  • There's a constant debate over the Second Amendment, but regardless of which side you fall on, we can all agree that we want to remain as safe as possible.

    Recently, Seattle adjusted the price of ammo and firearms by implementing a tax. No one enjoys being taxed more so as you can imagine, it caused quite a stir. For those who carry and purchase firearms, the tax was viewed as an infringement upon personal safety. The issue was even taken to the judicial level by filing a lawsuit.

    Since the availability of firearms is a national problem, it comes as no surprise that what has happened in Seattle could affect the rest of the country.

    Keep reading to learn what has happened with Seattle's tax on firearms and what precedent it sets for other cities and states!

      Now, if Trump’s wall would just continue up the east coasts of California, Oregon and Washington and then Trump was to make a deal with Un to allow North Korea to use those states for target practice… The problem would be solved!!!

      The tax has proven to be a failure. Buyers just go outside Seattle to purchase guns and ammo. Taxpayers were told the tax would generate $500,000 additional a year. It has generated barely $100,000. Giant failure. Crime rate is also up significantly in Seattle.
