Drawing the ire of the gun lobby, Cook County Board President Preckwinkle is eyeing a violence tax on guns and ammunition sold in the city and suburbs, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.
New taxes are always the answer for the far left. Cut wasteful and failing social programs? No. Let's just tax Whitey. I'm also not sure how this can be considered a "violence tax" considering the vast majority of people that acquire firearms through legal channels are not the ones causing the tribal warfare.
“If we were to pursue a tax on something like guns and ammo, clearly that wouldn’t be popular with the [gun lobby] out there, and it may not generate $50 million, but ... it is consistent with our commitment to pursuing violence reduction in the city and in the county,” Kurt Summers, Preckwinkle’s chief of staff, said on Monday.
Well, it's consistent with your endless attacks on individual rights and endless tax burdens on working people. Does anyone honestly believe that more government theft is somehow going to reduce negro criminality?
Murders in Chicago are up 25 percent this year, according to recent police statistics, and the county jail is filling up — with 9,000-plus inmates, nearing the 10,155 capacity.
Clearly more tax and spend is the answer.
Along with the tragic human toll, gun violence takes a toll on government coffers.
Replace "gun violence" with "negro and la-teen-oh crime" and it becomes an accurate statement.
This is just another story of government bloat, waste and tyranny. Rather than address the root of the problem, we get ill-conceived taxation and more wasteful social programs (Obama gwine get me da free sail phone). We can solve these problems with White Nationalism.
The mystery meat behind the tax 'n' spend.
