Let's see. Increasing a tax on a gun or its ammunition will somehow cause the FBI and local cops to do their jobs? THEY LOOKED THE OTHER WAY, PEOPLE! "If you see something, say something," is the mantra. Well people did say something to both the sheriff department and the FBI, and they did nothing. Even the shooter himself said something; he said he was going to do it! And the NSA is scooping up untold volumes of data - voice, text and graphic, and analyzing it all with the most powerful computers on Earth and yet this happens. Sorry, somebody in a position to stop him chose not to. A few years back, FBI agents even followed the two shooters who were driving to the Muhammad cartoon event in Dallas with plans to shoot it up, and they did nothing to stop them. Why? (It was a local cop who stopped that massacre from happening. God bless him.) What on Earth will an additional tax do? NOTHING! Some "law enforcement" officials will continue to, with full cognizance, allow these things to happen to advance an agenda. Wake up. You think the Fast and Furious gun running operation by Obama's DOJ was an isolated action by "a few rogue agents" too, don't you? Quit accepting everything at face value. There are some in government who want more control over you, and they'll do things or allow things to happen, which will ensure that you'll gladly accept it. They'd rather you volunteer for slavery than have to force you into it, because force will awaken you. Please, don't doubt what I say. Just research more, reason, and question.
