Default 65 dollars a gun for Illinois residents.

I hope this doesn't get through, but those in IL may want to start looking at moving if it does.

It is called taxing you out of your guns.

Didn't we have a Tea Party in Massachusetts because of BS like this I can't remember since American History has become a Taboo and the school system has to be tolerant and we spent more time learning about Cinco de milo

New York has had this for a while, now. You can't do a FTF sale in New York for handguns, so every handgun is registered, it's S/N goes on your permit, and you have to pay the County Clerk whenever you buy or sell a handgun.

Getting a permit takes 6 months or more and the grand total for the application, finger prints, photos, etc. is around $150 in Monroe County where I live.

The one ray of good news is once you get your very expensive permit, you keep it for life.

That's one of the numerous weapons the anti-gunners have up their sleeve. If they can't succeed at outright banning the guns, they just make them too expensive to own. Just like the BS ammo tax the dems tried to pass a while back.

Hopefully I'll be gone from this state by then...

Yeah and it expires every 5 years. God forbid you have a HUGE collection and don't renew your tax bill for your guns, you will probably wind up in prison for 15-20 years. Let's hope those Crook County voters do some house cleaning this election cycle.

Another case of The State of Chicago and The City of Illinois. The state is broke, and so is the city so they will do anything to get money. Anything that is except getting the crooked, money grubbing politicians out of office. We residents of Illinois need to bad together and VOTE these people out. The main problem is that the Chicago Dems. have all the minority votes sealed up. They pay people in the minority neighborhoods to vote, hell they set up buses to bring them to polling places. It's sad when the whole state votes one way, but Cook County and Cook gets its way.
