Using unreasonable taxes to infringe on civil rights is not a new concept. Can you say “Poll Tax”? Breitbart News previously reported that the violence tax places a five-cent tax on every bullet sold within city limits and a $25 tax on every gun. The tax was pushed by City Council president Tim Burgess and passed by the Seattle City Council on August 10, 2015. Seattlepi reports that Mike Coombs, the owner of Sodo’s Outdoor Emporium, is now watching his business decline. In addition to the $2 million loss in sales, Coombs has seen his “customer count” tumble by 32 percent during 2016. At the same time, Seattle residents are going outside city limits to buy the guns and ammunition they need.
