The landmark Pittman-Robertson Act is considered by many conservation organizations to be awildly successful” method of funding wildlife habitat management. It requires those who purchase guns, ammunition, and fishing equipment to pay excise taxes on this gear.

Now, a proposed bill, H.R. 8167, aims to undo this funding source that has effectively shepherded wildlife refuges and other public lands through nearly a century of conservation.

The “RETURN (Repealing Excise Tax on Unalienable Rights Now) our Constitutional Rights Act of 2022’’ was introduced to the House of Representatives on June 22, 2022. It proposes removing nearly all excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment, with a handful of taxes remaining but seriously capped.
The bill has 53 co-sponsors, including Rosendale from MT.

They should worry more about taxes the President wishes to impose on firearms and ammo than the one the vast majority of us wholeheartedly enjoy paying.
