ME: ‘Supporting a Second Amendment tax’

In Kennebunk, we’ve allocated over $400,000 for this measure which translates to a “hidden,” annual Second Amendment tax of about $40 for taxpayers.

I enthusiastically support the measure, but know it will come at a cost of either eliminating school programs, teacher raises, or adding another tax increase. So the NRA has won another round in the Second Amendment debate while we legislate a remedy for the symptoms rather dealing with the disease.

There are over 300 million guns in the U.S., owned mostly by non-NRA members like myself. But somehow, a small chorus of 6 million NRA members have convinced us to accept this hidden tax while they protect their “no compromise on any reasonable gun legislation.”

The only thing this scribe got right was "These shootings are as much about a lack of security as they are about stalking “targets of opportunity” at schools, malls, theaters or churches."

TARGETS OF OPPORTUNITY.

As long as schools remain victim disarmament zones, these shootings will continue.

The solution is to allow law abiding citizens to be armed in schools and other venues. And it would not cost taxpayers a nickel.

I also resent as an NRA member being blamed for the behavior of others over whom I have no control.
