Just when you thought you heard it all, the city of Seattle has enacted a gun violence tax. Instead of enforcing the laws already on the books, the city of Seattle chooses to tax the law-abiding citizen $25 per gun and 2 cents per bullet.
The politicians that voted to force this illegal tax upon its residents should be recalled. Undoubtedly gun sales will plummet in Seattle, business owners will close their shops and residents will go other cities and buy their firearms. They will then return to Seattle with their legally purchased firearms and ammo. What the blah, blah, blah are they thinking?
