    The morons don't understand/believe that it is men who are evil/violent, not an inanimate object!

  3. Nor do they seem to realize that the biggest purchaser of guns and ammo in Cook county is most likely the Chicago PD. Are they going to start taxing the sales to them to close the budget shortfall, thereby creating a bigger budget shortfall because they have to increase the PD budget to offset the increased spending on guns and ammo?

    State and most municipalities don't pay taxes on police purchases.
    This will only effect the law abiding citizen, since if ammo is too expensive, the outlaws will steal it.
    Or there will be a 'black market' for ammo.
    Honestly, are ALL Chicago politicos stupid? Sure seems like it.
  5. That's my point...how do they expect to close a budget shortfall with a tax when the biggest purchasers of the "taxed" item are tax exempt?

    Just the title/name sounds like......
    compensating for a little weenie..
    I apologize, but it just does !
    It won't ever stop....the taxation...
    on anything that comes to mind from a
    greedy, anal-retentive public official.

    It is the exact same thing as a professor gaining
    tenure at a University.......
    If he can continue acquiring grants from the guberment,
    he is well respected, totally accepted, and praised
    by his 'peers' of the alumni and above.....

    We were warned.....decades ago....about allowing the
    goober-ment to grow to immense proportion !!!!!

    I heard this on the news today. I live in the far NW corner of cook county. 40 mi out of the city of Chicago. I will do the same thing I do when I buy any other item. I go out of Cook County. I live less than a mile to the south and west of 2 other County. I save 3% to buy out of Cook county.

    These Chicago politicians are out of their minds. The only thing they can do is raise taxes. You can't get them out of office as they are carried but the welfare voting freeloaders.

    This is why the surrounding county's are all republican.

    How long do empires/civilizations last on the average....?
    Are we 'due' historically.....for a major fall ??


    Who knows.....and when is Jesus coming back ?

    I see this.....we are so many now [population wise] that subconsciously
    we move thru our daily life not giving a rats-ass about one another
    [paraphrased] except on certain close-knit circles of peers and groups.
    Whether it be church, forums, sports, etc. we really keep to ourselves...
    and are bad to talk about others....behind their back.
    Are we simply 'statistically' doomed.....?

    What did Eisenhower know.....who inspired
    and enlightened him...?

    "I can think of nothing more boring for the American people than to have to sit in their living rooms for a whole half hour looking at my face on their television screens."
    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    "There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence and energy of her citizens cannot cure."
    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    "Don't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book..."
    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    "Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage."

    Since the cash cow of the smoker has nearly been bled dry, it's only logical the gov. would start making other things "incorrect" so there's less objection to heavily taxing it. Ammo, soda/fast foods coming, candy is being discussed...people should have realized waaaaay back that sitting still for exorbitant taxes on someone else that doesn't affect you right now, lays the stage for more strictures and taxes later on. Precedent has been set. So sooner or later, the gov WILL hit something you care about.

    I know, I was agreeing with and expounding on your point.
    You hit it right on the head, they're either idiots or are using this to further their anti-gun agenda, which in point of fact makes them idiots, since history shows guns laws don't effect criminals.
    I couldn't be dragged or coerced into living in that State, they're so messed up.
