He has the right idea only the wrong product.
There should be a surtax on Rap music sales, expensive sneakers, pants that don't fit, and gold teeth.
And a HUGE surtax on televisions. Lets not forget automobiles. You can't have a driveby without an automobile. If all cars were registered there would be no drivebys!

Its the basic politician government philosophy: Any crisis can be used to generate money whether it helps or not.
They'll probably use it to add a new agency.

Maybe if the bullets were so expensive the gangs would not spray the streets. They might be more inclined to make well placed shots which would in turn reduce the number of stray rounds and thus save innocent bystanders.

Great idea (sarcasm off)

So, why does the legal gun owner have to pay for Law Enforcement's inability to police its own streets ??
