Chicago gun tax

"CHICAGO, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The following is a statement by Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director, Richard
Pearson, regarding Cook County's proposed tax on firearms and ammunition.
"Today the president of the Cook County Board announced another in a long string of schemes to punish law-abiding firearm owners and firearm dealers. In the past, the county board has tried banning firearms and heaping all sorts of red tape on firearm owners and dealers - all in an attempt to discourage county citizens from exercising their 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. This latest proposal, a tax on firearms and ammunition, will raise very little revenue and do nothing to stem the violent crime that Cook County has become famous for.
"As with the county board's past gun control schemes, this firearm and ammunition tax is just a smokescreen designed to obscure the fallout from ineffective government. Estimates are that about 90% of those people who commit murders in Cook County have previous criminal records. Likewise, estimates indicate that about 75% of murder victims have criminal records as well. These numbers are an indictment of the Cook County courts and the county's correctional system. It's clear that the county cannot deter criminal activity and cannot rehabilitate the criminals that do end up incarcerated. Regardless of what the county board would have us believe, the problem of crime and punishment in Cook County is not the fault of law-abiding hunters and sportsmen."

Can obama pay off the deficit buy taxing all americans that own guns ?
With about 350,000 guns in the hands of citizens a tax of $500.00 per gun
per year could pay off the deficit in no time. The supreme court said taxing
anything is constitutional in the obamacare case and this tax would hold up
under that ruling. Just think of all the jobs that would create within the BATF
and IRS. Unemployment would drop as new agents were hired to collect all
the forms from gun shops and gun shows. Then there are the enforcement
officers (swat) that will visit gun owners and audit indivduals to make shure
they pay thier fair share. Lots of new jobs. Lots of new revenue.
Best Regards
Tom.

Cashless society, debit, credit cards or checks. Banks have to report all tranactions to the IRS. Everybody pays thier fair share, its the patriotic thing to do. Outlaw cash. No politician would oppose such a law.

Then the voter picture ID question will be moot because everyone will have to carry a government ID card, or an implanted microchip. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microchip_implant_ (animal)

    And your source for this - other than CBS news?

    The various states now issue ID cards, because even they know they have to require ID for some things, and not everybody can pass a driver's test. You might want to look into that. -- pyotr Go not to the Net for answers, for it will tell you Yes and no. And you are a bloody fool, only an ignorant cretin would even ask the question, forty two, 47, the second door, and how many blonde lawyers does it take to change a lightbulb.

Damnit, will everyone -please- learn to discern between debts and deficits?

Nasty. Look at all the new IRS agents who will be hired to enforce Obamacare, with hooks into all your bank accounts.
