Cook County Gun & Ammo Tax is FINALLY gone! We won!
In 2012, the Cook County board passed a $25 per handgun tax, supposedly to “combat gun violence.“ Two years later, they added a five cent per round ammunition tax on centerfire ammunition, and a one cent per round tax on rim fire ammunition. We (Maxon Shooter's Supplies) joined a Maxon customer and a down-state gun rights group to fight this tax in court in November of 2015.
This unlawful tax painted law-abiding gun owners and ammo buyers as responsible for the carnage created by the criminal violence of others. You can't do that.
What happens now?
We will no longer collect Cook County Gun or Ammo tax!
AS A THANK YOU TO OUR CUSTOMERS, NOW THROUGH THE END OF OCTOBER, OR UNTIL THE COUNTY PASSES ANOTHER TAX ORDINANCE, TAKE $25 OFF THE PRICE OF ANY FIREARM IN THE SHOP AND $.05 PER CENTERFIRE AND $0.01 PER RIMFIRE ROUND OFF ALL AMMO!
