Let’s Talk about Guns

The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution says “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Ok, I can live with that. Have as many guns as you want. It’s the bullets I want to regulate. I propose making the possession of bullets outside of licensed preserves a felony punishable by up to five years as Bubba’s roommate.

I also want to tax them to death. How does a 100% Federal Sales Tax on all ammunition sound? And that’s not to mention the licensing fees for the preserves. On second thought, maybe we should make that 200%.

We could balance the budget in no time as well as take a massive bite out of crime and deaths through accidental shootings. As an extra added bonus, the only gun fatalities will be gun nuts so slowly, but surely, we might drive the breed to extinction.

The dum-dums that just have to have 40 rifles and pistols around the house wouldn’t have anything to complain about either. They only need bullets when they go to the range or hunting and all of those places would be licensed preserves with a generous supply of the best ammunition money could buy.

So feel free to curl up with, feel up, and use for various forms of pleasure your now guaranteed safe firearms.
