I try to stay away from simply regurgitating news headlines, that’s not the purpose of this blog. That said, some things – Gov Crap – can drastically affect those this blog truly cares about . . . shooters.
This article caught my eye in my daily read today:
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."
It’s the kind of crackpot idea way to many Republicans could sign on to because we all know “we have to do something” about gun violence.
Usual words here – call reps, raise hell, stupid idea, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Of course, it’s being proposed by Democrats . . . . so . . . . yeah.
