    Chicago city council has passed a tax measure on firearms. If you buy a firearm in chicaco, there will be a "violance Tax" for the purchase. I'm afraid this idea will spread to most major cities, and eventually all firearms sales.

    I wonder how much they will see from this, I mean I am sure the majority of firearms are purchased legally in Chicago......

    Nothing that happens in Chicago will spread too quick.

    All firearms have had an 11% Tax on them since 1937 When the Pittman–Robertson Act or as its offically called the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration of 1937 was passed. Ammo is also taxed. The tax is paid by the manufacturers.

    I would not be surprised if Seattle did not follow their lead. Still, even though I live in Seattle I could not care less. I do all my shopping outside the city limits and usually out of King county. I do it because the greedy politicians at the city and county level are not going to get any of my money as much as I can help it.
    The Seattle shopping bag city ordinance really pushed my away even further.

    It's Chicago. That entire town could disappear into a sinkhole tomorrow and it would be a net improvement for the country.

    Corrupt cops, corrupt politicians, hatred for freedom and contempt for anyone not beholden to .Gov. I lived there for about 16 months, I hated every day of it.

    Are the politicians so dumb to think the bad guys are going to buy guns legally and pay the tax…no only the law abiding citizens.
