    My Deepest Sympathies to Illinois (Cook County) Citizens

    It seems that in the state of Illinois, Chicago and its surrounding burbs (Cook County) is trying to propose a "Violence Tax". So all of you law abiding citizens would have to pay an extra tax on the sale of firearms and ammunition. That is as ridiculous as the "Soda Tax" in NY. What the heck is going on in this country. We have got to get the progressives out.

    People have become so weak that they think they need the government go protect them from themselves. I have always said "stupid people are supposed to die". Why should the gov ernment interfere with that?

    What's happened is the stupid people of the state have kept electing the same inept overspending clowns time and time again. They are way in over their heads on pensions, healthcare costs, and bloated payrolls for all of their friends and family. Whenever Cook County comes up with a new tax the smart people take their business elsewhere. If this idiotic idea should pass I expect the same thing to happen. The day I retire will be my last day as a resident of this insane asylum called Illinois.

    Hard to have sympathy when they keep electing them.

    Ummm... Have you seen the lines to the polling places in Chicago and Cook county? Where do you think they came up with the idea for zombie movies? The (un) dead cast more votes than the live population... I think Jimmy Hoffa even votes in Cook county...
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    As we say in Illinois - vote early and vote often. Sad but true.

    Sounds more like a sales tax to me.

    If the "leaders" truly wanted to increase the costs to the violent, then they should "tax" the violent .... NOT everyone else on the presumption they'll become violent merely because they have purchases a lawful tool.

    Bring back the electric chair, have the death penalty for murder, bump to death penalty for those committing two or three violent felony crimes, and stop focusing on farcical and misguided taxation of the innocent, unaffiliated, non-violent. That would impose a proper disincentive to individuals daring to inflict violent crimes upon those around them, by permanently erasing them from our midst. Short of that, we're going to continue to have them, train them (via penitentiary "schools"), feed them, house them and release them ... to do it all over again.
