Colorado: Guns & Ammo Excise Tax to be Heard in Senate Finance Committee Today

Gun Rights

Today, May 4th, the Senate Finance Committee will hear House Bill 24-1349, the guns & ammo excise tax. Please contact members of the committee NOW and urge them to OPPOSE this bill by using the Take Action button below. We also encourage you to submit testimony though the General Assembly page here.

HB 24-1349 creates an 9% excise tax on the sale of all firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition in the state. If passed, the tax will be on the ballot for voter approval this Fall. Firearms and ammunition are already subject to an 11% federal excise tax through the Pittman-Robertson Act, along with a variety of other state and local taxes and fees. California is the only other state to enact similar legislation. This tax should be seen as nothing more than an attack on the Second Amendment and those who exercise their rights under it.
