Seattle moves to pass “gun violence tax” on all weapons and ammo

This is an ‘ill-advised proposal that will impose a $25 tax on each firearm and a nickel tax on every round of ammunition sold by a retailer in Seattle.’ That’s outrageous. Hot Air is right, in the end this isn’t meant to raise revenue from taxes, it’s meant to shut down gun stores and get rid of guns. It’s a political trial balloon for the Obama Administration. And I’m not surprised that Seattle was the Progressive metropolis picked for this experiment. These people don’t get what “Shall Not Be Infringed” means in the Second Amendment – what’s more, they don’t care. In the end, this will wind up in court and these fascists will lose. The tax payers will be stuck holding the bill in yet another attempt to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gee, Seattle used to be such a nice place to live.

Obama is thrilled with this idea.

Taxing legal gun owners for the purpose of (illegal?) gun control. What's wrong with that picture?

well, it's Seattle.

Land of fruits and nuts.

when the guns are gone, it will be fun to watch the carnage in that liberal mecca.

I was just there and compared the city to New York. Difference is in New York, there are two panhandlers on every corner.

In Seattle, there are 10.

The folks that will be punished are the ones that sell ammo and guns in the city limits. Gun people are pretty good at getting around gov't control.
