Comments: Illinois Is Too Taxing For Gun Owners

If there's anyone with gonads left there, they should offer up a 10-cent per word speech tax.

Hey, it isn't a restriction on speech. Right?

Never mind whether it is 10 cents a bullet or 10 cents a cartridge, if their estimate on the projected "revenue" is correct then only 2.5 million "bullets" are sold in Cook county in 1 year.
With a population of 5.3 million that works out to 1 bullet per 2 people per year. How could that be possible? I hear tell the place is littered with gun fearing wussies, but at that low of a rate of ammunition consumption how can any one even be exposed to guns enough to even develop a fear of guns?
