    This is effectively a redistribution from the wealthy executives and shareholders of some of our largest companies, and the customers of those companies to the employees of those companies. Basically like a tax increase on the middle and upper class and a subsidy for the lower class. Except far simpler and easier to get passed and implemented.

    The downside is that prices on some lower-end products will probably go up. But the most price-sensitive people are going to be the ones getting a raise so it should be a net gain for them.

    There is a difference between a responsible gun owner, and one that's gotten lucky...so far.
