Gun Control Is War On Poor

From National Interest:

Gun owners would have two choices: either surrender their property to the government or pay a $200 tax to keep each item, which will be added to a national registry. For many people, this would quickly turn into thousands of dollars paid to keep their own property. A hunter, for example, with just one AR-15 and four standard capacity magazines would owe the federal government $1,000. Failure to comply could mean up to ten years in federal prison and a $10,000 fine.

Gun Laws As Class Warfare On Poor

From The New York Times:

Though New Jersey has strict gun control laws, its firearms fees have not changed since the mid-1960s, making it a bargain for gun owners. A firearm identification card costs $5, while a permit to own a firearm is $2. A permit to carry a gun costs $20.

Mr. Murphy, a Democrat, has proposed fees that would be among the highest in the country. An identification card would cost $100, an owner’s permit would be $50 and a carry permit $400.

Obama Lies To Rape Victim About Guns

During a CNN “townhall” the President told a rape victim that nothing he is proposing is going to make it harder for a citizen to buy a gun:

During the same meeting he said that he wants to make it harder and more expensive to get a gun in order to make sure fewer people have them.

Making guns harder and more expensive to get will have a disproportionate effect on poor people. This is not only an attack on gun buyers but more specifically poor gun buyers. Poor people are usually the ones who need a gun the most because they generally live in a higher crime area. They have a limited amount of purchasing power already. A $25 dollar tax on firearms, like the one Seattle passed, may not seem like a lot of money but it is significant to someone living near or below the poverty line. Making guns more expensive is tantamount to a poll tax only this time it will affect those with less economic advantage rather than those with a different skin color.
