    H.R.5717 - Alert

    We're about to take it without lube if this get through.
    There are related bills as well.

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-...ouse-bill/5717

    Here's a little taste:

    Sec. 4181. IMPOSITION OF TAX.

    “There is hereby imposed upon the sale by the manufacturer, producer, or importer of the following articles a tax equivalent to the specified percent of the price for which so sold:

    “(1) Articles taxable at 30 percent:

    “(A) Pistols.

    “(B) Revolvers.

    “(C) Firearms (other than pistols and revolvers).

    “(D) Any lower frame or receiver for a firearm, whether for a semiautomatic pistol, rifle, or shotgun that is designed to accommodate interchangeable upper receivers.

    “(2) Articles taxable at 50 percent: Shells and cartridges.”.

    Why is it that those that know the least, know it the loudest?

    The link I posted might not work, so try this one.

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-...ouse-bill/5717.

    This won't pass, I hope, but it sure tells you where they are in regards to the Second Amendment.
    Not that it's any sort of surprise.

    Your link worked fine. I was just so taken aback after reading it. Its like the $5million bloomburg is spending (again) to promote anti gun legislation in AZ. we're a weird state. We have some of the most free laws when it comes to guns, but we also have one of the biggest cities in america, and A LOT of implants from very very blue states. So if they flip AZ, they stand a chance to flip other states as well.
