Bill: California AB 1223
Author: Assembly Member Marc Levine (D-10)
Position: Strongly Opposed
Summary: Imposes a $25 tax on guns and a tax on ammunition
Marc Levine’s bill, AB 1223, will impose a $25 tax on Californians for firearms purchases, and a yet-to-be determined tax on ammunition sales - it’s literally blank, so there is no way of knowing what the actual tax will be, but Levine’s bill does reference the federal Pittman-Robertson Act, which already taxes ammunition sales at over 10%. Levine wants you to believe that he’s doing this for the public good, but of course the real reason for making it unaffordable for purchasing ammunition is that he wants to prevent you from bearing arms by pricing everyone but the state’s wealthiest residents out of their Second Amendment rights.
