Joe Biden:"Assault weapons should be illegal." Biden's Gun Agenda Could Cost AR-15 Owners $3.6 Billion in Taxes for Guns They Already Own

"Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes, if this policy were enacted into legislation.

That figure does not even consider other guns that might be deemed “assault weapons” by Democrats, which could also fall under the same provisions of the National Firearms Act.

In addition to the $200 tax, owners of guns that are deemed “assault weapons,” under Biden’s view of the NFA, could also be required to register these weapons with federal authorities, submit their finger prints and photograph, and potentially submit to an FBI background check.

All of this is detailed on Biden’s campaign website"

    Me dino be sick of libtards saying, "Assault weapons! Assault weapons! Assault weapons!"
    Hey, even a shovel can be used to assault someone but a modern day military assault weapon is classified as a firearm that can fire full automatic like an old-fashioned Tommy Gun.
    I've fired a M16 on full automatic in the Marines. It has a selector switch that can also let you fire semiautomatic for one carefully aimed shot at a time.
    An AR-15 cannot fire full automatic. It has a selector switch that only lets you switch the safety off and on. And so there you go. It ain't a freaking assault weapon!
    And to that I'd like to add, "AURGH!
