Tax bullets like Tobacco & Alcohol

There may be a constitutional right to own and bear arms but there is no constitutional right to bullets. Right now you can buy 50 rounds of high impact hollow-point bullets (the type used by law enforcement) for less than the cost of a pair of sneakers. This makes no sense. We tax gasoline, cigarettes and alcohol at higher rates than deadly ammunition. A 500% tax on high-powered bullets would not harm legitimate hunters, but it may deter those intent on deadly rampages and at minimum would generate tax revenues that could be used to buy back guns from the public and help victims of gun violence.
