TAXATION
« on: January 23, 2021, 01:35:18 PM »
From time to time I have moments where many issues all run into each other.  Recently I have been thinking about all the ways the Left are attempting to get rid of firearms.  We will hear and read those that are actually legislating admit that they will lose if they just ban and confiscate, so they refer to making them too expensive to own and use. 

Think back to Obamacare passage and the court challenges.  How did they get it past the Constitution?  They changed it from mandatory purchase with a penalty for those who don't participate, to a tax somehow attributed to non-participation.

As citizens it is our responsibility to make sure our elected representatives play by the rules - Follow the Constitution.  How often do we hear or read that they are planning taxes, or taxes are a deterrent?  At what point does government taxation equal an infringement?  Another issue is the use of agencies to regulate rather than legislating.  Remember early in Pres. GWB's first term when OSHA attacked ammunition?  A backdoor attack on the Second Amendment that slipped through, but fortunately we had a president that was willing to address and correct it for us.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Again, I’ll repeat!

Everyone in government and the media focus on who’s sitting in the WH while the Congress pulls this bait and switch or Wizard of Oz curtain magic!

I would love having a president I want but it pisses me off more that our elected officials in congress look more and more like the politburo than OUR representatives!

Thing is, it's stupid.
If I were the democrat leadership, this Monday would be dedicated to defending against "White Supremacists, Fascists, racists, and "haters" in general by reopening the Machine Gun Registry and rolling back all restrictions except maybe licensing dealers, and Mg's.
All of the "armed" protests by conservatives proves that no matter what you've got You don't have balls enough to use it.
And with all the shiny new toys you'd never hear a peep about coups, or fraud, Donald Trump.
I'm the NRA, and I ain't giving up squat.
