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

        1. @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.

          1. @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

    1. Just when ya think it’s going to be a boring day, some liberal goes & says or does somethin’ stoopid…never fails!

    2. No explanation needed. Just another blatant and obvious slippery slope that Congressional Sozial Demokrats are on record as wanting for the sole purpose of making citizens incapable of defending themselves from the vicious lawless acts of intolerant tyrants

    3. To make a statement like that in Kalispell, where last time I looked had around 30 firearms and accessory manufacturers, was beyond stupid.

      1. 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 equality, it’s to easy for these democrats to propose laws that will never apply to themselves.

      1. 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.

      2. When you are indoctrinated with it as a child, you don’t know any better as an adult. If you were taught as a child that trees eat people, as an adult you’d stay out of the woods! We are seeing the result of communism and the pot heads of the 60-70s that infiltrated all forms of government.

    4. Another example of how far the Democrat party has degenerated in the last fifty years. I have no doubt that common sense voters in her district will reject this lunacy.

      1. They used to throw sickos like this down the well never to be seen again. The DEMONrats have finally peppered the American political system and every state with their puppets. The Saul Alinsky plan is working…unless we do something to correct it.

    5. 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.

      1. 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 system.

        Do you seriously believe that even if this magazine law is put into effect that all of those magazines will get registered? Nearly ALL criminal shootings in this country are done by perps who have violated a gun law! Like I said, you’re as dumb as she is!

          1. 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.

      1. That insane cat lady just got off the crazy train from Cali, I would run her out of town before more show up. Now I am going to have nightmares

    6. Where are all of these idiots coming from? Are the demoRats brainwashing their candidates? We have one just as crazy running for Governor in Georgia. She is as nutty as squirrel poop.

        1. Exactly, the magazine deal is just one step towards total confiscation. Anyone knows that the capacity of a magazine has no effect. Anyone who thinks that it does is delusional. Did I just describe her?

      1. @HS, They come from the educational system. We send normal kids to kindergarden and 16 years later they come out programed with an appropriately designated BS degree.

        1. 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.

    7. Could it possibly be that the pained expression on this woman’s face is the by-product her idiotic, quite possibly illegal, in the unconstitutional sense of the term, ideas? One is given to wonder.

    8. 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.

      1. I’m surprised leftists haven’t used this video to prove that ALL magazines should be banned.

        We are in a time that God/Jesus warned us about – he told us about those who would see good as evil and evil as good; he warned us of behemah (negros) creating chaos and wanting to be equal with man (they are NOT of Adamic lineage); he warned us of the many who would come in his name and deceive us; he warned of wars and rumors of wars and earth quakes in divers and various places; he warned of the famine and pestilence — Pres. Trump is the calm before the storm! And many more — we will soon meet the same fate as Sodom and Gomorrah.

        Ecclesiastes 10:2 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left

    9. They are coming in,Montana, you need to find out where these fruits come from. You didn’t check on her,there is also one in Missoula,President of board.He slipped through the cracks.Ckeck these people out before you vote

    10. Guns…? Naaahhh…don’t have them anymore……all mine fell into the lake last time I went fishin’. BUT…I will vote with you current ‘gun-owners’, just because I am so nice………

    11. Another far leftist from kalifornia trying to destroy our rights. It never surprises me with the far out drug induced ideas they come up with. Some, if not all of these gun banning commie groups are being funded by george soros and micheal bloomberg and foreign governments that want to desyroy and then take over America. Now they are brain wadhing teens to become the new Hitler Youth, do your neighbors have guns? Turn them in! Become a snitch. Now there is a group of women who dont want the usa to go to war with any cpunyry, surrender first. Wow, i guess Hitler would have won ww2 if these gun banning far leftist were around back then. People forget that the usa had send a gun to England back in ww2 to help fightt against a german invasion because england had banned guns. The japs were afraid to invade America in ww2 because all those Americans pwned guns and would defend their country. So doesnt it sound like some foreign country is behind this gum banning movement in America? Fight these evil, gun banning, New World Order groups!

      1. It is the “Kalergi Plan” in action. Do you see all those South Americans caravaning their way here ? That will be the army that will be sent door to door to confiscate your guns in a few years. All those reading this had better google “The Kalergi Plan” so you will know what’s going on. This is what they already did to Europe with turd world people. Now it is our turn. If you want to know who is behind it, google “Mrs. Specter From Sweden”, and you can hear her tell you who is behind it, from her own mouth. And you watch Trump very closely. Constitutionally, he has the power to call out the MILITIA for the purpose of repelling an invasion. Why he has not done so is because he has been beholden to the very people who Mrs. Specter speaks about, the ones who are our real enemies, and who have been robbing us blind for over a century now. And now that we are broke and on the verge of collapse, “they” will import a very large problem for us to deal with so we don’t have time to seek justice against them, and it will create a smokescreen that will facilitate their escape. Just like with his promises of the WALL, so far he has been full of words and no actions. If he allows this first wave to roll in without putting the National Guard AND the MILITIA on the border, then you know he is purposely standing down. Just like the Mexican police did. And a second and third wave are now forming.

        1. Thank you for this information. I have also been very disturbed Trump really has done nothing. Send only 800 troops to the border? Against what is now about 15,000 invaders? They are outnumbered. 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?
          He goes around to rallies, criticizes everyone, makes fun of them, gets the audience worked up but when it comes to actually DOING something here…… thank goodness I can carry. I will not hesitate to defend my life or those of family and friends. Frankly, I have become an anarchist over the last few years because I see how politicians, 2/3rds or more are lying lawyers, never represent US, only their own self-interests. Sure, occasionally they throw us a bone or two but for decades have failed to do the job we hired them for. No thanks.
          Add to that, in spite of what we know of them, mostly democRATS, NO ONE IS IN PRISON. The former PIMP in the WH all the way down to local democrats, no one is in prison. Fake Russian Dossier, Russian Uranium One deal, fake charges against Kavanah…. the list goes on and NO ONE is in prison. Probably never will be. I have lost a lot of faith in Trump these past couple of months.
          And we’re told to vote GOP? The lesser of 2 evils but evil nonetheless.

    12. 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.

    13. What is so stupid about this argument between having a 10 load mag or a 30 load mag is there IS NO difference…just a few more bullets….I makes NO difference between the two mags…

    14. 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!

    15. 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. But those brilliant, well-read, and prescient dead white men did not include the second amendment if they did not fear a mobocracy (also known as a democracy) running the circus. They read (something few Americans have time for, with shoppiing and watching “Dancing with the Stars”, or whatever it is.

      Sorry to cheer you up after a long night shift as a rent-a-cop, in spite of degrees and licenses in nuclear and mechanical engineering. If you don’t fit in (as in talking about how your range time went over the weekend with your wife), you will be culled from the herd. These days, if anyone asks me if I own guns, or have any interest, I just say that I shot my Dad’s old .22 when I was a kid. That’s all. The same with do I drink. No. Do I own guns? No. It is becoming dangerous to even speak your mind. And that is why I fear a violent finish to these ridiculous gun arguments. I may not live to see it, but I am getting along in years, and have experienced, seen, and read very much.

      My best wishes to you true Americans who “get it”.

    16. This woman looks like a holdover from the Hippie days, fight back Montana gun owners get this woman out of politics.

      1. @MB, Yeah, she just does not dress or hold her bearing like someone that I would want to turn over power to. I sure hope that the Patriots of Montana have good weather so that they can get out and vote.

        1. @ W. Bill and MB actually she looks like a homeless bag lady that sleeps under the bridge. Is this the best the democrats have to go along with their no platform?

            1. @ W. Bill that’s funny but could be very true. She is chomping at the bit to get back in there. Three strikes and you’re out.

    17. Montanans, get out and vote or lose your rights to these left wing freaks. Anyone that thinks reduced capacity magazines will do anything to deter crime or violence is deluded. Don’t fall for the ‘fake news’. Vote!

    18. I’m not a Montanan, but after numerous visits, I wish I was.
      I propose that all former birkenstock-clad Californians (who have moved to western states) be grabbed by the scruff of the neck and hurled over The Wall ….back into the sh*t-pit they’ve created there.

      Any that remain will have a bounty on them, hunted down like the socialist vermin they are.

      I hope you read this, Kathleen Williams.

    19. It’s no wonder that a useless Democrat feminist wants to restrict the rights of the people who made this country great. Here’s another reason why conservative men need to be elected to Congress.
