OK, I have heard from several independent (READ - not related) sources that O plans on a HUGE excise tax (up to 500%) on Firearms and Ammunition.
You can't believe everything you read on the net, and I could not find anything even close to this on O's website.
Given the glorious way that our government makes laws, and my special favorite of attaching a completely unrelated item to a bill on it's journey to becoming a law, how likely is this.
As an example;
Immigration reform. A bill gets written that is a strong solid measure to stop the flood of border jumpers, rounding up the ones we have and shipping them back to hence they came. Both sides of the party lines are all for it.
But wait, at the end there is a "by the way...increase the federal excise tax on all ammunition and firearm sales to 500%, Military, Law Enforcement and other government agencies will be exempt.
Short, simple, and one line stuffed at the end.
Do we have enough people in the houses to catch it, bring it to the public eye, or stop it?
Do you honestly think that this type of "Tax it to death" will happen?
