Bullet and Gun tax

Just read an article about a proposed bullet tax of $.05 a bullet and $25 a gun for everyone sold in the county Chicago lies in. This is being proposed to supposably help address gun violence from gangbangers and also raise some money of which some with pay for medical bills of the ones that get shot. This, like most other gun laws only end up hurting law abiding citizens and business' like normal and will do nothing to the criminals except get some of their medical bills paid if they are shot. Always trying to focus on the guns instead of the CRIMINALS.

Official proposes bullet tax to curb Chicago crime)

    Apparently Chicago doesn't believe Obamacare will cover gangbangers shooting each other. Here I thought Chicago was home to Rahm, and populated by true believers.

    Life really does mimic art sometimes. For instance, more than a decade ago, comic Chris Rock suggested in a stand-up routine that if bullets were made too expensive, there would be much fewer shootings. Cook County, Illinois, seems to agree, which is why that region, which Chicago occupies, is proposing a bullet tax that would help defray the costs of crime.

    So who is going to collect these taxes from the gang-bangers and street thugs? I know, Mayor Rahm will stand on a street corner on the southside of Chicago with a coffee can and ask for donations.

    Don't look now people but all this is going to get worse. They can't take our guns so they are going to try and make it so expensive that we will give up. These stupid laws that are being introduced are going to be introduced across the country. As soon as one state comes up with laws and taxes like this others are going to follow. Just my opinion--jim
