NSSF, NRA, SAF Sue Seattle over Gun, Ammo Tax


The National Shooting Sports Foundation joined the National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment Foundation, Seattle-based retailers and gun owners in filing a lawsuit today in King County Superior Court challenging Seattle’s recently approved sales tax of $25 on each firearm and five cents for each round of ammunition (two cents for .22 caliber). “The Seattle ordinance is nothing but a ‘poll tax’ on the Second Amendment and an effort to drive Seattle’s firearms retailers out of business,” said NSSF’s Larry Keane.
