Bill's sponsor would ban all guns (except military & his armed guards)

A recent post at Americans for Tax Reform outlines how a new bill in the United States Congress (HR 5103) severely raises taxes on guns and ammo — and the bill’s sponsor would love to “outlaw [guns] altogether.”

The bill, H.R. 5103, does the following:

-Doubles the federal excise tax on pistols and revolvers, from 10 percent to 20 percent.

-Nearly doubles the federal excise tax on shotguns and rifles, raising it from 11 percent up to 20 percent.

-Nearly quintuples the federal excise tax on ammunition, raising it from 11 percent up to 50 percent.

The bill is sponsored by Chicago-area Congressman Danny Davis (D-Ill.) and has nine co-sponsors, all Democrats.

In this interview, the Davis’s first words of explanation regarding this horrific tax increase are an admission that he’s simply trying to punish gun owners.

I think the whole idea is to make it… more difficult for individuals are are going to use these weapons. If they’re going to use them, then at least they could pay more to do so.

Wow. What an elitist jerk. In other words, you’ve got to be rich and/or have armed guards (as he is/does) in order to exercise the innate right of self-defense.

Here’s another telling excerpt from the interview:

Kerry Picket, Sirius XM Patriot: “Now some would argue that then guns and ammunition would only be available to those with money, those who are wealthy. And that those who are in the lower classes as far as financial terms are concerned would not be able to afford such weapons. Tell me about that.”

Congressman Danny Davis (D-Ill.): “Well I would be just as pleased if neither group were able to get them [guns]. So what I am saying is it doesn’t pose an issue for me because I would like to outlaw them altogether. I am saying I would like to make it where nobody except military personnel would ever have access to these weapons. So it wouldn’t bother me that one category of people couldn’t get them even if the other one was willing to pay the high price for them. Then we use that money for services that are needed and people could make use of them.”

Picket: “So rich people only could own firearms?”

Congressman Davis: “So if rich people could only get firearms then only rich people would be able to pay the price. And if that could prevent some people from getting them, I would want to prevent all people from getting them. But if rich people were willing, and would continue to pay the high price then I’d be happy that we kept the other group from getting them.”

Folks, please contact your Representatives in Congress and urge them to oppose this nonsense.


Well, isn't this special !

I have long predicted that because confiscation would be too steep a hill to climb, that the Dems / commies would go this way. And, " Shazam " , here it is !! Yeah, I know. It has not passed yet. It should be difficult to pass in an election year. And most will think Trump will veto it if it gets to him. I just hope this causes more Democrats / Communists to be defeated this fall !!

So how does this bill affect gang-bangers who get their guns by stealing them?

The same question was asked when they banned the cheap "Saturday Night Specials". Answer: Yes.

Figures. The only solution a Democrat from Illinois knows is a tax increase.

So, 80% of these federal taxes go to the states. Ideally to Illinois. In a perfect world, to the City of Chicago.

" The black market will grow to meet the demand. "

My first thought as well.
