    Default "Gun Tax" next ?

    This Roberts Court "tax" precedence sure opens the doors to gun registration / control doesn't it ? Think about it! It is now a constitutional action to tax anything. It would very easy to impose a retroactive "gun tax" on all firearms if the president or lawmakers wanted to....Taxation will require paperwork = Gun registration. The huge revenue $s would be icing on the cake ......The Supreme Court has spoken. It's only a matter of time now..... tick.... tick.... tick......
    I just hope it is a small tax....

    What the fuck do you care. according to you O is the lesser of two evils. So go ahead and vote for O, I mean Johnson, and this will only be the begining of the new taxes you will see over the next 4 yrs.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    In addition, Hussein and Hillary are negotiating a UN treaty that limits access to certain firearms (to be named later) as a way to circumvent the 2nd Amendment. They will screw us all eventually, if we let them.

    This is an unresearched answer, but I was thinking last night about taxing guns. I would gladly pay $10 or more to keep the ability to bear arms. In thinking that, once a government taxes, they have a hard time making that item they taxed illegal as once they receive that income, they never seem to be able to do without it. Currently, I live in Commifornia and all firearms are registered, new and old as long as it was made after 1897. I'm not a big fan of registering guns, as this is the basis by which they will have contacts to pick the guns up if they are deamed illegal. However, I'd rather have a registered weapon than no weapon at all.

    Here is why I think gun control is inevitable: Regardless of political party, nation, culture, race, religions, etc. do you think any leaders anywhere really think a highly armed population is a good thing.....? Why would any leader think that armed citizens is a good thing when those arms could be a threat to them ?
    All Leaders have the police and military so they don't need an armed citizenry to be in power. Like on many conservative issues the Republicans will give the 2nd lip service to appeal to their base. However, as in the past they have initiated and/or supported gun restrictions............Romney is an excellent example

    Good point ! Registration is what freaks out a lot of paranoid anti-government types. By and large most honest people don't mind registered guns.....If the government ever decided to take them that will be a whole new can of worms that will cause huge compliance problems here in America.

    I can understand why political leaders don't want an armed population. When the Founders gave us the 2nd Amendment, they knew that the population needed personal protection first, the lack of a standing army resulted in provisions for raising a armed militia on demand. Addtionally, the Founders knew that any government that becomes corrupt by policy or leadership, should indeed fear an armed public. Revolution is a part of every culture/ government that has ever existed. We should never give up our arms, to make it easy for those who want to dominate.

    If the leader is liked, doing his job to the acceptance of the people, he shouldn't have to be worried of an armed militia. If he or she is trying to be a facist ruler-dictator, than he would-should need to worry. I like the idea of an armed militia as it is another check and balance for the government. Wasn't the armed militia's what caused our break from England's Power? The government used to be about checks and balances, but now we have a healthcare system that was forced onto us and the majority did not even want it. We didn't want this, what is next? We need checks and balances!

    Indeed a very good post. These Marxists are a clever bunch,and are content to work there agenda slowly, if necessary, as has been the case. they are working our colleges,universitys, local and state governments, to set the tone of liberal thinking in the laws they can pass.
