This is not the way to enact greater gun control. The problem is not that guns and ammunition are too cheap, but that they are too unregulated and too freely accessible. We need enforcement of universal and stronger background checks without loopholes for major access points like gun shows. We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines for civilian purchase. We need to increase the age limit to purchase rifles. We need to ban all devices that mimic the function of automatic weapons. Raising taxes on guns is an easy proposal, but it's not the right solution.
