Default Bullet tax of $1.00 will help prevent bad people from buying ammo!

THIS GUY IS A GENIUS!! This will surely curb crimes in this country!

BALTIMORE -- A mayoral candidate's plan to reduce violence in Baltimore includes a "bullet tax" that he said will increase the cost of committing a crime.

Otis Rolley said he would, if elected, propose a $1 per bullet tax on all bullet purchases in the city. He also said he wants to improve recruitment standards and training for the Baltimore City Police Department, work closely with the media to increase awareness of wanted suspects, and reduce the number of vacant properties.
Rolley released his plan Tuesday, citing recent holiday violence at the Inner Harbor and the city's reputation as one of the most violent in the country as reasons for change.

"It is unacceptable that too many of us feel unsafe in own city, own neighborhoods, even in our own homes," he said.

As for the bullet tax, Rolley said the measure would cause a decrease in "random firings that too often happen around holidays" and put a high price tag on the cost of committing a crime.

"While the courts have consistently ruled against significant gun control legislation, there is still a way to decrease crime: substantially increase the cost of its commission," Rolley's plan states.

"Increasing the cost of guns won't work, because many criminals don't purchase new guns, and they can be borrowed or even rented in some areas," his plan states.

Rolley, a Democrat, served as the city's planning director from 2003 to 2007.

The primary will be held in September.

since when does a criminal go to a gun store and buy ammo? last i checked, stealing weapons and ammo was the first step of committing any decent type of crime. step 2 is trying to find a ski mask that fits.

Maybe politicians should pay a 1$ for every word they speak publically. This would eliminate majority of stupid ideas.

Many years ago Saginaw City pretty much over regulated ammo sales right out of the city. Not that it changed the murder stats any by making people drive a mile or two further to the townships for ammo.

Completely retarded legislation.

Reminds me of the Chris Rock bit where he suggests bullets cost $5000 each.
