Taxes on assault weapons would pay down debt....in a hurry
With all the assault weapons out there. Past and present. Taxing all of these A/W at $200 or more,per gun,per year. Obama might not get his ban, but..........$200 tax on every assault weapon,annually would pay that dept down fast. Someone should run the numbers. I bet they have...... Food for thought.
or we could stop giving obamaphones that would cut the debt huh. or stop giving countries that hate us money that we had to borrow to begin with? or we could ban blacks since they are the ones that commit most murders.
.........or we could have a dollar tax for every post on the internet and get the debt entirely paid off or how about a 20% tax on all restraurant food over 200 calories to pay off the debt or maybe a 25% tax on all clothes not make in America (Check your closet and see how much you would be paying) to pay off our debt. Here is my point: Do you want the government to tax the "C/*R*A^P out of you to justifiy their wasteful spending without any logical reasoning. That's what you are suggesting. Your suggestion won't stop the violence; the killers and bad guys aren't going to pay anything; just the law-bidding citizens will suffer.
