  •  Lets tax the sale of guns and ammo (8+ / 0-)

    The FBI and others have said that the main perpetrators of mass gun violence are suffering from depression. Well then, lets let gun owners help pay for the solution. The Supremes have said that gun ownership is a fundamental freedom, never mind that part about a "well regulated" militia. Ok. I get it. Like abortion, case closed.

    But just because we can't restrict the right to own, doesn't mean we can't requre gun and ammo manufacturers and their customers to pay the costs associated with ownership/

    How much would a comprehensive mental health care system in this country cost? Divide that by the number of guns and bullets sold in this country and make that the associated sales tax rate.

    It's never the guns. It's always the gun owners. Ok, gun owners, carry your weight.
