  • SB-2099 - Senate Bill Requiring Federal Tax on Guns
    Take a grain of truth, sprinkle it with false and misleading statements, add a heaping dollop of paranoia, and what do you have?

  • OP here, lol 3 ring circus I agree. I just wanted to see how many people believe everything they hear. My husband was just telling me that so many people at his work believe this (that we were going to be taxed on guns). So many people do not even look up e-mail forward, etc.

  • So taxing cars is ok, taxing pets is ok, taxing real estate is ok, and taxing guns is not? I don't see the logic.

  • Even though this story isn't true, I wouldn't have been upset if it were. $50 tax versus peace of mind....priceless! :o)
