Your Tax Dollars At Work: Buying More Anti-Gun Stupidity

posted on June 4, 2015

Massachusetts Rep. Edward Markey and New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney (or is it Malarkey and Baloney?) have earmarked millions of your tax dollars for two familiar anti-gun measures.

The first is the Gun Research Safety Bill, a plan to give $10 million a year (2016-2021) to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for “gun violence” research. The CDC is perhaps the most notoriously misleading conflator of gun statistics: Their website makes no distinction between criminal murder and suicide.

The second is another attempt to cram “smart guns” down your throat. It calls for all new handguns to be authorized-user-only enabled in five years, and all handguns of any vintage to be retrofitted in 10. Based on personal experience we can tell you this technology is nowhere near ready, to say nothing of it being a truly rotten idea for other reasons.

That flushing sound? It’s your Second Amendment rights and tax dollars going you-know-where.
