“based on a production cost of $2 per gram… the after-tax retail price will be $17 per gram, or $482 per ounce. Another projection, based on a production cost of $3 per gram, puts the retail price at $25.50 per gram, or $723 per ounce.”
Welcome to Forbes
Compared to what is projected today to be about $28.00 an oz. I cant really relate to any of this stuff...back in the 70's a 5 finger lid would go for about 20 bucks...and thats the last time I could give you any personal feel for the market.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Where I live gun safes are almost as common as refrigerators. I don't think I'd have a problem finding a friend to hang on to them.
BTW I'm an emergency responder. If there is a disaster I'm pretty much expected to be armed.
As I am not a gun owner nor have plans to be one, this would be very theoretical of me to respond. Nevertheless, what strikes me as odd is that the police would really even come up in my head as an option for storage (regardless of weather conditions). The nearest entity I could potentially see being fine is if you are a university student and in order to comply with the campus regs, you store them over their police department. No big deal, my friends did that plenty of times. Otherwise, I would be pretty hard pressed to think of a reason why I would really want to give a state entity expensive property that could easily be misplaced or held up through some bureaucratic hell. On top of that, what if large numbers of people actually take advantage of such a thing? Would it be possible that with more weapons to keep track of, more mistakes would occur?

Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
