“Not sure if this is true but if it is vote NO!!

House Bill H.R 5717 will add 30% tax on all guns and a 50% tax on all ammoand will require a fed license to purchase both , this is trying to pushed thruimmediately !!! Pass this on and vote NO !!. Also it says you would need this federal license to own handle or shoot any guns you all ready own !!!

Please pass this on to everyone you know!!!”

I just read it... reads like it was written by the Politburo.  Perhaps all the cosponsors are members as well... I saw some names that are of pure Marxist philosophy.  It reeks of unconstitutionality.  
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living
