Posted on 10/15/2019 10:42:58 AM PDT by Red Badger
Her gun control, made public in August on Medium, shows Warren believes the current ten percent excise tax on firearms is too low. She wants to raise that tax to 30 percent while increasing the tax on ammunition to 50 percent.
Because excise taxes are paid directly by the consumerthe taxes are added to the price of the goodsthis means a $500 gun would immediately cost $515 and the price for a $20 box of ammo would immediately rise to $30.

Princess running beaver drinkum too much fire water. Ugh. No, literally.
Dummy.....Like no Dems own guns. They just don’t join the NRA.
I’m no math wizard but 30% of 500 is 150. The gun would cost $650.
Math is not part of the curriculum in Journalism Skoolze............

Right, because no one who can do math would settle for urinalism.
Can we put an excise tax on abortions?
30% of 500 is 150........
$500 gun includes the current 10% tax. A 20% rise to 30% would put the gun at $600.
I’m a Indian too..
We should use taxes to keep poor people from voting.
Wait, wasn’t that found to be illegal?
what about bows and arrows?
Being the racist that she is, Princess Wampum Grabbing Beaver thinks that most gun rights supporters (note that this term eliminates liberal hypocrites with guns) are middle aged white males who voted for Trump; people she doesn’t like.
It’s all about class warfare; nothing to do with public safety. Go to youtube & look up “hunter harassment” with vids of hate filled termagants yelling abuse at lawful hunters. These are Lizzie’s soulmates.
“Termagant” is a term that applies to Fauxcahontas.
Keep guns from all Democrats and gun crimes go down well over ninety percent.
More and more these idiots are distancing themselves from being elected.
More like a destitute, bulemic, three penny upright in a London slum.
We should use welfare laws to prevent parasites from voting...................
Or spears and tomahawks?...................
