2. discussion should always be possible

I have no issue with your tax idea in principle, but in practice I can see the potential for problems. I love the idea of increasing general education and the idea of removing the cool factor from guns. I would support this idea as long as the tax was modest and the educational information was neutral in political tone. No "guns=evil" type ads.

Something along the lines of what the NRA does with the Eddie Eagle program. Don't touch! Leave the area! Tell an adult! Add to this information on the dangers of misuse without demonizing them.
