Democrats: IRS can pay gun owners to turn in their guns

A Democrat lawmaker is going to introduce a bill next week designed to relieve Americans of burdensome taxes in exchange for their guns.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., is introducing the Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of Our Streets Act, which will offer tax credits of up to $2,000 for those who chose turn in their weapons to local police departments.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”

DeLauro stressed that the new act would strictly work on a volunteer basis and will help “get more assault weapons off the streets.”

It’s not a wild stretch of the imagination to assume that mass murderers aren’t going to be turning in their weapons – and just might not pay taxes in the first place.

However, this isn’t the congresswoman’s first attempt at disarming law-abiding citizens. She is a strong supporter of stricter gun laws that would ultimately ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to The Hill.

DeLauro’s latest attempt at gun grabbing comes after a string of assaults against the Second Amendment, including an unsuccessful attempt by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to ban AR-15 ammunition, and the expose of Operation Choke Point – a backdoor plan to cut off financial support for gun store owners.

This is DeLauro’s second attempt at passing the bill, which first failed in 2013. She will officially re-introduce it next week with the help of co-sponsors, Reps. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., Raul Grijalva D-Ariz., Elijah Cummings D-Md., Keith Ellison D-Minn., Eric Swalwell D-Calif., and David Cicilline D-R.I.
