Illinois: Proposed Cook County Budget Will Penalize Gun Owners By More Than Doubling
Today, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle announced a 2013 budget plan that will penalize, through taxation, all purchases of firearms and ammunition in Cook County. If adopted, this proposal would impose a tax of a nickel per bullet and $25 for each firearm purchased, ultimately amounting to a massive penalty. Cook County would be the first jurisdiction in the country to impose a per-bullet and gun tax. Based on current prices, this penalty would more than double the price of some ammunition —for example, the price of a value box of .22 LR ammunition would increase by more than 150% under this proposal! Please contact Board President Preckwinkle and the Cook County Board of Commissioners TODAY and respectfully demand that they halt their blatant attacks on the Second Amendment.
