I am sure not an antigunner, but I have no delusions about how far the statists will go.

We gunowners "let" the government tax the Thompsons to start with, "let" them excise tax all guns and ammunition, "let" them completely ban new retail sales of full autos, "let" them ban new sales of military looking rifles and standard capacity magazines (for "only" 10 years... the first time), and "let" state and local governments put in untold numbers of repressive laws that have little to do with public safety.

If they want a punitive tax on all guns to support a new bureaucracy, I suspect we will "let" them do that, too.

England went for a good number of years with a 2/3 tax on new car sales; such stuff is never far from the minds of professional government.
