Democrats and Guns, Again

If we needed any additional evidence that Democrats and guns don't mix, we only need look at Seattle Washington, who last year enacted a tax on the sale of guns and ammunition within the city, ostensibly to fund research on gun violence.  The results were both pedictable and consistent with what we know about Democrat-governed areas of our country.
Comparing the first five months of 2017 with the same period before the gun tax went into effect, reports of shots fired are up 13 percent, the number of people injured in shootings climbed 37 percent and gun deaths doubled, according to crime statistics from the Seattle Police Department…
And, they don't want to talk about it.
Seattle officials refuse to say how much the tax brought in the first year, only giving the number “under $200,000.” Gun rights groups have sued to get the exact amount. 
Once again, Democrats are using the wrong tactics, targeting the wrong people, and causing more harm than good.  Tax-the-hell out of guns and ammo and watch gun violence increase in your city.  Who would have figured that?  Well, anyone with a working brain.

I am becoming more and more convinced that simply being a Democrat is evidence of a mental defect.

the tax was meant to close down Seattle gun stores......there didn't want money for gun research, they know that the tax would make it impossible for gun stores to stay was nothing more than back door gun banning.....
