California Legislators Approve Significant Tax on Firearms, Setting a New Precedent

California's Senate passes an 11-percent tax on firearms and ammo, aiming to fund school safety and gun violence prevention. Critics argue it's a tax on constitutional rights.

California’s Senate has approved a new tax on firearms and ammunition, which could make guns more expensive in the state compared to others.

The proposed 11-percent tax would match the highest federal tax on firearms. The revenue from this tax is intended for school safety and gun violence prevention programs.

While some support the tax for safety reasons, critics argue it infringes on constitutional rights.

The fate of the legislation lies with Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has until October 14 to make a decision.
