Connecticut State Rep. Jillian Gilchrest Wants A 50% Tax Increase on Ammunition

A Connecticut state representative is proposing a 50-percent tax increase on ammunition, breaking new ground in the gun control debate.
Freshman Democratic Rep. Jillian Gilchrest from Hartford introduced House Bill (HB) 5700, which would enshrine the tax into state law, in late January. A companion bill has been introduced in the state Senate by Democrat Will Haskell, who recently became the youngest Senator in state history at the age of 22. (RELATED: NRA Statement On Bump Fire Stock Rule)
