    Good point. I AM a smoker and the lmposition of excessive taxes on tobacco products infuriates me. Then again a lot does that these days. Anyway, Since obama took office my little cigars have increased in price 3 times. I buy ten packs at a time. That used to cost me about $25.00. Then they went up to $28.00 something. Then around $30.00. The last time I bought them they were $34.80. I asked the store why the increase. They told me it was some part of either the stiffinus package or some other new proclamation by the messiah. It's a crime that they can get away with this. Whether you're a smoker or's the principle of the thing. What right do politicians have to levy an arbitrary tax on a particular commodity they don't personal use or like?
  2. Going by the strict wording of the Constitution, then ANY law that restricts ANYONE from owning ANY firearm in ANY way is a violation. "Shall not be infringed" is pretty specific.

    Even if the NFA was overturned, you would still have to deal with your state firearm laws which mimic in part to those of the NFA.

    Exactly! Every citizen of the US, according to the constitution, IS guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms capable and adequate for use during armed rebellion against the government. That is the sole PURPOSE for the Second amendment.

    So why do you think they don't want the good people to own these fine weapons? I can think of one good reason, but I'm just a bitter redneck clinging to my guns and religion. :rolleyes: :eek:
  6. I"m not a redneck, but I am what Barry considers a bitter clinger. I'm pretty sure we have the same reason in mind, and I'll come out and say it....because they're worried that when the start with the real heavy socialist crap, that the armed people in the US will rise up and march on Washington to throw their sorry a**es out of office.
