That is one of the arguments I always use against gun legislation.
What are they going to do to make up the missing revenue when we are already this far behind budget? Average cost for a gun is around $600 (somewhere
between the $200 Jimenez and the $1000 Kimber, lol). Not to mention the $15 background check fee, the $115 CCW permit, and all the taxes on ammo
Can they really afford to lose a few billion dollars in taxes/revenue right now?
If the economy was better, would we even see all this gun crime?
Shouldn't we be fixing the public mentality, economy, and over-all happiness of the general public before we go after the guns?
I mean, would a happy populace be this violent of a populace?
