Chicago/Cook County Penalizes Legal Gun Owners

So to try and counter their blatant incompetence in keeping crime down and managing their own budget, the Cook County, IL board (puppets of the Chicago machine) 'generously' dropped the proposed ammo tax and are only taxing firearms at $25 ea. all to pay the medical costs of the people shot in 'gun violence', 70% of which are criminals.  

One should note the timing on this is strictly political. Friday. To bury the story (and the other associated taxes they passed) through the weekend and the offices are closed so no/few people will call in to voice their displeasure.  By Monday the only people that are going to talk about it are the gunnies.

They know they can't get support for these measures through legitimate means so they have to deceive and manipulate. That is SOP for gun control.

I found the two posts to be amusingly related. First we have this from the news story linked:

"The tax is expected to raise $600,000 in revenue in 2013."

Then we have this from the very next story on your blog:

"A copy of the $663,294.10 check from the City of Chicago can be view here"

LOL, it is not unlikely that Chicago will have to pay even more in attorney fees to an NRA lawyer who takes on this gun tax.
