At work a friend and I were talking, and he told me that Pres. Bush was planning a Tax on firearms shortly, I told him he must be mistaken as I haven't heard anything about it here,or anywhere else, Sooo, what's the straight dope? I suspect this is an old issue that was shot down, and my friend has just heard about it, anybody know one way or the other? or is this some Demo-commie dis-information?

There already is a federal excise tax on firearms, but any additional taxes imposed upon guns by Bush would be a "reasonable and common sense lesser of 2 evils".

Your friend is full of it. He's rumormongering in the grand tradition of Imbroglio et al.

From American Handgunner May/June 2002 page 112 "$123,100,00 Excise tax paid on firearms and ammunition in the first 3 quarters of 2001, down 15% from the same period in 2000."
