Seattle’s Guns & Ammo Tax Forces Gun Store Out Of The City

posted on January 6, 2016

Seattle’s new tax on firearms and ammunition, which places a $25 tax for every firearm and up to 5 cents for each round of ammunition sold within the city, took effect Jan. 1, prompting one owner to move his business elsewhere. “Selling firearms is no longer feasible in Seattle, so we’re moving north,” Precise Shooter store owner Sergey Solyanik told to The Seattle Times

Solyanik said Monday that he’s close to signing a lease in nearby Lynnwood. Precise Shooter has stopped selling firearms and ammunition, but will remain open to sell reloading equipment and cleaning supplies until his business license is approved for the new store. Opponents filed a notice of appeal after their lawsuit against the tax was dismissed last month. A state law prohibits cities from regulating firearms, and plaintiffs in the case say that officials are using the tax as a workaround to do something they have no authority to do.
