Why Gun Confiscation May be Good for You

Let’s take a look at the silver lining in the cloud that is gun confiscation. Try to remember: nothing is all bad.

Economics are a big consideration. Black market guns will likely be cheaper than they were at the gun shop or sporting goods store. And no more serial numbers on guns or any of that silly paperwork to fill out.

There will be a market driven “trickle down” effect on the end user’s price. To your benefit.

Doncha see? There are at least 65 million gun owners in America today. That’s probably as large a percent of the nation as ignored alcohol Prohibition. 65 million potential customers for black market guns is an awfully attractive business opportunity. And used-to-be gun owners will be seriously motivated buyers. Having someone disarm you is a little more edgy than being told you can’t have a beer. Well … that may be stretching it. But you get my point.

Since the Federal Government won’t be able to license or tax illicit guns (just like they don’t tax crack cocaine, more about or pot, web or trailer park meth) guns will be cheaper right off the bat! Presently, generic gun makers have to pay a ten percent excise tax on every gun they manufacture. Not on every gun they sell … on every one they make. That cost gets passed on to you. Not so with a black market.
