    ...tax the shit out of the ammo.

    Tax it so high that most people can't afford to buy ammo.

    Eventually the ammo supply accross America will dry up.

    Gun carriers might think twice before "wasting" their bullets.

    Oh, and fuck the NRA.

      who shoot animals for trophies will be able to afford ammo and those who hunt to put food on their families' tables can go back to leg traps?

      I will put money on the fact that the loonies who already have a zillion years worth of stockpiled ammo have been storming the gun shops and WalMart since yesterday to stock up just in case.

      •  Of the 300 Million guns in this country... (5+ / 0-)

        ...how many of them are actually used "to put food on their families' tables"?????

        It never seems to be these true hunters who are doing the slaughtering.

        It's the other 299 millions guns that seem to be involved.

        Can we at least agree to do something about those 299 million guns?????

        •  My point exactly (0+ / 0-)

          Your tax plan would punish the few million who do hunt for food -- many for basic sustenance but not those who can afford ammo or the lunatics who have their bunkers stockpiled already and will continue to stockpile.

          No one or no law is going to retrieve those guns and that ammo.  There are over 300 million people in this country -- how many are on food stamps?  There are not 299 million guns involved in mass murders or even individual murders.
