"Otis Rolley said he would, if elected, propose a $1 per bullet tax on all bullet purchases in the city. The idea was part of an overall crime plan he unveiled Tuesday.
|"Encoded Ammunition"/Bullet Serialization|
"Encoded Ammunition" (Bullet and Cartridge Case Serialization) Means:
* Forfeiture of Currently-Owned Ammunition
* A Separate Registration for Every Box of New Ammunition
* Outrageously Expensive Ammunition Costs for Police & Private Citizens Alike
*A Waste of Taxpayer Money, Better Spent on Traditional Police Programs

Wrong! Lawbreakers don't buy guns legally except from YOUR GOVERNMENT! That's why they call them "lawbreakers" - because the law has no bearing on their decision-making process - whether it is now - or later - whether new laws are in place or not.
The idea is not necessarily to "use" our firearms to institute change - but to never forget the concept of "mutually assured destruction" (M.A.D.) - the same method of power balance our own government employed to maintain a check on Soviet nuclear power.
Is it not reasonable to use the same logic when it comes to maintaining a check on Federal power vis a vis We The People?
Let's stick with the second amendment shall we?
