    This is a Federal bill that has been introduced into the US House of Representatives by Rep DeLauro, Rosa L. (CT-3). HR 226
    Referred to committee on Ways and Means.

    "To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to allow a credit against tax for surrendering to authorities certain assault weapons."

    So now our tax dollars will go to buy guns?

    Check this part of it,,,,,,,,Oh, yeah,,,,,,they aren't going to come after "our trap guns"..........

    And this part in the tax credit proposal is really insidious; "" a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.".

    If those in gov do not like the firearm because it is used by the military or law enforcement, i.e. Remington 700, it could be considered to be an assault weapon and subject to this payback tax credit.

    How you boys feel about your 870's, M2's, 1100's now,,,,,,seems the military and police like to use those,,,,,,must be assault weapons.......
