House Democrats Propose 10% Tax On Guns To Fund Gun Buyback Programs…
#1
Quote:Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) and 18 other House Democrats have proposed legislation that would impose a 10 percent tax on concealable firearms and use this revenue to fund federal grants for gun buyback programs.

“For far too long we have watched gun violence shatter the lives of thousands of families every year, and it is time to stand up and protect our children and our communities,” Sanchez said Thursday.

“It is time to give our law enforcement agencies all the necessary resources to prevent gun violence, and that starts by funding anti-violence campaigns, gun safety campaigns and firearms buyback programs,” she said. “The Firearm Safety and Buyback Grant Act is a positive first step toward getting unwanted guns off the street and preventing gun violence from ripping apart another family.”

Under her bill, H.R. 793, the 10 percent tax would be applied to concealable guns as they are now defined in U.S. law. The tax would be paid by the seller of these weapons, though the tax would not be collected on concealable guns bought by federal, state or local governments.

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

Another good reason we should all jump for joy at the proposal of mandatory FFL transfers for long gun purchases.

Helping make the world "safer" by paying "a little more" for guns should be everyone's civic and moral duty! Right?

Something else that the various manufacturers can get pissed about and withhold their products from governmental agencies. Doesn't matter for the next couple of years anyway, the Reps won't let it get to the floor for a vote.

Instead of punishing law abiding citizens, why don't they just add a $100 fine to the list of court and legal fees of those convicted of violent crimes? I'm not saying these criminals would actually pay the fee (because a lot of them all ready don't pay the current court and legal fees), but it is better than butt raping law abiding citizens.....again.

But you're being logical and it wouldn't keep people from lawfully owning firearms.

Yup and that's what it really boils down to. They have admitted as much, one of their goals is to just make firearm ownership too expensive. With the current prices of guns and ammo I'd say they are getting pretty damn close.
The law? The law is a human institution...
