The Obama administration is considering banning a type of ammunition used in one of the most popular types of rifles because it says the bullets can pierce a police officer’s protective vest when fired from a handgun.
Two individuals were caught on tape making three trips to eventually remove nearly 40 firearms – including dozens of pistols, several rifles and one shotgun, plus 1,000 rounds of ammunition.
The Executive Committee voted 12-3 on legislation to ban the delivery, sale or transfer of ammunition feeding devices of more than 10 rounds after emotional testimony.
“We’re seeing nothing. Nothing in inventory,” Bull’s Eye LLC owner Jim Stevens said.
The proposed tax angered gun-rights advocates, who predicted it would drive business from Cook County and to neighboring Indiana and Wisconsin.
The bill would impose a 2 percent sales tax on ammunition and could raise between $800,000 and $1.2 million.
