16. Ever had kids? Ever tried to make them do something?

 

Well the more you tell people not to do something and the more taboo/forbidden it is... the more they're going to demand it. Just like the popularization of Black Rifles and Assault Weapons in the midst of the 1994 AWB and just like the current gun/ammo rush, if people fear a ban or are told not to do something it's just going to increase demand.

Did you know, that REAL fully automatic weapons have a $200 excise per firearm and paperwork that takes about 4 months to clear... and they demand for them is outrageos. The tax and onerous paperwork/waiting was incorporated to dissuade full auto firearm ownership. A Mac11 that cost $400 in the 80's costs over $3000 now. An UZI that cost only abuut $600 now costs about $7000. Full Auto M16... $13000. Boy, that tax sure keeps people from buying them.
