    Always consider the source of these sensationalized stories. There are idiotic bills created nearly every day. They have zero chance of ever becoming law but they help those who create them secure backing and money from the nutjobs who champion their cause.

    Now the anti gun liberals are going to try to starve us out now.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Was just going to post this when I saw yours so I will follow up here with what we have:

    House Reps Davis & Pacsrell tried to sneak one in last week when everyone thought they were on recess. HB3018 would impose a 20% tax on all firearm sales and a 50% tax on 'shells and cartridges:

    Proposed Federal Gun Legislation HB3018 - American Gun Owners Alliance

    ‘‘(1) Articles taxable at 20 percent:
    ‘‘(A) Pistols.
    ‘‘(B) Revolvers.
    ‘(C) Firearms (other than pistols and revolvers).
    ‘‘(D) Any lower frame or receiver for a firearm, whether for a semiautomatic pistol, rifle, or shotgun that is designed to accommodate interchangeable upper receivers.
    ‘‘(2) Articles taxable at 50 percent: Shells and cartridges.’’.
    Of course all federal agencies would be exempt.

    The progressives never rest.

    Imagine if they put all that effort towards something that would actually benefit society?

    Of course they are. It would be stupid to pay a tax to yourself.

    If hillary becomes President, I suspect taxation of guns and ammo is a program she will promote.

    If they did that, they would cease to be progressives.
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    H.R. 3018 -- Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act of 2013, proposed resolution.

    They should have called it the "Make It Tougher For Citizens to Own Arms As Is Their Right Act of 2013." If they cannot outright deny ownership to citizens, they attempt to make it more costly for folks.

    And such liberty-haters that push these sorts of proposals probably believe that violent felons will cease carrying deadly weaponry simply because ammo costs them more. Else, why call it a "violence reduction" and "safe communities" act? At worst, they'll steal more to cover the cost increases of their chosen "professions." It's not as though it'll make any community safer, beyond making it harder for the least-able citizens to exercise the RKBA. It's a constitutional sidestep act, IMO, nothing more.

    I propose: H.R. 666 -- Congress-weenie Spoken Violence Prevention and Safe Citizens Act of 2013 ... with a 10% tax (based on salary) on "nickel" words uttered by every person in Congress, and a 500% tax (based on salary) for each and every documented instance of thwarting the sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution and/or sidestep it. How dat?

    Well, NY technically made criminals of all of their own LEOs through a stunt like this one, so never underestimate the stupidity of zealous legislators...

    Like putting on an old fashioned Jonestown Kool-Aid party nationwide. A very popular liberal movie's theme song from long ago was entitled "Suicide is Painless," so it must be true.

    Never confuse illegal with immoral. Beware of those who do.

    Not too sure what's "sensationalized" about this legislation. It's pretty bad.

    House bill would boost tax on ammo by 50%, guns 20%
