As Chicago struggles to quell gang violence that has contributed to a jump in homicides, a top elected official wants to tax the sale of every bullet and firearm — an effort even she acknowledges could spark a legal challenge. What an excellent idea. Make it even more expensive for honest citizens to defend themselves from criminals.
**Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle [sic] will submit a budget proposal Thursday that calls for a tax of a nickel for each bullet and $25 for each firearm sold in the nation’s second-largest county, which encompasses Chicago.
Chicago already has strict gun laws in place where a citizen is penalized for owning a weapon and that weapon can not leave the confines of the home. There is hell to pay if a homeowner uses that weapon to defend .
However, the criminals have no problem since they do not register their guns or I suspect buy their ammo from regular sources.
Have you noticed the flurry of laws coming out of demorats?**
