IL Congressman introduces tax on guns, ammo

Illinois Congressman Danny Davis says he’ll introduce legislation to increase the federal tax on guns and ammunition.

The measure would double the federal excise tax on guns and impose a fifty percent excise tax on ammunition. It’s currently taxed at eleven percent.

The tax revenue would support gun violence prevention.

The proposal is supported by gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy.
