    Dave Workman chimed in this very thing. in a currentf Examiner article.

    CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb calls H.R. 3018 “confiscatory taxation.” It is sponsored by Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-IL) and Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ)

    I was just coming to post about this very same thing. Here is the article about it that I saw on Fox News just now. Here's just one quote from the article:

    Davis, who represents a portion of Chicago which has been ravaged by gun violence in recent years, said money raised from the new taxes will go to good use.
    A few other things is that it will increase the tax on guns and ammo from 11% to 50%, increase the NFA tax from $200 to $500 AND have it adjust for inflation, and increase the AOW transfer tax from $5 to $100.

    Will not apply to any branch of any government that needs a gun to perform their duties.

    Now for some fun with words.

    The government claims we can trust them because we are the government (I disagree I am not droning kids, killing people and their pets in unconstitutional no knock warrants, listening in on your phone calls...etc) and since we the people have the duty as a branch of government to be armed and keep the other branches in check this does not apply to civilians either.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    I like this kind of thinking. The People as a Branch of the Government. I think it goes....."By the People, for the People......"
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    no branch of the government (maybe the military) needs a gun to preform their duties
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
