I am not taxing anything, but if Congress can get a majority to agree to taxing guns and ammo more, then it happens. That is how all taxing works.

Really the liberals and Democrats have become such a radical party over the last several years. They are the new tyranny of our time.
Sure we are. do you always blame the other side when your side does poorly in the polls too?

Classic....

I think we should tax Progressives at a greater rate than constitutional conservatives, just to make them conform to my thinking, or pay me a fortune.

Well you call your far right congressman and propose that idea and see how far it gets.

Who said anything about hate? I just explained how taxing works. As for tax on guns and ammo, I am fine with that.

You don't like guns and you would have no problem supporting something that had nothing to do with you.

Why do you support taxing me more for something I like to do, that harms no one else.

Because I do, if there is a majority that agree in Congress, then we will see taxes on guns and ammo go up. What does this have to d with harming anyone?

You think that if there are higher taxes, more guns won't be on the street, because it will cost more.

Again, why should I be taxed, because I like to shoot paper targets?
