    Itll just make lower class citizens unable to arm themselves.
    I love how much they mention that quote; "Gun owners have happily tolerated federal taxes for years."

    At least its just an article and not a bill, but I dont think itll take much for some lawmakers to start considering this.

    I wonder what the author would think of a tax on free speech.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Pencils.
    We need to tax pencils.
    And paper.

    There's just too much "free speech" going on.
    And it's dangerous.

    A $1000 permit required on protest signs and no signs larger than a 5x7 index card. Oh, and $1,000,000 "reporting fee" required for all news reports. We're not saying you can protest and/or report it, just saying there's a fee, a "tax" if one prefers.

    First, explain why a poll tax is racist. Then we'll talk about taxing the 2A.

    ".....happily tolerated....."? Certainly not happily. As far as tolerated goes, do we have a choice?

    Just remember, at the end of the day, "shall not be infringed" means whatever the federal government and/or five Supreme Court justices say it means. Sad, but true.

    I love the idiotic press, and they should know better, since they cover other countries, once Socialism/Communism takes over, there will be no FREE press, they are cutting their own necks off.

    What could lead a soul to believe that infringement was clear, needs to study some history.
    There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.

    We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...
