    I do believe he is on to something, just needs to evaluate his thinking a little closer. Why not a recycle fee for brass casings, then they could investigate when they are returned after firing.

    Perhaps this idea can be spread to other things by our super intelligent politicans, such as:

    $5.00 tax on hamburger, $10.00 on fries. Purpose: Cure Obesity

    $200.00 tax monthly on exceeded use of utlities. Purpose: Curb energy use.

    %10.00 tax on every gallon of gas used. Purpose: cut down on excessive driving, save oil reserves, etc.


    God, who knows what wonderful things this can lead to.

    Bob Becktel, Fox news "The Five" said, bullets should be taxed $10.00 per bullet. I never knew he was a former cocaine addict.
    I wish Fox would do a better job on screening some of their people.

    Otis is still an idiot. Does he really think the criminals will walk in and PAY for bullets?? Not a very well thought out statement or plan.
