (atleast in SC was 0.005 per round.) I still don't like it or agree with it, I received it in an email.

    Subject: Can't sell ammunition after June 30, 2009


    If you don't believe it just check the link at the bottom!!! Can't sell ammunition after June 30, 2009 ---ALERT


    Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009

    Ammunition Accountability Legislation

    Remember how Obama said that he wasn't going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

    The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture 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.

    Send to your friends in these states AND fight to dissolve this BILL!!

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

    This is a lot of what is driving the ammo market nuts. Not happening
    this is copied from a previous thread

    Just received this about the issue...
    Thank you for contacting NRA-ILA. The bills to which you refer (Ammo Accountability) died at the end of the sessions in 2008. However, they will likely be reintroduced this year, and sessions thereafter, and will certainly pose significant threats: www.ammunitionaccountability.com

    So far we've been successful in preventing passage of this legislation. Legislation in California or one of the New England states has a chance of getting through; however, most legislators and ballistics experts recognize that the this and similar technology is unreliable: http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactShe...ad.aspx?id=246

    This is a proposal by a commercial enterprise that has a patent on technology to imprint the codes. They are trying to create a demand for their product by making it mandatory. Though the "Ammunition Accountability" website claims it is "a newly forming group" that "includes gun crime victims, industry representatives, law enforcement, public officials, public policy experts, and more," the owner of the company admitted on NRA News that his lobbying firm put up the whole thing.

    We have a fact sheet on the issue and link to the NRA News interview at http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactShe...=227&issue=005 , and a feature article that appeared in NRA magazines on this and other ammunition issues is available at http://www.nraila.org/Issues/Articles/Read.aspx?id=289

    Opposing "ammunition accountability" remains at the top of our list of legislative priorities. We'll keep everyone posted on our website and in our magazines if they try to seriously pursue passage in any state, or in the U.S. Congress.

    Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns, and as always, we appreciate your support!

    Sincerely,
    Krista Cupp
    NRA-ILA Grassroots Division


    Don't let rumors like this spread, it is causing people to freak out and that is one reason you can't find a box of .38's or anything else these days. Prices are getting crazy and by people like us letting this stuff get around are actually helping the anti gun cause by making our own gun control in the form of limited ammo on the shelves and high gun prices

    Thanks,

    Glad I didn't forward it, I figured one of you would have the scoop. Still kinda scary that any bill of this nature has even been introduced.
