Today, the Cook County Board of Commissioners held a Special Board###Meeting and approved###the misguided and onerous tax on firearms###purchased###in Cook County (previously reported on###here). ### This procedural move put the vote a week earlier than scheduled, as it was supposed to take place next week on November 16.### The original proposal was amended to remove the ammunition sales tax, but the ill-advised $25 firearm tax remains as part of the final 2013 budget.###### Your###county###commissioners failed to stand up for your constitutional rights, ignored your voice, and once again placed the blame and burden of crime on law-abiding citizens.### With their vote today, the Cook County Commissioners have decided to continue a failed policy of passing illegitimate and ineffective ordinances in order to unfairly burden honest citizens and drive lawful businesses out of Cook County.
