Gun Owners Generated Nearly $1 Billion For Wildlife Conservation Last Year
Through the taxes on the sale of guns, ammunition, hunting/fishing licenses, and archery equipment, nearly $1 billion was raised to go towards wildlife conservation in 2012 according to TheBlaze.com.
Much of the revenue came from strong gun sales in the previous year. Part of the tax on the sale of firearms is earmarked for conservation efforts.
