Did I say ban?

No.

Your ban list lojik failz on 2 levelz:

1. A gun cant be uzed for any practical and essential purpose besidez killing, like all the other itemz you are comparing it to.

2. If gunz were banned & rounded up, making the bat wielder the alfa male, its still a better situation than having gunz everywhere. Its hard for a guy swinging a bat to kill you from 1000 yardz, no matter how strong he iz. He'd haf to throw it, and anybody who can throw a bat 1000 yardz duznt need a bat.

Seattle just passed a law similar to the GIT. http://www.seattle.gov/council/issues/gunsafety/

The NRA immediately filed a suit.

Started another petition with a different organization. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/gun-incident-tax

Hopefully, they will put it in their 'promote' catagory, unlike the last organization.

Stephan Paddock haz provided a case to analyze.

I believ it supports the GIT.

Supoz the GIT had been enacted not long after I propozed it 5 yirz ago. Even tho he iz a 'multimillionaire' he woud probably not hav been able to afford the arsenal he uzed in the hotel, let alone all the other gunz he had at hiz homez. The tax iz proportional to the value uv the gunz and related itemz sumwun ownz and, being based on the far greater cost uv gun insidents, woud hav made hiz collection unaffordable.

Uv course, he coud still hav dun it with 3 or 4 gunz or just 1 very well made gun and sum luck, but hiz chansez uv doing az much damaj woud be redused. He didnt lug all that hardware up there for nothing.
