This is insane!
In a new bill that may soon pass through the House without receiving any votes from Republicans, the Democrats are now seeking to place an astounding 1000% excise tax on weapons they consider assault weapons.
According to Newsmax, Democrat Rep. Don Beyer explained, “What it’s intended to do is provide another creative pathway to actually make some sensible gun control happen. We think that a 1,000% fee on assault weapons is just the kind of restrictive measure that creates enough fiscal impact to qualify for reconciliation.”
So this means that an AR-15 which which ranges anywhere from $500 to $2000 could soon be slapped with a 1,000% tax resulting in the weapons costing anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000.
Beyer then said, “There’s nothing magical about that thousand percent number. It’s severe enough to actually inhibit and restrict sales. But also successful enough that it’s not seen as an absolute ban.”
