Taxation is an interesting concept. While most Americans scoff at the tax system–and rightfully so–it is a necessary part of life in the United States. In order that the government remains able to operate, it needs a supply of money from those living within the confines of our republic. That is fact. What boils the blood, however, is over-taxation. As the government grows unnecessarily, so do our taxes. That is fact. Even worse than over-taxation is targeted taxation; targeting specific items or groups that stand in opposition to an administration’s agenda. Taxation can be easily used as a weapon.
The debate over gun control has brought this age-old issue out of the back corner, and into the light. There has been talk amongst Democrats, and even some Republicans, about taxing guns at a higher rate than they are taxed currently. There has also been talk of taxing ammunition, so that it is nearly impossible to purchase.
What is happening here is a targeted taxation, designed to smother our Second Amendment right to bear arms. The Democrats can’t directly attack the Second Amendment, so instead, they starve it by taxation. When Democrats don’t get what they want, they always find means to achieve their goals, regardless of the opinion of the American people.
