Gun Taxation

I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. Our nation’s founders knew all to well what happens when free men can no longer be armed. They loose their freedoms. And the 2nd Amendment was put in place to assure that our free republic could be kept.

But we have those that hate our freedoms. They constantly seek to redefine what our founders wrote. Making unjust claim after claim. Attempting to legislate our freedoms away one by one. And they are succeeding.

That 2nd Amendment keeps coming up. The progressive hate it the most. An armed citizenry can abolish a government, by force, if it becomes a destructive to the liberties it was ordained to protect.

So how does the progressive liberal deal with such an issue? They turn to their favored weapon. Taxation. If they cannot outlaw guns, they will tax them out of existence.

Taxation only has two functions. The first is to raise revenue. And the second is to control behavior. We see this used more and more by the liberal agenda. From taxes on candy, soda pop, tobacco. To the speed and red light cameras that are springing up everywhere in our nation.

Now there are those taking the advise that Hillary Clinton gave back in 1993. She purposed that instead of outlawing gun ownership, which violates the Constitution. That there be steep taxes placed on firearms and fees on gun dealers instead.

The Emerald City, Seattle WA, was the first to enact taxation as a means of gun control. Imposing a $25 tax on all guns in the city. And imposing a tax of 2-5 cents on every round of ammunition. This tax went into effect at the first of the year. It has already caused at least one gun dealer to leave the city.

And earlier this month the Governor of the US Territory of the Northern Marian Islands announced their new gun tax law that went into effect. It imposes a $1000 tax on guns. And the governor stated how it should be the “role model” for all states.

Lastly, we have Cook County, IL. The home of Chicago, and one of the most corrupt jurisdictions in the Union. Has also passed a taxation on guns and ammunition similar to that passed by the City of Seattle. Cook County’s tax goes into effect at the first of June.

These will may be the first to walk down this path. But they will not be the last. The liberal agenda calls for an unarmed citizenry. And since it cannot be enacted by banning guns due to the Constitution. It can be circumvented in the way of taxes. Making guns unaffordable to the general population of law abiding citizens.

The Foundation

On Wednesday, the 14th of October, the next step in the foundation of our nation’s collapse was laid. The Department of Justice created a new division to combat Domestic Terrorism.

The sound of such a division being created might be a good thing. But if one looks closely at what this group is going to combat the true nature of it becomes apparent. The Domestic Terrorism Counsel, is going to look into such actions as “anti-government views, racism, bigotry and anarchy, and other despicable beliefs” according to the Assistant Attorney General John Carlin.

Although I am not for racism or bigotry and anarchy. These are indeed terrible things. The other two categories raise up warning flags greater than the first passage of the Patriot Act which enabled our government to spy on US Citizens without a warrant.

The Department of Justice, now has the self appointed power and authority to investigate and prosecute anyone having anti-government views and the undefined despicable beliefs. Is that a belief in a Creator God who says we must live a certain way or face the Judgement of sin? Maybe, maybe not.

But now if you have anti-government views, like every red blooded Tea Party member. You can now face criminal prosecution because you are anti-government. And with the Patriot Act to back them up. The proof is in your phone records, your internet activity and everything else you do.

We are now just one step away from building the political prisons on top of the foundation blocks from the IRS, Patriot Act and the Department of (in)Justice. But of course it can’t happen here.
