    The Democrats in Hartford are at it again, advancing legislation to further impinge our Second Amendment rights.  State Democrat Rep. Jillian Gilchrest has launched a gambit to add an additional Excise Tax on ammunition.  See H.B. 5114.

    As with everything that advances from the American Left, this needs to be stopped in its tracks. The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL) is an awesome 2A organization, and they just issued an alert summarizing the dangers of this bill as follows:

    • Responsible gun owners are being penalized for the actions of criminals!
    • It makes it hard for people already struggling in our economy to train properly.
    • The Bill is on par with a sin tax.
    • Guns and ammo are ALREADY subject to an additional 11% tax on top of the CT sales tax.

    Our State Representatives need to hear from us on this issue. It needs to be stopped in Committee. CLICK HERE to e-mail your Representative. You can draft a message using the points above and it will be delivered to your Rep’s e-mail box. 

    Be simple and to the point – if we each send one, the bill will die in committee.

    We must be ever-vigilant, for we are up against an organized and coordinated movement to dissolve our individual liberties one move at a time, and transform the country into a socialist state. You can do your part by sending that e-mail.

    On the Federal level, Jim Himes has always voted against our Second Amendment rights.

    Everyone wake up and see that the democrats and a portion of republican party has accepted globalism, socialism and communism and disregard the Constitution that makes us a free nation. This direction is setting our country up to be in a state of chaos. Liberalism has blinded them to the fact that feelings based in false guilt in their hearts have overtaken the good a liberal can have that can make the world a thriving place because of their sincere, guiltless intentions but without government.

    It should be self evident that a gun w/o ammunition is useless. Therefore, a constitutional right to keep and bear arms would necessarily include the ammo for the weapon. A right is not taxable folks and cannot be separated out from the instrument that uses the ammo!
