I just purchased another firearm the other day and when asked for the cash it was $100 higher than anticipated. Now I know what you're all going to say..."We all have to pay sales tax etc" . I know this, I've been paying taxes all my life just like the rest of you. It's just that it keeps getting higher and higher. It's up to 10% now here in Mobile Co. I think our governments have forgotten their history lessons. In particular the lesson taught to the Brits in 1773. Now I'm not saying you should all dump your guns into Boston Harbor, but some sort of protest/statement would seem to be in order. I recently read a short poem/lymeric that I thought was funny untill I realized just how true it was. I'll post it below. This trying to grab our guns and tax us to death has to stop. Did ya'll read about the national guard drills to practice home entry and firearm confiscation??? Look at the Handgun owners of America sight.

At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of

In the words of the (in)famous Riley, "What a revoltin' development this is."

Oh, and there's a Denver "Head Tax" for the privilege of being a non-resident working in Denver. And I can't vote in city elections, or voice ire at City Council Meetings.

Taxation without representation, plain and simple.

General ire topics fit at APS, but we're supposed to deal with firearms issues only.
