By giving a tax rebate intead of a tax increase for "reducing crime"; you are essentially encouraging people to use their guns like vigilantes.
Speaking of taxes, how about dropping the taxes on my pack of cigarettes? I pay over $10 a pack.
I don't agree with taxing the hell out of guns/ammo.
I think it's insane to offer tax rebates to gun owners, many of which aren't trained. Some gun owners don't even know how to clean their guns. They
simply bought them because the big, bad government was coming after them.
I remember when all of this legislation was being drafted. On ATS you'd think the world acutually WAS going to end (unlike the 2012 stuff :lol
. . .
And where are we now? Most of the proposed bills have stalled, hell -- even NYC is looking to repeal their newly passed legislation.
Now, that doesn't mean that they'll stop trying -- it just shows that the mood and mentality of the country is on the pro-gun side. That should
count for something!
