This is a discussion on I though "shall not be infringed" was clear within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I would love to know how they think that taxing rifles would cause less shootings. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/ar...roblem/596047/ Itll just make lower class citizens unable to arm ...

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.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
We need to tax pencils.
There's just too much "free speech" going on.
And it's dangerous.

The left hasn't met a tax they didn't like.

Too bad the government can't tax ignorance and stupidity...
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...
