    Democrats: Get A $2,000 Tax Credit For Turning In Your Assault Rifles - Matt Vespa

    "Congressional Democrats have a grand scheme to make America’s streets safer; incentivize people cannibalize to their Second Amendment rights for tax credits. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) will introduce the Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our Streets Act, which will do just that..."

    Not the first and not the last example of how fearful they are of gun owners.

    For those with a bit of memory you may remember how the same activities started in MO, USA when the vote for Conceal carry was coming up.

    With the scare tactics focused in the cities and to the welfare moms (Demographics of the add campaign's adds proved this point.) allowed the anti carry to pass. Until the second round of voting woke up the rural voters and the ban on CC was soundly trounced.

    As a note you'll now see that Kansas, USA now has a "Will Carry", that meaning no test or license, to all of that state that do not have a record of specified offenses.

    One step at a time.

    It doesn't work like that.... If you turn in a weapon, you get to deduct $2000 from your NET Income, and this means you do NOT have to pay the US INCOME Tax, On that $2000 of Income. So if your Tax rate is say 12%, you would get a $240 break on your US Income Tax, for that year.... If each weapon costs more than $240, you would be loosing Money..... These Politicos aren't stupid, you know.... I mean "Really"....

    Reminds me of the time a "Cult" wanted me to donate an item in my inventory (then had a brick and mortar business). They started with "But you can deduct it from your taxes.", my reply was "Right and if it's stolen the same thing happens and I'm still out a major loss, no thanks.

    Step 1: Use the private IRS to make most people poor.
    Step 2: Merge the forced healthcare system with the IRS, who collects and intimidates.
    Step 3: Offer an incentive to disarm the populace.

    Pretty clear strategy.

    And just like Ford said...."You can have that car in any color you like, as long as it is black." (Of the two, only this one is honest.)

    No. Every American is forced to have suitable healthcare coverage. Yes, they may keep the current plan, but many employers have already changed those plans, some premiums go up, many stay the same -but adding a spouse ain't gonna be free. Also, in a few years, just wait for it...the icing on the cake. So, it is forced healthcare, especially when you factor in the fines and penalties (and interest) levied by the IRS for any who DO NOT have suitable coverage. And going for the Obama coverage would be ridiculous, very unaffordable. Bottom line: folks can no longer freely "opt-out", they MUST have coverage. Must be nice to be self employed these days. eh?

    Should've gone into the health insurance racket.

    Just wait until they start taxing our employers' contribution to our healthcare as part of our income. Just wait, it's coming. Why else would they have employers put the dollar amount of their healthcare contribution on your W2.
