Manasquan, NJ --(Ammoland.com)- Anti second amendment advocates, LUCINDA M. FINLEY and JOHN G. CULHANE recently wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times, titled “Make Gun Companies Pay Blood Money“, promoting that people exercising their constitutional right to keep and bear arms be made to pay a tax, that could then be used to pay victims of gun violence.

“GUN manufacturers have gone to great lengths to avoid any moral responsibility or legal accountability for the social costs of gun violence — the deaths and injuries of innocent victims, families torn apart, public resources spent on gun-related crime and medical expenses incurred.”

“But there is a simple and direct way to make them accountable for the harm their products cause. For every gun sold, those who manufacture or import it should pay a tax. The money should then be used to create a compensation fund for innocent victims of gun violence.”

Question: Never mind the issue of taxing a constitutional right, but is the authors definition of “victims” the same as Mayor Michael Bloomberg who recently list the Boston Marathon Bombers in a list of so called “victims of gun violence“?

In an almost comical side note the authors go on to point out that the “Tax” would stop manufactures from marketing “especially lethal guns” as aggressively and concentrate more on marketing “Safer Guns”. What are they talking about?

Any gun can be dangerous in the hands of person bent on harming others, and no gun is more dangerous than another.

Maybe we should have a Stupid Tax with the proceeds going to victims of stupid ideas.

      NEW JERSEY SCUMBAGS.

    3. If your home was being invaded by burglars who came to do you harm, and steel your stuff, and the man of the house shot and killed them, is that gun violence to you? I can’t think of any crimes being committed by registered gun owners.

      When one of my guns is used to harm someone, then we can talk about me paying for the injuries of crime victime=s. The only people that my guns will harm is those that try to harm me or my family. Then they won’t need medical attention. They will need funeral services.

    5. I would also ask … I taxes express the HIGH moral road would we then tax Abortion clinics the same way, manufacturers of lighters and matches to pay arson victims, Sugar refineries and candy makers for the diabetics damaged by their products? How about the booze and vehicle industries not only mixed together but each on their own have higher body counts. The list could go on forever. This is and OLD idea that somehow if you make it a SIN for all than of course the wealthy can afford to sin. Regulation of MPORALITY for those who can’t afford to use their own minds. In a word STUPID.

      I need to find me one of those there “safe guns” so I can display it next to my ADT sticker on the window of my living room, that way, if the bad guy(s) get a hold of that gun, I’ll be safe while they’ll be in danger of meeting my “especially lethal gun” and meeting their maker next.

      I really like the idea of a Stupid Tax. When going to the polls and voting for Democratic Party candidates, each vote costs the voter $1000.00, charged at the time of voting. Cash or credit card. It would be amazing how smart the stupid people get when they vote. The funds collected would go to those suffering from the costly and unjust effects of the IRS, EPA, Obama Care, Amnesty …..

    8. Automobile manufacturers have gone to great lengths to avoid any moral responsibility or legal accountability for the social costs of car violence — the deaths and injuries of innocent victims, families torn apart, public resources spent on car-related crime and medical expenses incurred.

      But there is a simple and direct way to make them accountable for the harm their products cause. For every car sold, those who manufacture or import it should pay a tax. The money should then be used to create a compensation fund for innocent victims of car violence.

    9. Haha, this that proposal is going to go no where.
