Wow, Obama wins the election and they can't wait to get out the new legislation that attacks our 2nd Amendment Rights! They're not sure they can get all our guns so they go after the ammunition we need to fire the guns, what crap.
I guess I have one good reason now to start going to gun shows now. You may not find the best deals on guns there but you can usually buy ammunition in bulk at a pretty good price. While the ammunition is currently not coded I guess it's time to stock up!
These bills were introduced long before Obama was elected, and if you'll notice, in Mississippi the bill is already dead. Since they're state bills, they also have nothing to do with who is in the Whitehouse, although most were introduced while Bush was there. Damn that Bush, he's trying to take our guns before he leaves. [:@]
Also, many of the bills indicate a 1/2 cent tax, that would mean an additional 10 cents for my box of 20 rounds. Hardly the $2.50 stated by Corey. Given the other factors causing the steep rise in ammo prices I wouldn't worry too much about this causing shooting to become too expensive.
Old news here, but I suppose I can see why it was posted. Nothing like keeping the masses agitated.
If you think for one cotton pickin' minute that Obama being elected into the presidential office has no bearing on these bills being reintroduced to a firm liberal congress at both federal and state levels, then you sir are just as incomprehensible as those that voted for the "flash" talker. Where I come from we call this "the blind leading the blind". Our newly elected president, without a valid birth record I might add, will do everything in his extreme leftist powers to help this agenda out. And that's just what these bills are, agendas, someone's or group's agenda to further their cause on patents and/or gun (ammo for the gun in this case) control. It is a LIBERTY you should be proud of and stick up for and I hope the knock on your door is first for throwing it under the bus. Maybe your well to do or had a silver spoon stuck in your mouth that you can afford these proposals to hike cost of ammo up, but for everyday Joe's like me it is one slap in the face that is probably the first of many to come. Oh, and State statutes are many "test sites" of future Federal proposals. Sickening is the word that comes to my mind when I see you type your filth.
