GUN CONTROL GROUPS MUST FOLLOW THE MONEY

On January 1, 2020, I looked into every major gun control organization to see their plan, and I’m sorry to say that while I see calls for “gun safety” and “responsible solutions,” and note that some groups are “supporters of the Second Amendment,”  not one follows the money to see  — and call out – the federal and state wildlife management divisions of government, which are where the excise taxes on firearms and ammunition exclusively go.

I understand that gun control focus is on the criminal use of guns, yet that doesn’t preclude taking aim at the firearm industry’s inextricable link to federal and state government wildlife management departments.

THE FACT IS THAT REGARDLESS OF WHETHER FIREARMS ARE USED LEGALLY FOR HUNTING, OR ILLEGALLY FOR KILLING A HUMAN, THEIR EXCISE TAXES GO TO WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT DIVISIONS OF GOVERNMENT! YES, EXCISE TAXES ON EVERY BULLET, SHOT, RIFLE, HANDGUN, AND ASSAULT RIFLE (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THOSE USED BY POLICE AND MILITARY) END UP IN THE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT DIVISIONS OF OUR GOVERNMENT TO PROMOTE MORE USE OF FIREARMS AND AMMO!

In any serious opposition to firearms, government wildlife management divisions must not be sidestepped as they are the beneficiaries of criminal acts committed with firearms.

Even if gun control groups aren’t concerned about the welfare of individual wild animals, at least we need to stop ignoring where the money goes when a person is killed or wounded, or when property is damaged by firearms.
