Rep Wants To Know How Much Ammo Someone Really Needs, People’s Answers Are Brilliant


Connecticut state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest is making headlines over her radical ammunition tax proposal.

The bill, HB-5700, would see a 50 percent tax slapped on ammo sales for no other reason than to make it harder to purchase. As Gilchrest imagines, it would work the same way prohibitive cigarette taxes do.

Gilchrest. a Democrat, uploaded a video of herself promoting the bill to Twitter, and took a smug swipe at citizens voicing their concerns over ammunition purchased for self-defense. 

“I’m hearing push back about the need to protect one’s home,” Gilchrest wrote. “But how much ammunition does someone really need to do that?”

Spoken like a true authoritarian.
