Funniest part of the article:

“Increasing the cost of guns won’t work, because many criminals don’t purchase new guns, and they can be borrowed or even rented in some areas,” his plan states.

Well....lemme see. If that is the actual language this guy wants to use, then he should do it. A tax on bullets. That will only affect people who do their own reloading.

I, for one, do not buy bullets. I buy cartridges.

I’m sure the mob is supporting his bid. A traffic in bullets would be quite profitable. Just like in Chicago, where an Alderman from a mafia family introduced the handgun ban.

"Borrowed" ????

Doesn't he mean STOLEN?

"Rented" ???

You mean the ATF missed out on a more lucrative way of getting those 'assault rifles' into the drug cartel's hands?

This guy must be taking cues from Sheila Jackson-Lee!

How about a tax on speaking to reduce “hate Speech?”

Criminals don't use many bullets.

Hunters and target shooters use lots of bullets.

Punish the innocent. It's the Liberal/Democrat/Socialist way.

96% no, 4% yes.

The concept that criminals do not follow laws is such a simple one, you’d think even a liberal could grasp it. Alas, I overestimate the logical reasoning skills of the left yet again.

What’s the difference between this and a poll tax?

All it would do is put legal area ammo dealers out of business, which may be what he has in mind..

In all my years selling ammo in the hardware store never once did anyone I would suspect as gangbanger material come in to buy ammunition.

“Too bad they didn’t have a third choice for ‘Are you crazy???’”

How about we tax stupid politician-wannabes every time they open their mouths?
