Posted on 08/26/2013 7:41:53 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Representative Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) are sponsoring legislation which amends the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to include a 20 percent tax on handguns--"pistols [and] revolvers"--as well as a 50 percent tax on "shells and cartridges." The bill is H.R. 3018 and it is titled the "Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act of 2013."

How about a 500 percent tax on idiot politicians.
Kill the bill.
Charge these idiots with Treason. Convict them. Hang them.
I believe a tax targeted specifically at guns would be an “infringement”, and why it would be unconstitutional. But Maybe we should all buy yet ANOTHER gun before they do it, just to be safe... ;-)
The bill is H.R. 3018 and it is titled the “Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act of 2013.”
We need a damned amendment to stop people from giving “Public Relations Friendly Titles” to legislation...
Sure, all the crooks stealing guns and selling them on the black market will pony up that tax.
They’d better start taxing tar & feathers!
and more ammo, if you can find it
Here we go again. Penalize with heavy taxes the law abiding citizen who actually purchases guns and ammunition. Contrast that with the criminal who steals guns and ammo and therefore pays no tax. Guess which one is responsible for the violence?
Best Idea Of The Day!
The public servants are violating our Second Amendment rights again.
How about a 500% tax on all campaign contributions? Electing lying politicians who want to take away our Constitutional rights is the biggest danger our nation faces.
Since we have no one in Washington, with the exception of three, this then amounts to taxation without representation.
I’ve a great idea. Let’s revolt against these knights appointed by King Barry. They may night be arrayed like lobsters of old, but they eat enough of them.
Keep your powder dry and don’t waste a musket ball.
Obammy will tax the church next
Here's Danny boy
That’s what rope is for
Use of a stolen weapon in the commission of a crime carries a 20 year mandatory sentence with no possibility of parole.
No way in hell the liberals will ever let it pass. Come to think of it, I'd pay a 20% tax on guns if it would pass!

Does anyone have any doubts that at least for a few years until the “people” begin again to forget the cost of Freedom that ALL efforts to kill the Constitution will come to a screeching halt because traitors and tyrants will finally get it. The founding fathers never supposed a cowardly person would have the privilege of basking in the protections of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution while attempting to destroy the freedom and liberty they provide, without paying the ultimate price for treason.
King George would have been proud. Statists.
The “Let Poor People Use Sticks to Defend Themselves Act.”
Hang. Them. All.
They are unfit to live in a free society.

I don't object to hanging anti-Americans, though I think it might be worth our while to think about shipping them to Cuba. Remember the Mariel boat people of the 1980s? Why not return the favor and send Cuba our worst of the worst? We could put them in small, leaky row boats, give them compasses and maps, and tell them to row for all they're worth.
Sounds like a poll tax
The names of two more idiots to add to the Enemies of Freedom List.
Is there STILL an ammo shortage going on? I assumed that went away.
“I believe a tax targeted specifically at guns would be an infringement, and why it would be unconstitutional”
Why would you think that. Look at the cigarette, alcohol, and gasoline taxes we have. Diesel fuel is especially interesting as there is a hefty tax on it even though it is identical to heating oil which has no tax. They put a different color dye in each one and if you put heating oil in your vehicle and you are found out, it is nearly a felony.
If you can’t kill an amendment tax it to death it’s the democrat way.
Free 0bamaguns for “his people”!
Offer an amendment calling for a 20 percent tax on abortions.
Then their comrades will slap a 50% tax on rope.
Criminals steal their guns morons!
These people should be shot for subverting the Constitution.
the power to tax is the power to destroy.
we destroyed healthcare.
we destroyed individualism with wealfare.
at this rate they might as well make lottery ticket purchases mandatory.
20% tax on sex toys, 50% tax on E.D. medications, 20% tax on hoodies, 20% tax on Organic food, 20% tax on Prius, Chevy Volts, hybrid cars, 25% tax on Birkenstock sandals, 30% tax on Patchouli...
Just being silly
I don’t know, where I live the prices went up but I didn’t notice a shortage in some stores. Fear of a 50% tax on ammo will bring another buying frenzy and shortage.
There must be 1000 bills per Congress *just* like this one.
It’s always been about raping those who can pay a little. Those politicians don’t give a damn who gets killed, who is a victim, who protects themselves or doesn’t. It’s the money.It will never be enough until the people actually do something about it. Rob those who can pay to buy the votes of the stupid and the entitlement crowd.
It is time to do just that.
I doubt if it will go anywhere NOW, but what bothers me is that there are so many fools like this elected to office someday these bills could go somewhere.
I don’t know why they even bother with a bill .... just tell the IRS to write another regulation .... that’s what Obama’s been doing with Obamacare ... just say it’s part of ‘health care’.
If the poll tax infringes on the right to vote, why do these taxes not infringe the right to bear arms?????
The Left is Evil
My thought exactly!
Why would you think that. Look at the cigarette, alcohol, and gasoline taxes we have.
Really, I’m surprised it took this long for one of them to try this. Knowing they could never ban or take the guns away it was always easier just to price them out of existence.
That would be a most blatant Infringement.
Someone should arrest these anti-Constitution clowns. Didn’t these fools take an oath to defend the Constitution?????
