Liz Warren Vows to Tax Gun Owners Back to the Stone Age with Radical Anti-Second Amendment Agenda
Because THIS will win back the blue collar workers that Hillary lost!
[PJMedia] "The power to tax is the power to destroy."
-John Marshall, 4th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court
U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential contender Liz Warren wants to tax us gun owners back to the Stone Age, as a part of her radical gun control agenda, revealed this weekend.
If elected, Warren promises to raise taxes on firearms and ammo purchases by 30% and 50%, respectively. That's on top of her plan for federal licensing for gun ownership -- presumably with a federal database of who owns what -- expanded background checks, and a renewed ban on "assault-style" weapons.
Warren revealed her plans at the Gun Safety Forum in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, an event organized by Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety. She also posted on Medium:
"The next President has a moral obligation to use whatever executive authority she has to address the gun crisis, but it is obvious that executive action is not enough. Durable reform requires legislation ‐ but right now legislation is impossible. Why? A virulent mix of corruption and abuse of power."
What's she saying here? That she intends to go after the NRA and other lobby groups' "stranglehold on Congress" with new anti-corruption legislation. "Anti-corruption" in this case means "using the law to silence dissent." Because you can't gut the Second Amendment without gutting the First -- and vice-versa. Imagine the howls, under the first Republican president following a Liz administration, when progressive groups learn that Warren has neutered their First Amendment rights, too.
