Today a bill was filed in the Illinois house to end the Cook County Ammunition tax and Cook County Violence tax which are illegal infringements on the law abiding gun owner.  This bill is called HB4348 and was filed by Rep. Jerry Costello.

The synopsis of the proposed bill is as follows:

Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that a unit of local government, including a home rule unit, may not impose any tax, fee, or other assessment other than the normal sales tax rate for goods, on any firearms, firearm attachments, or firearm ammunition. Provides that the provisions of any ordinance or resolution on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act by any municipal or county government that imposes any tax, fee, or other assessment other than the normal sales tax rate for goods are invalid and all those existing ordinances and resolutions are void.

Jerry Costello (D) is A+ rated by the NRA.

  1. I am not sure you can kick your neighbor in the face. Infact I am pretty sure that you can not 🙂

    Fots, the bill has not passed. If passed then the violence tax will be gone. However for now, if you shop in cook county you will still have to pay the $25 fee for every firearm you purchase.
