BALTIMORE -- A mayoral candidate's plan to reduce violence in Baltimore includes a "bullet tax" that he said will increase the cost of committing a crime.
Otis Rolley said he would, if elected, propose a $1 per bullet tax on all bullet purchases in the city.
Right... Because we all know that criminals will never steal ammunition. I mean that would be crime. Not a crime like killing someone, but a real crime. Excuse me while I roll my eyes.
While Mr. Rolley is just your average nanny-state idiot, gun banners/controllers will no doubt support this idea because it supports their agenda of thinning out the number of legal gun owners, therefore thinning out the opposition to their various disarmament schemes.
Bullet taxes, licenses, registration, mandatory training... These are all designed to wage a war of attrition on legal gun ownership. To make the cost of ownership so high that no one will even bother to buy a gun or continue being a gun owner.
And let's not forget this country's dark history when it comes to taxing rights. It was done back then for many of the same reasons gun controllers/banners want to do it now.
