Elizabeth Warren: TAX ALL THE GUNS!

The campaign ads write themselves: Elizabeth Warren has proposed not only rolling back the popular Trump tax cuts, but she wants to levy new taxes on wealth and free speech. And, of course, on guns, too!

Yes, the same Elizabeth Warren who invented an American Indian heritage to get an unfair advantage in hiring and promotion earlier in her career. The same Elizabeth Warren who falsely claimed she was fired for becoming pregnant. And now, the same Elizabeth Warren who has arguably become the front-runner among the current candidates for the Democrat nomination for the 2020 presidential race.

She’s talking about a YUGE hike in taxes on guns and ammunition. She wants to triple the tax on guns to 30% to promote “gun safety” initiatives. And she wants to quintuple the tax on ammunition to 50% for…more of the same.

And she thinks that’s a winning platform. I didn’t know recreational marijuana had become legal in Massachusetts yet.

From CNSNews.com:

Another Warren proposal would raise the tax on gun manufacturers from the current 10 percent “to 30 percent on guns and 50 percent on ammunition.” The proposal says the purpose is “to bring in new federal revenue that we can use for gun violence prevention and enforcement of existing gun laws.”

As she’s said before that the gun industry (along with just about every other private business in the country) makes too much money. They apparently enjoy too much free speech privileges as well.

Warren also proposes to create a corporate tax of seven percent to every dollar a company reports in profits above $100 million, and  an “excessive lobbying tax” that will tax 35 percent to firms that spend $500,000 on lobbying. A 60 percent levy would apply to firms that spend above $1 million on lobbying, and 75 percent if they spend above $5 million.

No doubt her lobbying tax is aimed primarily at Wayne LaPierre and the National Rifle Association.

The bad news for Fauxcahontas? Hillary Clinton (“I can beat him again!“) has made it clear she may dust off her Mao jacket collection and seek a rematch against Trump next year. Right now, HillaryClinton2020.com sits as literally a blank slate, all ready to go.

And there’s still plenty of time for Michelle Obama to announce her candidacy given the current clown car of inept, second-tier candidates currently in the running.

          Depends on the tech company.

          In some cases it’s not even the “tech company” but their parent company. Look at Blizzard’s current predicament. Brought on by partial ownership of Blizzard by Tencent.

          Tencent seems pretty innocuous on the surface but they’re Chicom to the core and they have heavy, heavy influence on Blizzard corporate policy. Look at what Mark Kern has revealed about Blizzard, and tech companies in general, being influenced by China/Chinese corruption. It appears that most Blizzard employees actually despise the company’s policies but, hey, they got kids to feed, so they learn their role and shut their hole until they’re out from under Blizzard contracts. Where there are Blizzard employees against Blizzard’s policies or supporting the protesters in HK, Blizzard has made it hard for them to be known.

          For example: this bleeds over from Blizzard into the Reddit where Blizzard monitors what’s said on it’s official threads to the point that they even temporarily killed r/Blizzard because of all the “offensive” postings it was getting. r/Blizzard came back but it’s now heavily moderated for any postings on such topics.

          It’s kinda scary to think about the influence China has bought itself when you consider that the gaming industry dwarfs a lot of others, including guns. The gun industry is a paltry $28 Billion, the NBA is only $24 billion a year. Meanwhile gaming is $140 billion to $150 billion a year.

      WTF are you talking about? Corporate donations to Hillary were about four times those given to Trump.

      The DNC gets more in donations from corporate givers than the RNC does.
      Apple campaign contributions: 87.5 Democrat, 10.5% Republican.
      Microsoft: 80.2 Democrat, 18.6 Republican

          Actually most cranberry production in U.S. is from Wisconsin @ 65%, 23% of U.S. production is from Mass. the remainder is from N.J. Washington and Oregon.

        JFK was cheating on his wife with a total drunk/drug addict, M Monroe was not “sultry”, she was out of her mind sacked out on barbituates. Joe DiMaggio had to get away from her, she was a total slit when impaired, almost ALL the time. Just watch the “JFK happy birthday” video, stoned/drunk out of her mind.
        Ted should have been thrown UNDER the prison after the Mary Joe Kopec killing.
        The media attributing a ” Kennedy Curse” to those clan members who die suddenly are retarded, the deaths are due to too much money and leisure time, combined with bad decisions. Examples? Playing a downhill sking football game (Kennedy killed when he hit tree during a “play”). Retarded behavior.
        With bad weather looming, taking off in your plane, ONLY knowing VFR flight (visual). Not having IFR knowledge and attempting that flight can be considered suicide, with 2 murders added (for the 2 people John Jr “splashed” his plane with).
        Joe Kennedy made the Kennedy fortune running alcohol during the prohibition years, grabbing other “rum runners” vessels and contriband, and killing his competitors (dropped into the murky depths)
        A truly scummy family.

Joseph “Joe” Patrick Kennedy III, grandson of RFK, will easily be elected based mostly on his name alone; plus being a Democrat in blue, blue Massachusetts. No clue if this Kennedy is a drunk and a womanizer like many in his infamous family. I think his father, Joe Kennedy II, is the one who was “interested” in Joe III & his twin brother’s babysitter. Instead of getting a divorce Joe Kennedy II somehow managed to get his marriage annulled which is a pretty neat trick when you have children with the wife you’re “divorcing”. A trip to the Vatican and a whole lot of money gifted to the Church??? Who knows what goes on inside the wealthy elitist snobs families.

    It isn’t about right or wrong, legal or illegal, constitutional or unconstitutional. It is all about what sells, what gets votes. All the Dimwitocrats have a checklist of demands. Whichever candidate gets the most checks is the one to vote for. Doesn’t even matter if the most important item on the checklist is something the candidate supports, so long as the most items are checked.

    The anti-gun mafia is united on eliminating legal gun ownership; gun owners are not united on keeping them. The anti-gun mob looks at getting even one, minor, gun regulation installed as a victory. The legal gun owners view blocking gun control as to whether it is the kind of block they are interested in.

    With ~100million gun owners, we should never even have to discuss these matters.

    1. avatar I Haz A Question says:

      100 million gun owners, estimated.

      After you subtract the Fudds:
      10 million 2nd Amendment supporters

      After you subtract the keyboard kommandos:
      1 million actual protectors of freedom

      Still a lot of resistance for anyone like Warren to contend with.

      1. avatar Sam I Am says:

        “Still a lot of resistance for anyone like Warren to contend with.”

        Legal gun owners ≠ 2A supporters. In fact, there are a great number of legal gun owners who are comfortable with the idea that because of the advance of history, guns for defense against government is too ancient a concept to matter. I would estimate there are less than 30 million legal gun owners who consider 2A a significant “right”; a number insufficient to pose a serious obstacle to the anti-gun movement. Isn’t it interesting that of all the things that get rousing cheers at a Trump rally, protection for gun owners is rarely mentioned?

        As with many things, people who do not perceive a personal threat presented by a new law are mightily complacent. As an example, in 2017(?), there was a “pro-gun” rally in Tallahassee, FL. The number of attendees, on a Saturday, was estimated at around 500. Tallahassee alone should have been able to muster 500 gun owners. Trump can get 20,000 to a rally, some traveling from other states. When rallies supporting 2A can gather 20,000 legal gun owners, maybe then we can represent a real opposition to the progressives.

        3. avatar Chris says:

          I agree with several of your points but NOT these two:

          a number insufficient to pose a serious obstacle to the anti-gun movement.

          There is no “anti gun movement.” None of these anti-Second Amendment groups/organizations have more than 500 paying members. Not one. It isn’t accurate to call them movements, nor to even call them organizations or groups — they are lobby fronts. Effective astro-turfing. From their side this is all about money. They are highly effective instruments to move dark 501c4 money to campaigns, and tax deductible funding indirectly — on hte order of hundred of millions per cycle. In the case of Dicks and Walmart and 100 major corporations working with the gun control lobby, they also greenwash an large and increasing number of major corporate donors.

          As an example, in 2017(?), there was a “pro-gun” rally in Tallahassee, FL. The number of attendees, on a Saturday, was estimated at around 500. Tallahassee alone should have been able to muster 500 gun owners.

          The groups organizing rallies are helping the gun control/ban advocates. They are rubes who stand in front of a microphone to a crowd of a couple hundred old guys in camo — and prove the gun ban nuts are correct. You do NOT fight on ground of inherent huge advantage to your adversary. Gun ownership is inherently semi-confidential to highly confidential to many many gun owners — especially those who are not rural (where almost everyone owns a gun anyway). So these guys announce rallies and no one comes. you dont get rights from rallies -but with them you can prove your adversary is correct.

          Where our fight wins is in
          a) courts. courts in term are all about one thing: electing Republican presidents and governors. Period. Are there outliers on court appointments, GOP appointments who went the wrong way? yes. but there are exactly zero Democrat court appointees supporting the 2A.
          b) electing Republican legislatures a federal and state level.
          c) a strong national membership lobby, ike it or not, this means NRA

          That’s the facts. Now you may dislike 10 things about trump — or if the impeachment move works, whomever the GOP manages to get on the ticket. I dislike 100 things about Trurmp and the GOP. I am probably to the left of the GOP on quite a few issues and to the right of them on several others. But I am not kidding myself about the real world effects of a Democrat presidency.

          Oh and I will wait for someone to pipe in with ‘bbbbut Trump bbbbump stock” when a reversal of Heller is at stake as are no sunset no grandfather ans of AR, schemes to make gun ownership cost about $1000 more a year, every year, in taxes and insurance, and the entire boat of gun control on track to Australia system no handguns, no semi auto, and “may issue” (prove a need) even for bolt action.

        4. avatar Sam I Am says:

          I understand your line of thought, but voting results do not reflect it. Regardless of the actual numbers of members in anti-gun organizations, the votes tell the story. Anti-2A laws cannot be passed of the majority of the voters disapprove. Refusal to turn-out politicians who vote against the majority interest is no different from active support.

          Call the vector of anti-gun forces what you will, the voters are taking up sides, and we are not getting tired of winning the struggle.

          If we are relying on courts to overturn the popular vote on anti-gun laws, are no different from the progressives we oppose on the grounds that they look to the courts to overturn the result they cannot win at the ballot box. The progressives know the courts are government. Anti-progressives look at the courts as non-political, impartial, objective reviewers of the cases before them

      1. avatar Sam I Am says:

        “Makes you start to wonder about the system when a person keeps winning elections even though you can’t find anyone that will vote for them.”

        This is why voting is supposed to be secret. Asking other people who they voted for is essentially taking an informal “poll”. Polls are notoriously unreliable, and deceitful. Polls can only record responses given, not the intent/truth behind the response. In today’s environment, polls are not even designed to discover opinions, but to drive opinion.

        Even something as seemingly innocent as polling to ask if voters approve/disapprove of someone/something. Think about this. “Do you agree that YouNameIt is doing a good job at Whatever It Is?” Many will answer “No”, because they think YouNameIt is doing the wrong thing. Others will say “No” because the respondent thinksYouNameIt isn’g going far enough. Both responses end up in the disapproval column.

        Take the 2016 election. Polls were screwed up by people either refusing to answer, or answering falsely, only Rasmussen understood that Trump voters were hiding out…and was accurate in projecting Trump would win. Indeed, there were complaints that the actual vote totals were incorrect because exit polls of actual voters were accurate, and did not support the vote tabulations.

        In short, if people don’t want others to know their voting choices, they lie. If I rely on asking only people with the same views as me, I will wonder, “Who voted for that clod?”. If I ask random people, they will likely ask themselves, “Who is this creep, and why should I tell him the truth.” When presented with a polling questionnaire, I just pick the response choices at random, avoiding any sort of pattern. This is especially true if I get paid/compensated for taking a poll.

      It only includes for profits, so I suppose unions would be exempt. The NRA would be exempt as well, as long as they can maintain their non-profit status.

      1. avatar Chris says:

        she doesn’t have non profits excluded. The way to do this, and she probably would, is to is to exclude charities form sanction/taxing. Since the gun ban lobby raises virtually all its money as charity. But legit fundraising groups like NRA could easily be targeted by her proposal.

        The NRA and the gun ocntorl groups have a) general not for proifit status (typically c4) AND b ) subgroups that are “charities” (c3) and subgroups that are PACS

        But the gun control groups are able to do 90% or so of their work as “charities “since ‘gun safety” is a public health/public welfare concern where as gun rights fights by NRA are typically opposition to specific legislation and therefore lobbying. Tens of millions spent on professionally organizing and subsidizing kids at DC and state capitol marches is charitable work. NRA responding by saying “oppose House bill #” is lobbying.

        Any and all 2A groups could be put at a significant disadvantage with new lobbying laws that effectively leave Bloombergs “charities” able to organize marches, strong arm corporations (like dicks and walmart), put hundreds of millions into Johns Hopkins, Harvard and other gun injury and policy study centers and advocate for “gun safety” and “anti firearms violence” under c3-charity compliant conditions, whereas the NRA and NSSF has to fight agains those with c4 or pac money which Warren could narrowly regulate and tax.

      If this were to happen, the Warren family has the option of burying her in a matchbox, after an enema is performed on the corpse.
      It seem like a viable option after hearing Fauxcahontis speak. Lyeawatha is SO bursting at the seams with BS, it’s her defining character trait.

    Pochohantas, nor any of the other 20+ Demmies now running will be president. If the Demmies work it right they will impeach both Trump and Pence in a two-fer’ one…they are trying to hook Pence into the Ukraine thing too, if you haven’t noticed, then Pelosi becomes president since Speaker of the House is 3rd. in line, then Pelosi needs a VP, so she names Hillary, then, Pelosi resigns and Hilly finally becomes Pres. Laugh if you will, but that scenario is not totally impossible. Think about it: the Democrats finally turn this once-great nation into a banana republic. They’ve already allowed in most of Central America, so why not?

    1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      When they started talking about Pence I also saw that scenario and it would be a masterful coup EXCEPT for the fact that they will never get 67 Senators or 2/3rds of Senators (53 Rs vs 47 Ds) present to vote to convict Trump AND Pence of at least one article of impeachment consequently unless they can arrange to assassinate Trump and Pence (their only REAL option) Pelosi will have to settle for her “last hurrah” as Speaker and the Hildabeast will have to settle with her delusional “I can surely beat him AGAIN?” bullshit.. She still does not understand that the 2016 winner is in the Oval Office and the LOSER is NOT…

    OK so why is this a bad move from Warren’s point of view? People saying it will harm her electability are just wrong. her electability is all about a) winning the primary and b) getting out her base in the general.

    It is not 1980 where a good 25% of Democrat candidates mostly supported the Second Amendment. Being opposed is the litmus test. And she is phrasing it not as a tax on gun owners but as a tax on companies and lobbying. You and I know it is targeted at the 2A, but they probably tested this and found 100% of Democrats and 1/3 of Republicans agreed. Which for a partisan issue is exactly what any side wants.

    TTAG doesn’t really do articles on how money is raised and spent on this issue. Otherwise readers would know what a huge advantage this is for Democrats.

    On one side, the anti 2A side, massive amount of money are raised and spent as tax deducatable charity, aka 501(c)3. ,b>Gun control is in the main — CHARITY work it is advocacy for public welfare, health, violence prevention.

    Opposing gun control is in the main forced to be lobbying by C4s and pacs. When you oppose a spefic piece of legislation it cant be with charitable money.

    So this will uniquely hurt our side, which is good for Warren and smart long term for the Democrats. There are already IRS rules on the books that give advantage to Bloomberg’s side and this will add more.

    It (and Warren in general) need to be opposed, but the article doesnt explain why she is doing it. They want to choke off giving to candidates by gun companies, lobbying by the NRA and keep the floodgates open for Bloomberg and his ever broadening base of CEOs who now support him and gun control.

    NSS, the gun makers as individual companies, NRA all have to

    Since guns laws don’t work to your liking, and you say tax all guns, lets go to the other extreme. All born in the USA required to go thru weapons training, and must carry a gun at all times.
    I, personal, grow up with Roy Rogers and all the Westerns carrying guns . I do not need or want an AR-15, because my bolt action 308 reaches all it needs to. However, I do not think it is your right to tell us we can not have one if we so choose.
    The bulk of shootings in the USA are done with hand guns not the AR-15. By the way AR stands for Armalite rifles not assault rifle. They have been around since 1958.

    Marxists who infect our government plus the media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States into becoming an unarmed population. Unarmed populations have been treated as slaves and chattel since the dawn of history.
    Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control.
    No matter what any politician or hard-left mainstream media tells you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further gun control: They are lying. If their lips are moving, they are lying about gun control. These despots truly hate America..
    These tyrants hate freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and private property. But the reality is that our citizens’ ownership of firearms serves as a concrete deterrent against despotism. They are demanding to hold the absolute power of life and death over you and your family.
    Ask the six million J ews, and the other five million murdered martyrs who perished in the N azi death camps, how being disarmed by a powerful tyranny ended any chances of fighting back. Ask the murdered martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto about gun control.
    Their single agenda is to control you after you are disarmed. When the people who want to control you hold the absolute power of life and death over your family, you have been enslaved.

      Oops. I read my source wrong. That is $250 million EACH over the past 20 years, meaning an average of over $12 million a year, on average. Still high enough for this to be a non-starter.

    To raise the tax on gun manufactures, Congress would have to amend the Pittman-Robertson Act.
