Jamie at Intoxination says let’s tax guns and ammo.

I am proposing a new tax called the National Firearms Tax. Every time someone buys a firearm or ammo there is an additional tax added to it. These taxes will work much like the taxes on alcohol and tobacco in that they go into a special fund designated only for uses in firearms.

I think a number of things are needed to get us to gun sanity: mental health screening, a ban on 30 round clips, lots of education, and background checks on any gun purchase (no exceptions) including internet stores, private sales, and gun shows.
