Congress just proposed a bill that would impose a 20% tax on sale of firearms and a 50% tax on sale of cartridges and shells! Tell Congress NO!

The $200 NFA tax goes up to $500, and the $5 tax for AOWs and other qualified items goes up to $100.
Which obviously makes sense, because the people submitting to a rigorous BATFE background check and waiting 6-12 months for their paperwork to legally purchase their extra-fun bits over the counter, are the ones shooting up schools, churches, and crowds.

uh, wrong.

Also, it sure looks like it adds AR pistols to the NFA list. They want to have your AR pistol now require a $500 tax stamp, BATFE approval and registration, and a 6+ month waiting period.

(c) Certain Semiautomatic Pistols Chambered For Cartridges Treated As Firearms.—The first sentence of section 5845(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 is amended—
(1) by striking “and” before “(8)”;
(2) by striking “device.” and inserting “device, and”; and
(3) by adding at the end the following: “(9) a semiautomatic pistol chambered for cartridges commonly considered rifle rounds, configured with receivers commonly associated with rifles and capable of accepting detachable magazines.”.

  1. The police do NOT “have a duty” to protect you. “The Supreme Court has made it clear . . . A police officer can let the public take the risk, take [the risk] upon himself or put it on the individual who brings the danger in the first place. The police can and HAVE stand back and watch you be murdered and they are perfectly within “the rules”. That’s what law enforcement is for — to protect the community(the government). They have to protect themselves [first] to do that.” http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/justices-rule-police-do-not-have-a-constitutional-duty-to-protect.html
    If “they” take your Means of self-defense then “they” TAKE ON
    (1) the burden of protecting every person 24/7
    (2) the FULL FINANCIAL RESTITUTION and Medical Bills of ANY person they fail to protect.
    (3) Replacement Repair and Pain & Suffering for ANY loss due to their failure to stop every burgler, thief, etc.

  2. There has never been a government that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS.
    Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS.
    Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms.
    The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D.
    The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS.
    The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS’ GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it’s “rights” up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?! (Rome, Egypt, Israel,etc)
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Politician. But THEY would LOVE to shut YOU up, hence the FIRST Amendment.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it’s army’s/soldier’s “RIGHT” to “Keep and BEAR ARMS” because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It’s own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
    The Second Amendment was written for the People, like the other 9 Amendments in the Bill of Rights. This was confirmed by the SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller decision, where they stated that the “People” in the Second Amendment were the same “People” that are mentioned in the First and Fourth Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment clearly guarantees the “right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, and certainly not “the Militia”.
    Why would “the Militia”, a type of army manned by citizen-soldiers as opposed to full-time “regulars”, need a constitutional amendment to guarantee they have the right “to keep and bear arms”?
    Is there any specific statement anywhere in the Constitution that the army Congress is empowered to raise has the “right to keep and bear arms”?
    Of course not. …………. That is assumed.
    “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” — Thomas Jefferson
    It is implicit in the nature of all kinds of armies —- be they militia or regulars, volunteer, conscripted, or mercenary — to be armed.
    They are all “armed forces”.
    They all “bear arms”.
    They all carry guns.
    That is what they do.
    It certainly no more requires an amendment to the Constitution to state that “the Militia” has the RKBA , than a specific statement that the army Congress is empowered to raise may be manned by armed troops.

  3. The assault on American gun rights is full on. We now have no choice but to resist in any way possible. Lock and load. ( figuratively speaking.)

  4. the only reason the govt allows coward gun owners to have guns is cause they know they will never use them against the govt WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON FOR THE 2nd amendment. gun owners worship tax parasite coward cops

    • That made absolutely no sense at all. The right to self preservation is not something that is granted or “allowed” by someone else. What do you consider to be a means of defending yourself and protecting your loved ones that would not be “cowardly”? How does owning a gun make someone a coward btw? How is that even logical? The right to bear arms is not something that hinges on the 2nd amendment. It is a right that always existed. Another person does not have a right to infringe on it, deny it, grant it or anything else. We are all born with the same God given rights, Ironically, the same people that want to deny other people of their right to bear arms, aka the government, will still have guns with the self appointed right to use them on unarmed people. Only a coward would do that. Not a gun owner that would like to prevent that from happening. If gun owners were trying to disarm the government so that only they would have guns then that would make them cowards. That is not happening. That would be hypocritical. Disarming themselves to be vulnerable to armed entities would just make them stupid. If you feel that arming yourself with a stick makes you less of a coward I will not try to deny you of that right. I won’t even criticize you for doing it.

      • do you realize what you just said? we are the only country that allows guns so your god given right to own a gun means nothing. THE ONLY PURPOSE OF THE 2nd IS TO TAKE DOWN THE GOVT when it gets out of control. it is out of control but being more then half the people get govt checks nothing will happen. by the time it gets to the point of the stupid phrase I want to protect my family it is to late. 2nd amendment aint about defending it is about offending. right now the coward cops who can kill anyone they want . it has reached the point of govt killing people but as a yellow gun owner like all the rest you worship cops

        • You see, that’s where your argument falls apart by portraying yourself as the all knowing when you don’t have, and couldn’t possibly have the slightest clue about what I think about cops or bus drivers or grocery clerks or anyone else. If you expect to be taken seriously drop the arrogance. To say that all gun owners worship cops simply because they own a gun is completely void of logic and reason. That makes as much sense as saying that everyone that owns a waffle iron worships airline pilots. As if owning an item somehow prevents a person from forming any opinion other than the one you have designated as inevitable because you have peered into the mind of everyone to be able to have this information. This may come as a surprise to you but just because you say something it does not automatically give it credibility. You are far from having it all figured out evidenced by your generalized statement that couldn’t possibly be true on any day, yet alone for you to have even acquired the the information to prove something like that.

          • all you said is just a pile of horse s h it. go on ANY gun forum or ANY gun show or gun store and talk down cops. see what happens. they let cops in gun shows for free and give them discounts. . you are an idiot and exactly like the cowards I am talking about.

          • I could care less what anyone else’s opinion is about cops. We are talking about your delusional belief that you know my mind better than I do. Or the mind of anyone else that you have never met for that matter. Once again, you are under the misguided impression that one condition implies another condition to be absolute to everyone that owns a gun. In spite of a complete lack of logic, you are stating that because you believe that all gun shows give discounts to cops and let them in for free, in some twisted way that makes all gun owners cowards and because I don’t subscribe to that I’m an idiot. Do you know what I think about that? Of course you do, so no need for me to post it. Please have something intelligent to say if you insist on dragging this on.

          • I really got to you and you are trying everything to prove you are not like the others when we both know you are. you have been outed. you have NEVER tried to disprove what I said only giving the liberal view that you cant make blanket statements just like the commies say

          • Wow. Do you even read your own comments? You are claiming that just because someone owns a gun they automatically love cops and are cowards by default. Then you tell me I am making blanket statements. On the contrary, you have outed yourself as a complete whack job. You have yet to say anything intelligent that consists of logic or reason.I don’t have to prove anything. You claiming that I am like anything based on zero information about me is baseless and means nothing. The real issue is that you are making claims that you can’t prove, therefore, I have nothing to disprove. Get it?

          • in the last35 years whites have declined from over 80% to barely 60%. this is slow motion genocide. WHEN THE PHUCK ARE THE BRAVE GUN OWNERS MOSTLY WHITE GONNA DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? when they are 2% of the population? it is the govt that is genociding whites. coward do you understand what I am saying?

          • So that’s what this is all about. Your pissed off because you expect gun owners to fix the problem for you while you sit home on your computer whining and offering nothing from yourself and because gun owners are not coming to your rescue they are cowards. Here’s a news flash for you. Gun owners don’t own guns so that they can banned together and go attack the bad guys and save the world for people like you that complain and offer no alternative solution. It is all about SELF DEFENSE and the right to have the means of self defense when it becomes necessary. If that makes someone a coward in your eyes, no one gives a rats ass, because until you do something about the problem instead of whining on the internet that makes you nothing but a coward also. Do you understand what I am saying? You’re saying I’m a coward because I’m not fixing the problem for you, which I did not create. You think just because someone owns a gun that they are obligated to save you from the bad guys. Grow up and take responsibility for saving your own ass. I’m not your mama.

          • you are the dumbest coward I ever saw. THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS TO TAKE DOWN THE GOVT NOT FOR DEFENSE IT IS FOR OFFENSE . that is what you cowards have twisted into. the govt is replacing the whites and stealing their money . WHEN THE PHUCK WILL GUN OWNERS DO SOMETHING? the 2nd AINT ABOUT DEFENDING IT IS TO TAKE THE GOVT DOWN. I tried in gun stores forums and gun shows to organize something and was thrown out harassed by cops and cowards like you. I CANT DO IT ALONE. so I guess you will be ready to “defend” your self when there are 4 white people left in the country

  5. Supreme Court cases:
    (Murdock v. Pennsylvania) ~ “No State shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.“
    (Shuttlesworth v. City of Birmingham) ~ “If the State converts a right (liberty) into a privilege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right (liberty) with impunity.”

  6. The people pushing for control” (1)Want more taxes (2)Will not be affected for fear of guns (3) Are so self important that they are either escorted by armed guards or will be exempt from any gun ban laws(California). “Space Girl” Pelosi has a CCL. In that case, almost everyone could and should.
