So you 1k kayak now costs $2,100 and requires a one year wait till you can own it.
Well if that is what the majority vote for and I want to kayak, I am gonna pay that price...much like if you want to shoot a gun you will still pay that price no matter what.

I pay no sales tax on my brass & reloading needs either, it comes from out of state.
So you have paid for tax for your gun...also did you purchase your gun in a state with no sales tax?

Well of course you aren't going to pay taxes on guns that are handed down. The gun was handed down, not sold to you for a price.

This is what is wrong with the United States...

Just submit, the government will take care of you! And what the government does is good...because it's always the way to go...

Such a sad life to think like that..

True, and I would pay that tax to enjoy kayaking, would you pay that tax to enjoy your guns and ammo?

No, I am already taxed....would you pay another tax above and beyond to enjoy kayaking?

So what do you do with taxes that are passed that you don't support? We know there are taxes out there that you don't like, do you still just pay them or do you fight back and refuse to pay those taxes? It is one thing to act like you are so defiant of the government, it is much different to actually act on it.

I never said anything about the government taking care of me, this is about taxes and nothing more.

So you would give up guns and ammo if they raised the tax of it on you?

Is it all Democrats who propose this or just some of them? I'd hate to think they're all stupid.
