Democrat Kathleen Williams Proposes A $200 Million Tax On Montana Gun Owners

Montana – -(AmmoLand.com)- Dear Friends,

On August 29th, 2018, candidate for Congress Kathleen Williams told a Kalispell audience that she wants to levy a $200 million tax on Montana gun owners.

Really! Although that's not the way she put it. She said that “high capacity magazines” (over 10 rounds of ammunition) need to be treated legally the same as “sawed off shotguns” and “machine guns.”

These items, you may know, require an application to the BATFE, a nine-month wait, and a $200 tax for each item registered, in order to legally possess them.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that there are 132 million high capacity magazines in private ownership in the US. Given the high density of firearms in Montana, there must be at least one million of the magazines Williams would target in Montana, probably many more.

One million magazines in Montana and a $200 tax for each one by Williams is where Williams' $200 million tax on Montana gun owners comes from.

Wait, you say. Williams is so ignorant about gun laws that she didn't know that her proposal to legally reclassify hi-cap magazines as NFA items would levy $200 million in taxes on Montana gun owners.

Well, if she gets her way and you don't pay the tax on your magazines, some judge will inform you that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Not for you and me, and not for Williams.

If Williams should get elected and get her way about the tax on Montana gun owners, one of the people who would have to pay that tax is Greg Gianforte, our sitting congressman who Williams is trying to unseat. I don't know how many hi-cap magazines Gianforte has, but I know he has some.

It is because I know Gianforte to be a very pro-gun guy, and because of Williams idea for a $200 million tax on Montana gun owners, that I urge you to tell all your friends to support Gianforte in the election that is going on right now.

Sincerely,


Gary Marbut, President

    @JS, I think that Pelosi is going to have her hands full just keeping Ocasio-Cortez lead protesters out of her office.
    What the old, left over democrat party does not understand is that the new violent democratic socialists are going to get rid of the entire DNC, on the way to power.

    @Wild Bill I think she didn’t win the same reason Testor’s opposition didn’t win.They are transplants.She was from kalifornia an gop was from Maryland. I think that is the same reason Manchine of WV got back in both by skin of their teeth.WV gop was from NJ. He done great as AG but it’s just that thought from NJ an same for MT GOP. People from Montana I think are starting to find out where these fruits are from

    She’s a little bit off the California reservation for bunny and tree hugger isn’t she. I’ve know a lot of folks living up there where family hunting sns subsistence hunting are a traditional ways of life. I’ll bet she’s completely in the dark when it comes to firearms and would be unable to describe a maginzings function on a firearm. These city raised people really shouldn’t escape to the outdoors if they’re unwilling to adopt the life style that goes with it. And there’s Enough civil discord without having too prove one’s ignorance in this proposal. What ever happened to… Read more »

    Respecting your “Americans can not be that stupid”, perhaps “ignorant or ill informed”might be more accurate, regarding what might be a significant number thereof, would you care to make a nominal wager, say $1.00? Let me know. The election results in Montana might provide an answer.

    I would agree with the statement that there is NO difference in having a Ten Round Magazine or a 20 per say. The only difference is the ability to be able continue engagement with the target or duration of Firing at a given Target. When using an extended Magazine weight becomes an issue for accuracy. Depends on situation an extended Magazine is being used FOR.

    You’re as dumb as she is! All this is is more regulation of law abiding citizens who are KNOWN to be responsible gun owners. Prohibitive laws do NOTHING to stop the crazies, which are nearly ALL leftists, from committing their crimes. We have laws against insider trading, yet ALL politicians do it. There are laws against sex with minors and sexual assault, yet leftist actors, politicians, athletes, teaches, and priests still do it. We have laws against using certain drugs yet opioid use is rampant. Prohibitive laws do NOTHING but create a massive, rotating door, fraud legal system and prison… Read more »

    Keith W, it looks like you either can’t read or suffer from poor reading comprehension! But as far as your question goes, why should they register their weapons if it isn’t required in their state or by federal law? I know a lot of law-abiding/conservative citizens that don’t register their weapons because it is not LAW in most states, and it is an ILLEGAL/UNCONSTITUTIONAL law in any state that requires it.

    Another cookie cutter replica just like Christine Baloney Fraud. You can look in this woman’s face and see that she is deranged. She reminds me of the area 51 scientist in the movie “Indepence Day”. She needs to be locked away in one of the old mental health hospitals that we used to have many years ago. She would have been a good one to use the electrical shock therapy on. From the looks of her hair she may have already been there done that.

    I guess this person has no idea what a Class III firearm tax is. She represents what happen to WA State and Oregon. Liberal statist from Kalifornia moved north and totally FU’ed the Pacific Northwest. Now they cash out their overpriced west coast properties and move to the Heartland, Montana, and ruin it. Ted Turner, the “Mouth of the South” bought up a bunch of Montana land years ago. Perhaps he is selling it to fellow lunatics.

Add to that, most are males, 15 – 35; how many are drug cartel members; how many are gang members; how many are full bread terrorists and how many have weapons training?

    She is the former wife of a person I knew for years, now deceased. The stepson she helped raise has been institutionalized several times, a true mental basket case, and she is a complete flake herself. She insultingly claims herself as a hunter because the husband hunted birds occasionally. No word on what she did with her husbands guns. She hasn’t the least understanding of firearms or freedoms, just tows the party line anti-2nd Amendment platform as she is told to do, much like Tester. I know her and wouldn’t trust her to feed my fish.

    It strikes me that Williams does not want to win the election. Or perhaps she has made self defeating decisions her entire life. It also strikes me that she is not cognoscente of the danger of using the power to tax as a way to prevent people from exercising their Constitutional Civil Rights. I know … how about a Political Speech Tax!

    Voting is really overrated. We didn’t become a “free country” by voting, and we will not remain one by voting. The “assault weapons” bans, and “large (!) capacity magazine nonsense…we are dying the death of a thousand cuts, my friends. And sooner or later, we all know what is going to have to happen. I don’t want it to, believe it.
