    NRA-ILA :: Clearing Up the Rumors: The Truth About The "Gun Tax Bill"

    NRA-ILA :: Blind Alleys On The Information Superhighway

    Clearing Up the Rumors: The Truth About The "Gun Tax Bill" Friday, August 14, 2009 Over the past few months, NRA-ILA has received hundreds of e-mails warning us about "SB-2099," a bill that would supposedly require you to report all your guns on your income tax return every April 15.
    Like many rumors, there's just a grain of truth to this one. Someone's recycling an old alert, which wasn't even very accurate when it was new.
    There actually was a U.S. Senate bill with that number that would have taxed handguns -- nine years ago. It was introduced by anti-gun Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), and it would have included handguns under the National Firearms Act's tax and registration scheme. This has nothing to do with anyone's Form 1040, of course.
    Fortunately, S. 2099 disappeared without any action by the Senate, back when Bill Clinton was still in the White House. We reported about it back then, just as we report about new anti-gun bills every week. Now, it's time for gun owners to drop this old distraction and focus on the real threats at hand.

    If a bill like this ever does get passed, then all 90 million gun owners in the country should list machine guns and RPGs as their weapons of choice. And then refuse to pay the tax. THAT would give 'em something to think about...If only...
