Nearby City of Seattle is legally permitted to tax guns and ammunition in a recently created “gun violence tax,” a judge ruled this week.
King County Superior Court Judge Palmer Robinson ruled in favor of the City of Seattle this week and against the National Rifle Association (NRA), the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Second Amendment Foundation, and others who claimed the city did not have the right to pass the law.
The tax places a $25 surcharge on gun sales and $0.05 charge on every round of ammunition sold that is larger than .22 caliber. Smaller rounds are taxed at a $0.02 per round rate.
The tax is expected to raise between $300,000 to $500,000 in revenue that will be earmarked for anti-violence education.
The law will take effect on Jan. 1.
