Gun Ownership Was Just Taxed To Oblivion

Two landmark gun control measures were passed recently, and of course this was in California. The city of San Jose has passed two measures against the legal gun owners in their city.

The first measure that was passed was to require all gun owners to obtain and maintain liability insurance on their firearms, much like insurance on cars. It’s not clear how much this is going to cost or what exactly the insurance is covering.

The second measure requires all gun owners to pay an ANNUAL TAX to cover the costs of gun related emergency calls. The City of San Jose spent $443 million last year combating gun violence. The tax ammount has not been estabilished yet, but one would expect it to be at least that $450M combined between gun owners.

While announcing these landmark decisions, the mayor of San Jose, Sam Liccardo, stated, “While the Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms, it does not require taxpayers to subsidize gun ownership.”

While the Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms, it does not require taxpayers to subsidize gun ownership.

This begs the question, can you tax something that is an enumerated constitutional right? If so, what are the full ramifications of doing so and what doors will this open in the future. Secondly, how many legal gun owners will suddenly become illegal gun owners?

Why should taxpayers pay the bill for voting? How about a poll tax? Oh now I remember. Constitutional Right. Not allowed. How can they expect this infringement of an enumerated right not to loose in Court? No matter, its just one of the 1000 cuts strategy for which passing unconstitutional laws currently carries no personal repercussions. Guess they are not all that concerned with burdening their tax payers with millions in litigation costs while the hypocrites lament the costs of crime most of which is a result of the perverted policies they impose on society.

2nd Amendment Right! Not, 2nd Amendment Privilege! I think it is time to fine & punish the legislators who write and endorse, the unconstitutional law’s. They waste the Courts time & our tax monies.

For all of the gun fanatics, there’s one person out there who’d like to throw away the Constitution, and come for your guns. the guns would be in his way when he tries to establish a dictatorship. Interestingly, many of the gun fanatics are also fanatics for this former President, no matter how much he protests that he won the most recent Presidential election. If he should get back in, the gun fanatics will hear a knock on the door, asking for your guns, and it won’t be who you thought…it’ll be your erstwhile here. The gun fanatics will prove to be “useful idiots” for this former President and would be future dictator…if you still need a hint as to who I write about, do the initials “DJT” mean something?

So watch what happens going forward. The idiots passing such a law against gun owners will be the first to call in “gun toting” security to protect themselves when the going gets tough.

According to the Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution, any laws that do not adhere to our Bill of Rights and our US Constitution are NULL & VOID from inception, and no US Citizen has a DUTY or RIGHT to either OBEY or ENFORCE them. And the Kommie TRAITORS who sponsor any illegal unConstitutional laws are guilty of many crimes, one of which is FELONIOUS PERJURY when they take their oath to uphold and defend the US Constitution knowing in their hearts that their agenda is to destroy it. They are also guilty of CONSPIRACY TO DENY US CITIZENS THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. And those are both FELONIES, which according to their laws would make them ineligible to possess firearms. These gun grabbing sons a bitches need to be charged with TREASON, given a fair trial and if found guilty be hung from their scrawney necks. But not without a proper good old fashioned Tar&Feathering and a bumpy rail ride down to the hanging tree. How come our “authorities” are letting the likes of them get away with this ?
