a tax on guns and ammo

the 2nd amendment says the right to bear arms wont be infringed.
so how about a tax.
50% on the cost of amo and guns.
the tax to be used for mental health care to prevent crazies from having a gun

it doesnt infringe your right to bear arms any more than sales tax or having to buy weapon in the first place does

1. the second amendment is a joke

even people who claim to support it really don't. It's a meaningless antique. There are plenty of infringements that we all agree on, we just need a few more.

2. Make the government pay for these atrocities....

add it to the national debt. Let's see what's most important to these right-wing nut jobs: guns or the Debt?
