Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) is calling for significant increases in the federal excise taxes on guns and ammunition as a way of limiting gun sales in the United States.
“Increasing taxes on gun manufacturers will reduce gun and ammunition sales and bring in new federal revenue that we can use for both gun violence prevention and enforcement of existing gun laws,” Warren said in a Tweet she sent out on Saturday.
“Together, we can hold gun manufacturers accountable,” she said.
The Tweet included a link to a story in the Huffington Post about Warren’s plan.
