Democrat Proposes 1,000% Tax on Guns

Democrats love taxes and hate the Second Amendment, so this makes perfect sense:

Rep. Donald Beyer, D-Va., is introducing the bill which would tax all AR-15-style weapons at 1,000%…

When all you’ve got is a hammer…

Although most people understand that it would have the opposite effect, the ostensible idea is that preventing law-abiding citizens from exercising their right to bear arms would reduce murder. Why not cut to the chase and tax mass shootings? Better still, Biden could sign an executive order imposing a tax on maniacs who don’t obey laws.

Beyer, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, told Business Insider that the measure is “sensible gun control.”

It’s as if the word “sensible” had talismanic power to get people to go along with anything, no matter how unreasonable. Next comes, “Give up your car. It’s just sensible climate control.”

A 1,000% tax on AR-15 style guns could add as much as $5,000 to $20,000 to the sale price, as the price for them is typically from $500 to over $2,000.

At least liberal elitists could still afford them to protect their lavish homes.

This isn’t only about pricing regular Americans out of the market for self-defense, even as crime spirals out of control thanks to Democrat policy and their War on Police. The devious tax is intended to skirt both the Constitution and the filibuster.

Barks Beyer:

“We think that a 1,000% fee on assault weapons is just the kind of restrictive measure that creates enough fiscal impact to qualify for reconciliation.”

That way Democrats can ram it through on a party line vote.

The scheme doesn’t stop at AR-15s:

[H]igh-capacity magazines that have the ability to carry more than 10 rounds of ammunition would be included.

Modern handguns tend to hold more than 10 rounds. Women caught alone in the house when gangs of George Floyd types break in are glad for it.

“Shall not be infringed” reads the Second Amendment. As with all Democrat policy regarding firearms, the explicit point of Beyer’s tax is infringement. He should be removed from office for violating his oath to support the Constitution. The same goes for most if not all Democrats.
