Alaskans are wired a specific way. We don't like taxes. We don't like lines. We like open spaces. We do our own thing. We generally do not follow the herds. (dipnetters and RR red salmon fishers notwithstanding)
However, it has come to my attention that several states are working to enact a 6 cent per shell ammunition tax. This is happening in many of the more urban states. Such an Idea has a number of people who are in the know buying lots of ammo.
We are not just talking boxes but cases and cases. This tax is extremely prohibitive for those entering the sport. Rather than trying to stop the hunters and shooters who are older the gun control prop machine seeks to bar or prohibit new shooters and plinkers. This would be a $30.00 per brick(500 rounds) tax on 22lr ammo.
This will drive lots of people to reload. However, it is hard to reload 22lr.
Thus there is a major run on all 22lr.
I know that I am also contributing to the mad rush but I feel that if the information is out there we can take steps to mobilize and talk our gov. The only open pro gun gov out there to take several steps to prohibit ammo taxes and to continue our policies. I wouldn't mind Sarah making full auto weapons legal as in Nevada. I know that you can own them with Class III transfer but I know that several Western states are working to make sure that their constitutions prohibit any gun control mandates(AZ).
