San Jose Mayor Plans to Tax Citizens 2nd Amendment Right

Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Democratic San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo plans to force gun owners to get insurance and pay an annual $25 fee. Liccardo said, “The fact that there’s a constitutional right attached somewhere to the exercise of a particular activity doesn’t mean it can’t be regulated, taxed, or have a fee imposed.” But Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights and executive director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights said, “If the San Jose City Council actually votes to impose this ridiculous tax on the constitutional right to gun ownership, our message is clear and simple: See you in court.”
