The Power to Tax and Regulate Guns is the Power to Disarm Women and Minorities
The world has changed. Racial minorities are buying guns for lawful self-protection more than ever before. Urban women are the fastest-growing segment of legal gun owners. That is wonderful news and long overdue. Tempering that good news are the unfortunate conditions in our inner cities that may have provided new motivations to own a gun. Recently we’re seeing gun-prohibitionist Democrats propose huge taxes on guns just as minority members of society become gun owners. We’ve seen this political behavior before, and politicians repeat behavior that works. It looks like Democrat politicians are doing it again, and racism and political advantage are always wrapped in the excuses of public safety.
