LaFave off base

EDITOR:

Representative Beau LaFave does it again, making a stupid statement about taxes. His right to free speech, right to vote, right to counsel in trial, and right to bear arms are not being taxed. What is being taxed are manufactured product, guns and ammunition, which are taxed when sold at the retail level like most products. If the taxes on the purchase of the firearms puts such a burden on the purchaser, he probably can’t afford to purchase those items anyway.

If you can’t afford these items, call law enforcement in these situations if the need for protection is needed. Law enforcement has a pretty good track record.
