$1,000 Gun Tax Pushed As “Role Model” For States

posted on April 20, 2016

If they can’t ban ’em, they’ll simply tax ’em out of existence. That seems to be the newest tactic that anti-gun politicians are grasping onto to take away your firearms. 

On Jan. 1, Seattle’s so-called “gun violence tax” went into effect—this law penalizes gun owners to the tune of $25 per gun. But now, an even more onerous tax is being touted as a role model for the U.S. After having an outright ban on handguns rejected in court, the Northern Mariana Islands Commonwealth is imposing a $1,000 tax on all handguns sold in the U.S. Territory. 

It’s certainly a concept that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would endorse. As far back as 1993, she can be seen enthusiastically supporting a proposal for a 25-percent tax on guns: “I’m all for that.” 

The NRA is still challenging the Seattle tax, and legal action is expected against the Mariana Islands measure.
