bullet control and charged $5000 per bullet, people would still feel "protected" but fewer deaths would occur?
There's a ruder version of this argument, which I can't link to.
Do you think the argument has any merit?
I think it has merit. I have 1200 rounds and if I sell 1195 at 5 grand apiece that will give me a big chunk of money and I will still have 5 rounds which will be more than enough to take care of business.
Gun Control = Using BOTH hands and HITTING what you aim at.
Or so they taught us in the Army.
A recent proposal in the Chicago area to tax bullets at 5 cents per bullet was defeated, but a deal was struck to put a tax of $25 per gun sale instead.
The concept has merit. Making it harder to own guns might also have a lot of merit, too.
Today was the start of firearm Deer season.

Other than that, Uncle Sam took all the fun out of it.
