Official proposes bullet tax to curb Chicago crime

This is the agenda of those who hates us, the ones who LEGALLY own guns. The vast majority of gun owners are responsible, safe with our weapons, put up with the all the legal garbage we put up with so we can legally own guns.

Leave it to the libtarded morons who run Chicago to think that another tax on ammunition and each gun will help curb the rampant rate of violence that is making Chicago worse than Detroit in this regard.

The criminals do not get their guns or ammunition legally so this is a really stupid idea but hey,
that is what gun hating liberals do.

What I want to say might get me in big trouble, so I better behave, for now.......

I could go on a total rant here but will turn this over to Fred form TexasFred. PatriotUSA


Official proposes bullet tax to curb Chicago crime
By TexasFred

CHICAGO (AP) – As Chicago struggles to quell gang violence that has contributed to a jump in homicides, a top elected official wants to tax the sale of every bullet and firearm – an effort even she acknowledges could spark a legal challenge.

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle will submit a budget proposal Thursday that calls for a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each firearm sold in the nation’s second-largest county, which encompasses Chicago.

Preckwinkle’s office estimates the tax will generate about $1 million a year, money that would be used for various county services including medical care for gunshot victims. Law enforcement officials would not have to pay the tax, but the office said it would apply to 40 federally licensed gun dealers in the county.

Through last week, the city reported 409 homicides this year compared to 324 during the same period in 2011. Although the violence still doesn’t approach the nearly 900 homicides a year Chicago averaged in the 1990s, officials say gang violence was largely to blame for a rash of shootings earlier this year.

Take a good look at this post my friends, read it closely; THIS is what the sheer lunacy of gun grabbing, gun hating Liberal and Democratic MORONS looks like!

In the DIM minds of the Democrats in Chicago a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each firearm sold in the Chicago area is a good thing and will be a crime stopper of sorts and will generate $1 million a year, that would be used for various county services including medical care of gunshot victims.

Well sure, TAX legal gun owners Chicago; make THEM pay for the violence that engulfs you city, sounds like a wonderful idea to me, until you consider this, the people that are committing these gang shootings, drive-by shootings, hold ups, robberies and assorted acts of violence are NOT legal gun owners that BUY their guns and ammo!

All locals have to do is go across the Cook County line to but what they want, and from Chicago it’s a very short drive across the Indiana or Wisconsin state line and it is only a matter of walking into ANY sporting goods store and buying your ammo there, if you’re a person that believes in buying your ammo.

So, that would totally negate the idea of a .05 per round tax on ammo, you see, if you plan on buying a large amount of ammo the cost of the drive, and the idea of screwing Chicago itself out of the tax money would make ME drive that short distance just on general principles.

Never buy in Crook oops Cook County. 8.25% tax is too high. I go over the County line and get the 7.25% tax instead. The same with ammo and guns.
