To all those who say the democrat's will not go after your guns Goggle up $25 Chicago gun tax.

Whose home town is this and what party control's that city.

It's only starting IMO.

Wow, a "violence tax" imposed on a legal purchase to fund the "criminal justice system, and healthcare (for injured perps)". I wonder, how many firearms used in crimes are legally purchased by the person committing the crime (not a straw purchase). Crack down on the "straw man", and that would solve a big part of the problem.

Obama care will solve their healthcare issues. So, Chicago's problems will become ours soon.

The "violence" tax should be imposed on criminals that commit the crimes. Put them to work for rehabilitation and tax them a standard flat tax on there earnings then let that pay for police funding to combat crime.

Funny how the Left gets upset @ a voter ID saying it's disenfranchisement.

But they have no problem w/the guvmn't

- demanding an ID

- requiring you pay special federal taxes on

- requiring time consuming federal and in many cases state background checks

- requiring you to also provide your SSN (actually saying you don't have to provide it if you don't want timely action)

- Requiring you to prove your residency (not just your name/address)

- allowing states/localities to arbitrarily impose additional taxes on

- and allowing states/localities to arbitrarily impose waiting periods on

exercising your 2A rights.

The latest Heller decision basically said the states can't say "nobody can ever own a gun" but pretty much allowed them to require you to guess how many marbles are in a barrel or publicly read a Chinese newspaper as a requirement- as long as they dont' ever say "you can't ever own one, you just need to satisfy these requirements...".

I think they should have a voting tax. $100 a pop. If you can't save $25/year to vote for POTUS, you obviously don't take voting that seriously and shouldn't pollute the results w/your arbitrary whims.

I find it very telling, those who feel so strong that the democrats would never do something like this are NOT responding to this thread, they must think it O.K.

It passed in conjunction with gambling and cigarette tax increases. I guess they're considering guns a "sin" now too. It won't effectively do anything to stem the carnage there as the criminals aren't buying their weapons legitimately anyway. A waste of time by the commissioners there, but is something they can take to the people at re-election time that they are working to solve their problems.
