It is amazing how disconnected to reality and the causes and effects Liberals are. Their lack perspective, sense of proportions and common sense is staggering. They truly walk in Darkness. Pray to the Lord for the light to see and you'll no longer be a Liberal.

A tax commensurate to such a risk would be fractions of a cent, and more than compensated for by crimes deterred. Do the math.

That's a smashing idea. Over-extend the force of government to punish the people with .. the weapons that could actually succeed in overthrowing said government? That's like refusing to feed the lion you have to sleep with.

guns at home are no "risk" to others. they're inert objects, they only fire when a HUMAN pulls the trigger.

Thus,the "risk" is that human.

No, I'm serious.
You can't compare the risk of guns @ home with hand tools & lawn mowers. It's not the same thing.
Let's see with such a tax who would really want to own guns :)

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Police Department held a gun buy back and paid people $100-$200 in gift cards as an incentive to participate. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called the buy back a way to fight crime although criminals do not participate in buy back programs. From Reuters:

Police officers handed out $200 grocery store gift cards to people who turned in an automatic weapon, and $100 gift cards to those who provided a handgun, rifle or shotgun.

Los Angeles has held an annual gun buyback since 2009, and similar events have been organized...
