    just saw this on the news and it drives me nuts. lets punish legal gun owners for the actions of criminals and by criminals I mean the politicians of Chicago

    I thought it was considered polite to include a synopsis of the story, instead of simply posting a blind link.
    "Garbage from Chicago" is waaaay too broad a subject to guess at here. That could be anything.

    Chicago is so corrupt. I'm glad I left.

    I'm not sure that this Preckwinkle guy spent much time working out his tax plan:
    I have to figure that any tax that would reduce the number of guns in circulation to any measurable amount would be far to oppressive to be permitted. And of course, folks willing to shoot someone illegally are probably equally willing to dodge the tax. Once again it's the old tried-and-true punish the innocent for the acts of the guilty.

    Now, if all you were really out to do is find an excuse to raise taxes, his plan would fill the need pretty well. Facts and reason, after all, have little to do with political expediency.

    Just another way to get money out of people instead of actually dealing with the underlying violence issues

    yeag, this will work. criminals pay $500 or more on the street for one handgun, they will pay that much for 50 rounds of ammo as well......

    One thread on the subject is enough.
