Community Impact Assault Weapon Ammo Tax

As Las Vegas Mayor, to significantly reduce the likelihood of another mass shooting, I will lobby congress and fight for a greatly enhanced Federal Tax on the purchase of all ammunition that can be fired by a Military Style Assault Weapon.

All proceeds from that Community Impact Military Style Assault Weapons Ammo Tax would be earmarked to fund a Federal Assault Weapon Buyback Program.

Rather than being destroyed, those Buyback Assault Weapons would be delivered to the Department of Defense. DOD would then send those Military Style Assault Weapons to Ukraine in furtherance of our commitment to arm the Ukrainian Military.
