Colorado Democrats Pushing 11% Excise Firearms Tax, Other Gun Controls

via ABC

Colorado Democrats are pushing several gun control bills modeled after California laws, including an 11% excise tax on gun and ammunition sales.

At a public hearing, a firearms instructor urged residents to oppose the “sin tax” on exercising Second Amendment rights.

“Join me at the Capitol tomorrow to testify against this ‘sin’ tax. Self-defense is our right and we should not be taxed an outrageous 11% to exercise our Second Amendment rights. I’ve included a screenshot below of what to select when signing up. Let’s fight this Colorado!!!” Colorado Springs firearms instructor Ana Flanell wrote.

Other proposals include an “assault weapons” ban targeting some pistols and those with threaded barrels, more restrictive concealed carry laws, and new gun-free zones.

The Secretary of State supports the bills.

If passed, Colorado would have the highest combined excise tax in the nation at over 20%, mirroring a similar law in California that critics argue infringes on constitutional rights.

Opponents are rallying to fight the proposed legislation.
