Connecticut Dem Proposes Federal Tax Credit for Surrendering 'Assault Weapons'
#1
Quote:(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) has introduced a bill that would give individuals a federal tax credit for surrendering their semiautomatic weapons.
The “Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act” would amend the Internal Revenue Code to “allow a credit against tax for surrendering to authorities certain assault weapons.”

Section 25E of the bill reads: In the case of an individual who surrenders a specified assault weapon to the United States or a State or local government (or political subdivision thereof) as part of a Federal, State, or local public safety program to reduce the number of privately owned weapons, on the election of the taxpayer there shall be allowed as a credit against the tax imposed by this chapter an amount equal to $2,000.”

The bill states that the $2,000 tax credit will be allowed for the taxable year in which the weapon is surrendered and that only one credit will be permitted for each taxable year.

The weapon must be lawfully possessed.

The weapons listed in the bill are AK-47s, AR-15s, the Bushmaster XM15, the M1 Carbine, the TEC-9 and any semi-automatic rifle that has a detachable magazine.

The full list of tax-credit-eligible weapons is listed here.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

So buying a crappy Century AK with crooked sights and a twisted receiver for a couple hundred bucks could get you $2000?! Sounds like an investment opportunity and a way to get rid of the crappiest Century rifles.

A Ruger 10/22 has a detachable magazine and is semiauto. Is that now an assault rifle?

Next on the agenda: $2000 tax credit if you relinquish your 1st amendment rights to redress grievances with the government.

$2000 over the next two tax cycles, meaning you get $1000 each year. Not all at once, and only one "assault weapon"/year can be credited.

It's still a good investment.

Have always been. African Americans should know best of all that fact.

So let me get this straight. They take your money, and then offer to give a bit of it back to turn in an "assault weapon"?

Sounds like extortion to me.
