Expressed my opinion. According to PopVox looks like one that will probably die in Committee. (Hopefully :))

Wow, $2,000 tax credit and a HiPoint carbine is on the list! I think I would have to 'surrender' one of my toys at that point :)

" a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.". Gota love government logic. Even if it is we say it isn't so by law it isn't even though it is.

Not cool. What I'm getting from this is that they consider all of the listed guns "assault weapons", and as such, they would be made illegal if a ban were to pass. It was stated that a firearm would be considered "unsuitable for sporting use"(and therefore an assault weapon)if the military or a government agency had purchased it for use! Like the Remington 870, one of the(if not THE)most popular guns used for hunting(at least in my home state).

Buy several Hi Point Carbines at roughtly $450. Take tax credit. Buy several AR15 type rifles. WIN.

It is like when a buddy of mine took in several broken guns to a buy back and then bought a functional Glock 17 with the proceeds several years ago.

The opportunist in me wants to take advantage of this; the Libertarian in me wants nothing to do with it. The whole point of this bill is to ultimately eliminate firearms by paying people off. The gun-grabbers will do anything to remove firearms- it's pathetic.

Use the money to buy more.

I think the NRA should jump all over this. Flood the t.v. with adds letting everyone know with $200 hi points and $600 ( now) AK's know what they can look foward to. Not mention shotguns and the such. Heck i know a couple guys who would probably turn in $40000 worth of tax credit and still have plenty at home. This alone would probably bankrupt the country.

I have a basically non-functional, non-serial numbered marlin model 60. The opportunist in my would love to get a $2k tax credit for this $80 gun and go buy an FNX 45 tactical & suppressor.

I say, let them pass this ... beg them to pass this ... HELP them to pass this... then troll/ exploit/ abuse the system WITHOUT HINT OF SCRUPLE OR MERCY.

Use the profit to buy newer, better guns from American companies who will give money to fight anti-2A lawmakers' reelection.

The "progressives", as usual, have not given thought to the unintended consequences of their actions. They're practically begging to redistribute taxpayer money to increase gun ownership and support pro-2A causes and candidates.

Dean Congressman Carter,


I know you are on my side of this issue so I'll keep it short and sweet. Please oppose HR 226. I'm a strong supporter of the second amendment and don't want my tax dollars going to any federal "buy back" program designed to remove lawfully owned firearms for the citizens of the United States. In addition, this would be especially dim-witted given our current national debt and deficit. We gun owners need to “pay our fair share”.

Thank you,

Phillip ****

I believe this bill states you can only get the one tax credit for $2000 per year. I'd guess that would be to stop people from doing what you guys are suggesting. It also seems to me that for this to be effective at "stopping crime" or whatever they think(not that it ever actually would be)they would have to outlaw the guns they are buying back so you can't just go buy some more. We shouldn't get excited about BS like this, just because we think it will make us some money. It all serves the same purpose, and master.
