San Jose: Gun Insurance (Tax) to Pay for Violence: Scam to Price Guns Out of Hands of Potential Victims

Democrats love taxes.  Now the Democrats in San Jose, who have allowed criminal to roam their streets want money to “fight” crime.  They want to put a violence tax on your gun.  I would call the gun an tool for anti-violence.  But, when you are trying to get money to finance socialism and you do not want people to have self-protection, a tax on guns makes sense.

“Gun owners in San Jose would have to insure their weapons, pay a fee to cover taxpayer costs associated with gun violence and be video recorded while purchasing firearms under a plan Mayor Sam Liccardo released Tuesday.”

Funny, the criminals will not be recorded when they buy or steal guns.  The criminals will not pay a tax on their guns—only those trying to protect their and property would be taxed.  What a scam.  How about a tax on knives, poison, special tax on cars to pay for drunk drivers—as the Democrat known you can make up a story to tax anything—just give government your money, all your money.

Will San Jose pass gun insurance, taxes?

Gun owners in San Jose would have to insure their weapons, pay a fee to cover taxpayer costs associated with gun violence and be video recorded while purchasing firearms under a plan Mayor Sam Liccardo released Tuesday. The 10-step agenda, introduced after last month’s mass shooting at a San Jose rail yard, would go further than state lawmakers were willing to last week, when they rejected a bill that would have taxed firearms and ammunition to fund gun violence prevention programs. Gun rights advocates are preparing to sue San Jose if the city council approves Liccardo’s plan — and they could very well have a good chance in court. A federal judge last week declared California’s three-decades-old ban on assault weapons unconstitutional, the third time he’s blocked the state’s strictest-in-the-nation gun control laws.

  1. Someone should do a FOIA request for hard data on who is doing the shootings and killings in San Jose. My suspicion is — gangs and criminals make up the majority of shootings and deaths. Sure there are occasional accidents or suicides with guns where a parent has failed to properly secure them, but those get all the attention while the real hard-core gun violence is only reported in the news with a byline, such as “3 people were shot in a drive-by.” And Sam Liccardo is well aware that no one in the gangs or with a criminal record will ever pay a penny of the “tax”, nor will they get insurance.

    These types of laws have only one purpose, to disarm the public so that they will never be able to rise up against a tyrannical (or a Communist) government.

  2. The communist democrats no longer hide their goal of disarming Americans and their distain for the Constitution.

  3. Ever notice how the number of “mass shootings” always seem to occur and increase just at the time the Socialists are starting a now campaign to ban guns?

    I have!
