    Actually, If I were president, I wouldn't do ****, cause everybody in D.C. and his/her brother, sister, mother, father, and every single other relative would be working against me, as I'm not in any of their groups.

    11%?? That should be for the first handgun or legitimate hunting weapon. After that it goes up 25%, 40%...

    And...

    All small-dick compensation weapons should be taxed as luxury items - 75%

    What if I need (want) several RPG launchers and hundreds of rounds as tools to drill blasting holes for my family gravel quarry?

    Do I have to pay extra for each additional RPG launcher, or can I qualify it as a business usage, allowing me to fall under a different tax framework?

    Wouldn't a small thermo nuclear device be better for that business?

    yeah we know you have a desire to see the government take more and more wealth from private individuals

    we ought to tax the posts of those who want to steal the wealth of others

    what is a small dick compensation weapon

    I want to hear your obvious expertise on this subject. Having been a world class competitive shooter, counsel for everything from a sheriff's department to a Title II manufacturer (machine guns) I figured I knew about all there is to know about small arms but along you come and mention a type of gun I have never heard of

    is it some sort of strap on weapon?

    I would want gravel, not vapor and radioactive dust/gravel/rock chunks/bolders, were I in such a business.

    RPG rounds might actually be a bit expensive for drilling blasting holes, I haven't done a cost/benifit analysys.

    They would be far more fun, however.

    you need to pay a 200 dollar tax on each RPG projectile-you might have to pay 200 dollars on the propulsive rod as well ( the pink tube of stuff that actually launches the explosive head)

    sounds rather costly to me and those rounds aren't nearly as explosive as what you see on tv-they tend to be shaped charges that concentrate the blast in a small area to burn through armor
