Joe Biden just pulled the trigger on gun owners. If he is actually sworn in as president, he has a disastrous plan ready. This can’t be real.
According to Breitbart News, Biden’s “gun tax proposals could cost gun owners upwards of $34 billion for guns and magazines they already possess,” including “a $200 tax for each AR-15 that is already owned.”
If Biden has his way, he will be able to declare virtually any firearm an “assault weapon” and also levy another $200 tax on so-called “high capacity” magazines in the owner’s possession. It is insanity.
For a candidate who declared “unity” as a rallying cry, Biden appears poised to divide Americans by targeting gun owners with ridiculous taxes — likely in an attempt to dissuade people from owning guns at all.
But it should be unconstitutional to unfairly tax a constitutional right. After all, the Supreme Court, in District of Columbia v. Heller, reaffirmed that the right to keep and bears arms was an individual right in the Second Amendment.
What business does Biden have trying to tax gun owners into oblivion? The end result will be that only wealthier Americans will be able to afford to own guns, thereby disarming most of the country. Call your U.S. representative and senators now.
