Not exactly taxation, but if you look at the AW ban and import ban, if you buy prebans, you are paying roughly double the cost a NEW postban model. Then if you consider the MG bans, well, then it just gets silly at well over 10X the market value of a new MG, assuming it was legal to buy a post sample from you local FFL... More crap to blame on the feds.

Around here? 54% for importation taxes and then the local shit [:(] So at least 70% Then the profit of the dealer... NsB

They forgot NICS fees, which adds on an addition $5-8 for each transaction. 11% Federal Excise Tax 6% State Sales Tax 0.5% County Sales Tax (1.5% in Escambia) $200 every 3 Years (FFL Fees) and so on... The actual added cost is much more than they estimate due to laws which require lisences, expensive safes, etc...

Not to Hijack, but consider how much of your daily life is "taxed" by the guberment. Excise tax, property tax, gas tax, road tolls, income tax, sales tax.etc........AND REMEMBER------> BEER!....some states more than others of course.
