DeLauro (D-CT) discusses SAFER Streets Act(2k tax credit to surrender scary guns)
WFSB ^

Posted on 01/31/2013 2:24:14 PM PST by matt04

United States Rep. Rosa DeLauro wants to offer tax incentives for people who agree to turn in their assault weapons, as a way of getting the weapons off the streets.

DeLauro said the SAFER Streets Act is designed to prevent guns from falling into the hands of violent criminals, getting dangerous assault weapons off the streets and to improve the state's mental health system so it properly helps those in need.

The act will give gun owners a $2,000 tax credit when they turn their weapons in. According to experts, AR-15s usually cost about $1,000.

At the news conference Thursday morning, Joe Bango, the small business owner that proposed the legislation, handed over his AR-15 to Connecticut State Police.

"There are people who are going to say they can and do hunt with an assault weapon," said Bango at a news conference, which was held at the Connecticut State Police Headquarters in Middletown. "But, it is necessary, no."

She's only concerned about law-abiding citizens having guns.

She's good with the gang-bangers and cartels having them. They're on her side.

Is it a refundable tax credit? If so, I'm all for it. Once this hoopla blows over and the market re-stabilizes, I could turn in my old AR-15 and get enough tax dollars to buy two new ones!

One thing about liberals is that they never give up, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that what they want to do doesn’t work.

Ok, so I go buy an 80% lower receiver, build a mold from that receiver. Cast my own 80% lower, buy a milling template for my bencktop drill press, mill it out the lower on my my home mill. According to the ATF, this is the firearm. I can then turn it in. Do this about once per week, do I get a $2,000 tax credit per? That would be a tax credit of $104,000. Heck, I could make money with this.

What a bunch of morons.

Joe Bango is a liberal activist, one of the speakers at Del Lauros nomination. He is not a typical AR15 owner.

Democrats and RINOS
GOD DENIERS AND CONGENITAL LIARS
ARE REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH INCITERS/
FOR FIRST YOUR MONEY THEN YOUR GUNS
AND BE DEFENSELESS WHEN CROOKS COME

Fight back the above slogan can easily be printed up as an index sized palm card and passed out to your friends and neighbors

Conservatives and supporters of the 2nd amendment the Obama regime is using the 2nd amendment argument to blame gun owners for its inability to deal with the hundreds of gangland murders and shootings commited in areas under their solid control using illegally obtained firearms.

Obama’s solution to those inner city problems is to remove those rights provided by the constitution to have and bear arms from all US citizens before any search an seizure begins in those troublesome areas which by the way will never happen.

But none of those 23 so called “reforms” and unconstitutional efforts being edicted by who some call an emperor do not deal with the following issues briefly outlined below let alone insane shooters using stolen weapons. .

They won’t because instead of creating a uniformly democratic society where every citizen has an equal voice no matter what their race or ethnicity.

Obama’s policies have divided races and ethnic groups gerrymandering congressional districts where much of this criminal activity occurs.

GOPES {G-overment O-f (the) P-eople (republican party) E-lite-S} see this issue as a 3rd rail because most of it is black on black or illegal vs illegal (Mexican) activity .

GOPES are also afraid to say that policy also increased racial tension which has resited in deaths. But again GOPES accept this because of the influence of mainline socialist media which would be accusing them of “racism” if they dare to question it.

The purpose of all this hype on guns is to keep the right and conservatives focused on what the Demo-Coms describe as issues through their propaganda arm known as the MSM (mainline socialist media) not on the problems created by the “Libs” on their road of good intentions or the socialist/fascists/communists successors to comtrol over todays Democrat party known as hyphenated Demo-Coms.

Which is the cost ,waste, and corruption of this administration which had led to a 16 trillion dollar deficit.

Not one word addresses or offers a solution about the hundreds of gangland murders and shootings using illegaly obtained mostly handguns and revolvers .

Perpetuating the general populations ignorance and using code words like “assault rifles” they’re demonizing single shot per trigger pull semi automatic rifles, used for small game hunting or target practice. That are legal in every state but made to look like their military counterpart..

Military AR’s since Viet Nam and a DOD decision ARs are really medium caliber (22.3) machine guns designed to wound not necessarilly kill which is why they are automatic and fire as many rounds that are in its magazine once the trigger is kept in the pulled position.

They replace quick kill 30 caliber semi automatic (single shot) M-1, Springfield rifles and carbines used during WWII and Korea and approved in most states for use in big game hunting.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2977901/posts NY Post pix of shooter using handgun

Obama certainly can’t critique a system created by his ilk .Ignored in his 23 edicts is that when once caught, perps get set free with lenient sentencing from “liberal” judges or sob sister plea bargain prosecution (which Obama supports for when a Illinois state senator while introducing legislation to sentence any 15 year old as an adult,(opps they could be fatherless) Obama voted “absent” with others on that roll call vote. But that leniency is promoted by the MSM,The New York Times CNN, NBC and,ABC. There’s certainly no criticism of “no snitch” mentality partcularly in areas where these shootings are rampant.

It would be nice at these rallys if conservatives would point these facts out to Obamas adoring public

$2000 for a rusty, stripped .22 that has had a wooden pistol grip nailed onto it (thus meeting the new definition for an "assault rifle"?

Cool, looks like Uncle is going to pay for a lot of weapon upgrades.

Yeah, it could work - but you might need a manufacturer's FFL to stay out of federal prison. You know how BATFE is when it comes to re-interpreting their own regulations, including those concerning home-built firearms.

I suspect they'll put some sort of cap on the credit to prevent us bitter clingers from making fools of them.

In Connecticut He may get a $2000.00 dollar Credit but he’ll have to give a percentage back to the State for the next years income tax.

Government gives and the government takes away.
