Gunning for Economic Prosperity

Looking for something positive about the Michigan economy? Try the sales of guns and ammo.

Lori Dougovito of ABC 12 reports:
A big boost in gun and ammunition sales in the last year could amount to millions of dollars more for Michigan. Those items are taxed federally. That money is then redistributed to states.

Michigan is on track to collect more of this tax money than ever, maybe as much as $17 million, according to the DNR's budget officer.

That would be about $6 million more than last year.

"We've been here about 13 months now. Very busy," said Kirk Richardson.
