Think about the risk for the people who push this. It makes it look like they are ready to be tough on crime. It makes the people without knowledge think (as others have typed) that this will make the gangbangers think twice about continuing their evil ways. It is also a sin tax, like tobacco and alcohol that a lot of the rightous will see as a cash grab that does not affect them.

A good trail to follow would be where does this tax windfall go? I am guessing no where near it's source, but to some pork barrell project for the guy who wrote the law.

Default bullet tax

Life really does mimic art sometimes. For instance, more than a decade ago, comic Chris Rock suggested in a stand-up routine that if bullets were made too expensive, there would be much fewer shootings. Cook County, Illinois, seems to agree, which is why that region, which Chicago occupies, is proposing a bullet tax that would help defray the costs of crime.

Chicago, the home of Da Bulls and Da Bullsh!t! The only law that has ever lessened crime in Chicago was the end of prohibition! Watch the city die; the middle class left, the rich are protected in Kevlar Towers with heliports on top and the rats and roaches own the streets!

Cities are just living graveyards...

Nothing from the Party of the Left is true or rational... from the perspective of looking out for American citizens.

Since there are no ranges or gun stores in Chicago, and it only applies to Cook County, who the bleep is going to pay it anyway? I don't believe it is a state wide support for Crime-Cago.
