Potential Ammo Tax Prompts Spike In Sales

SPRINGFIELD - A potential ammo tax getting attention in Springfield is driving up ammo sales across the area.

Several gun stores say they've seen a spike in sales since the two percent ammo tax proposal was brought up.

The proposal would levy a two percent tax on live ammo.  That would equal about one penny for each bullet.

The expected $1.2 million raised from the tax would go to trauma centers in high crime areas across the state.
