Nevada: Hearing on Anti-Gun Legislation Tomorrow
Posted on April 8, 2013
Assembly Bill 234, introduced by Assemblyman William Horne (D-34), is an all-out attack on the Second Amendment for imposing an excise tax on every Nevada firearms dealer who sells firearms or ammunition in the state. Dealers will be required to charge a $25 tax on every firearm and 2 cents on each round of ammunition sold! The extremist anti-gun authors of AB 234 are seeking to punish the exercise of a specific constitutional right in order to fund state mental health and crime victimization programs with this new tax. While the NRA supports reasonable steps to fix the broken mental health system in our country, singling out law-abiding gun owners with a gun and ammo tax is NOT the way to achieve this goal.
