    The House is currently being petitioned to pass a bill that increases sales tax on firearms to include: pistols, revolvers, and other firearms including lower receivers. This would place a 20% sales tax on the fore mentioned items and place a 50% tax on ammunition "shells and cartridges". Does this have any weight? I mean, does any one here think this could actually be passed? And yea, I get it, I could always reload and get around the tax, but really, what does that do? I don't have the time, patience, or desire to reload now so why would I want to as a work around? Here is the link to the proposed bill

    The bill is garbage and will never even make it to the floor for a vote. Nothing but a dog and pony show put on by ignorant losers with nothing better to do.

    @karlvv your way with words. But seriously, this is why I posted. I wanted to get some feedback on the potential this bill has. Thank you!

    That's an interesting angle on defacto gun control I hadn't considered.

    Anything’s possible in this Kangaroo Govt we have...

    However, Trump jr is a a huge NFA nut and I’d like to think he’d heavily fight against this.

    The Donald would fuck his daughter, so what makes you think he wouldn't fuck his son too?
