View Full Version : Second Amendment question regarding non-gun owners

01-06-2013, 9:43 PM
There is a closed thread talking about taxing non-gun owners for the estimated extra protection it requires to defend them. Why aren't the gun organizations pushing bills in every state that would force non-gun owners to pay a yearly tax for the estimated cost unless they can show proof of ownership of a gun and rounds for it. When computing the non-gun owner tax everything should be taken into account. The cost of police, cost to investigate crimes invovling guns where the victim was unarmed, the arrests, the court costs including public defenders, and finally the cost of prison time. Would this be violating the Second Amendment or enforce it? Comments?

the thread was closed because the story was bogus. it's a happy concept but it'd never fly.

Seeing as the police are not responsible for your safety, what extra cost is incurred? You simply choose to not be protected.
