Prohibition doesn't work; tax luxury guns, ammo

From the Casper Trib online:

The Wyoming Department of Revenue has suspended sales tax collections from gun shows because of increasing animosity toward the state's field tax agents. Dan Noble, director of the department's excise tax division, said Friday that an incident at a gun show triggered the decision. He added, however, that resistance from gun show sponsors and participants has been a recurring problem statewide. "I have 10 field reps throughout the state, and every one of them has experienced some animosity," he said. "Folks are nervous anyway because there are guns there. I don't want to put my people at risk."
Red states are not going to fix their own problems.  Guns are like lawyers; you carry one around long enough and sooner or later you're going to use it.

Only We the People can slow these people down.   Local law enforcement is only as effective as a legislature wants it to be.

Raise the taxes on non-hunting rifles, certain handguns and extended clips.
