    I have mentioned on GT before that the liberals will go after ammo. This is not surprising.

    I’m glad I live in a fairly gun friendly state.

    Have been thinking the libs would be going for this. You get what you vote for and not surprising that this has taken effect in Washington. Pretty sure this wouldn’t fly where I live. Slippery slope

    Cancelled my move to WA just because of warnings from my friends who live there.

    West side of the state is pretty liberal, especially in 4 of the counties. East side of the state is God's Country, as we call it here. As CA goes, WA State follows.

    An AR 15 (with a .22 conversion kit) and loaded with Stingers or other hot .22 LR ammo would be nice in more ways than one. Easily and much more cheaply to load up on ammo with. Not only for cheap plinking, but cheaper than 5.56 and to easily truck in a few jackloads of ammo for, (to help counter ammo bans, "shortages" or taxes), and still have plenty of something to throw (or trade), if things go somewhere nasty in the proverbial handbasket.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    The .22 is good for quantity but one or two more powerful rifle calibers are also advisable.

    This is not about collecting taxes on pistols and ammo.
    It’s about kicking out gun shops and shooting ranges out of city limits.
    We’ll see how Bullseye and the others do in the next two years.
    I won’t pay the anmo tax.
    Hopefully Bellevue doesn’t follow Tacoma’s lead. Time will tell how many cities in western WA do this.

    I predict Bullseye and Welchers will open up stores in Spanaway or Lakewood and the city will lose a bit of money on this tax.

    I`ve mentioned this kind of thing coming long ago.
    First its a tax, then its a registration, then its licensing.
    Then they will stop components being shipped to reload with.
    Then comes licensing to reload ammunition. Permits for powder & primers.

    Its never going to stop until they`ve taken EVERYTHING away from us!!!
    Eventually, this poison will be nationwide!

    They keep rooting around in the tool box looking for that one golden opportunity, argument, or tragedy that can be jury rigged and manipulated like the English did that will finally tip the scales of public opinion against firearms ownership. EXACTLY like they did with the Confederate battle flag which then spread to the destruction and defacement of our monuments. As I warned and rightly predicted, that lunacy spread to other non CSA military monuments and Old Glory itself.

    With the current crop of panty waists coming of voting age and the influx of freedom hating anti gun immigrants who can't wait to vote this country into a disarmed third world pest hole, it could get "interesting" very quickly!

    Time to think about such things! The anti freedom, anti gun bleating sheep are constantly in flux and they never tire, never get discouraged at failure, and will not quit until they are happily marching, squealing and begging to the executioners block.

    Oh yes, never as a primary weapon. Just as a supplement or back up option.

    Thanks.

    As many know, hard to tell where Seattle stops and Tacoma begins. I guess Tacoma got infected with Seattle disease.

    Seattle was slapped down a few years for concealed carry restrictions that conflicted with state laws.

    So, Seattle did the tax business on ammo and I think others and the result was few if any gunshops exist there. Think Tacoma will experience the same thing. Both loosing revenue but hey....they're "woke" and "doing the right thing". Yeah, sure, like the rest of the anti gun garbage, it won't accomplish anything, won't save lives but will impede the lives of the law abiding. Don

    I always thought guns and ammo should be completely tax free, like churches and newspapers...

    Has this happened anywhere else? Be interesting to see if these kind of taxes would hold up in the USSC.
