    Default Surcharge to buy ammuntion?

    I heard a rumor that when the State Police get the background checks for ammunition purchases going there will be a $20 surcharge for ach box of ammunition. While I tend to disbelieve things like this, we are in New York State, and I put nothing past Cuomo. Does anyone here know the truth about this?

    Second amendment on the books is about gns, not ammo. They aren't outlawing ammo, just making it even more difficult to get. Like a $10 or $20 surcharge is gonna stop someone from shooting up a school or public place. They are so disconnected from the real issues.... Mental health

    I think that denial of ammo is a denial of arms. Congress recognized that in S1132 where they amended HR 218 to include ammunition in the definition of FIREARM.
    Savage99 and John Stark like this.

    No. The Second Amendment is about ARMS, not just guns. It includes all items of the firearm system, including magazines, ammo and ammo components. It also includes edged weapons. You cannot tax a right, much less tax it out of existence.

    I just called 855-LAW-GUNS and was told the rumor about the surcharge is completely untrue.

    It appears that andy's boys got to them. No reason to make the natives restless and all that.

    Actually the the word "gun" does not appear. A gun is not an "arm" without ammunition (unless you call it a "club").

    Someone was spreading misinformation. You be the judge which party that was. If in doubt look at the armory thread.

    Either is was complete BS or someone on the hotline let the cat out of the bag a little early. I guess we will find out one way or the other.
