I have no problem with a tax credit for those who voluntarily turn in their own fire arms. I have a huge problem with increasing taxes on those who do not turn in their guns.

I have a massive problem with them spending taxpayer money to buy legal guns off the street. Law-abiding, tax paying citizens aren't the ones we need to keep guns away from anyways. It's a complete joke.

beaver...I see your point. I did see they credit was up to $2000. So could I buy AR-15 for $1000 every year and turn it over to the government for a $2000 refund?

They need to up that to a $200,000 tax credit to get one of mine. $2000 wouldn't do shite for me.

I have already established myself as a gun owner (not AR style) and not really caring about AR style weapons. But if I had one???? And the price was right. Like in my previous post. If the government was paying at or above the ridiculous rates being asked right now???

"Here you go Uncle Sam. It's for the children."

And for the Rolex the proceeds the cash would go toward.

My pistol though? Piss off! Keep your slimy paws off it. I shopped for that bastard for 4 years.

well this at least confirms that libs know that not taxing something helps spur activity and that taxing something brings about diminished activity in that area, so now if they could just get honest about the whole damn economy, we would be rockin

If they agree to tax exemption for life, I will turn in my carbine, I don't know anyone who owns an assualt rifle.

My guess is this will eventually morph into a permanent "Gun-Free Home Tax Deduction", which people with registered firearms in their household won't get..

That's the easiest way to tax gun owners without actually taxing them..
