How about a 10% tariff on gun manufacturers?
Tarrif on gun manufacturers would be a good idea. Don't have any figures at hand but I figure they are the source of most of the slaughter worldwide.
... wouldn't that be a tax not a tarrif? Who manufacures the most weapons?
Why would you want to put such a tax on gun manufacturers? The only people that would get hit with such a tax is the law abiding citizens. Criminals don't care about taxes, nor do they care about laws. Guns don't slaughter people, people slaughter people.
Taxing guns at their origin it would affect all users, legit or not, and probably decrease the number of guns in circulation. People in general got suckered into the glory of gun ownership by gun manufacturers and their NRA publicity arm, they're the ones flooding the market without regards of who really ends up with them. We need more guns to protect ourselves from guns!
It's the same familiar story we keep seeing: cigarettes, opioids.
