Proposed NY law - two reloads every 90 days..

This is the kind of crap I'm talking about when trying to explain why I keep 'too much' ammo and reloading components on hand. Onerous legislation proposed in new york that would allow even 'authorized gun owners' to purchase 'no more than twice the amount of the capacity of the weapon every 90 days'.

So if you have a ny-legal 10-round glock, you could buy one 20-round box of ammo every three months. If you have a typical revolver, you can buy 12 rounds every three months. If you own a double-barrel shotgun, you can buy four shotshells every three months. Some people call me paranoid. I call those people oblivious.

Should have clarified in the OP - this particular story is a couple years old, but I came across it recently and it seemed worth posting as an example and reminder that this kind of crap is tried and tried again; hence the factoring in of political hostility into my thinking. There have been proposed (some passed, many thankfully not) laws to require owners to either provide purchase receipts or other proof of ownership for magazines or turn them in (illinois, probably 4-5 years ago iirc), proposed bans on "ultracompact" (ie, ccw-friendly) handguns, taxes of $26 on a typical 525-round 22lr bulk pack, and numerous other similar silliness.

If there were repeated proposed limits like this on socks, gasoline, oil filters, inkpens, whatever, it would seem prudent to keep inordinate amounts of those things on hand as well.

The .05 tax on ammunition is now in force in Cook County, IL. My Friend who lives in Illinois, but not Cook County, was floored when a cashier at a Wal-Mart in good old Cook rang up $78.00 for a 500 round brick of .22's. Getting a CCW license was also a very fun experience for him.

Really... I didn't remember that that one had actually passed. So basically a 100% tax on .22 shells if you're buying low- to medium-priced stuff.

Yep, it's fact. His CCW license cost him roughly $600.00. Now their talking a "Shooter's Fee" in addition to a Hunting License. If you don't hunt, you'll still need it to use a range.

Calling Illinois "Governed" is being much too generous. Oppressed by criminal's would be more correct. Prior Governor's, Treasurer's, County Sherriff's, State's Attorney's, and Judges from Illinois all know what the inside of a Federal Prison look's like. Chicago is a bankrupt War Zone. The rest of the State get's taxed to support handout's that politicians used to get elected. The smartest move I ever made was to move North.
