Thread: States look to tax guns, ammo

  1. #11
    It appears that these politicians forgot why this is the United States of America and no longer part of the British Commonwealth.

    Here in Wisconsin the tax would already be a reality if Scott Walker was not our governor. We are lucky he won and then beat that injustice I call a recall.

    This taxing of ammo and guns is another way to make law abiding citizens pay for the lawless criminals that feed on society. We're not the problem, the lawless are the problem!

    Well, on that specific question, we should know more shortly, as there is talk circulating that a "compromise" (of the 2nd Amendment) is near agreement on universal background checks that will break the Republican filibuster. If that happens, it will be the Republican Party being every bit as much responsible for its passage as the Democrats. Just because they aren't unanimous on the issue doesn't mean that they're not as phony as the Dems in supposedly being "pro-gun." They're all in it together.

    oh, I'm sorry...I didn't realize that cigarettes and alcohol were rights guaranteed by the Constitution... Smoking and drinking have direct health effects that cost this country billions in unnecessary medical care (including higher premiums that anyone that has health insurance ends up bearing part of the cost). Taxing them never removed them from existence...it's just another way for the Govt to spend more money.
    This is exactly where the psy-op is.... private gun ownership actually produces lower crime rates in communities. the only negative effects guns have on society is when they are in the hands of criminals or so called government "officials" trying to stamp all over your civil rights.

    Link to an article in National Review on line containing, IMO, some good thinking and responses on this tax issue;

    Blues, I'm in no way implying the republicans are squeaky clean. They all look to the enemy for way too much advice. Irritating none can take a stand on principle and stick to it. My point is that it's the democrat party most often that is more then happy to govern against the will of the people and they continue to get away with it.
