    What about a $500 rebate per gun? I'd dance a jig!!!
    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...

    Damn.
    Here I thought I could get $500 for not owning a gun.
    Because at the moment I don't own one. I could then take that $500 and get a very nice gun.

    You know, in a lot of ways this makes sense! We, the armed, are keeping the country safe from would-be invaders; i.e., the Japanese general who is quoted as saying something to the effect that they didn't do a land invasion here because they knew there was a gun "behind every blade of grass" in the US.

    I hate to be the harbinger of negativity in this thread but i feel it is my civic sheepdog duty to point out the very real consequence of such a tax credit.....

    If you created a credit for owning or buying a gun then that would open up the door for the IRS and other government entities to know what kind of gun/how many you own ect.

    The base idea is ok in theory, but guns + government+ tax credit = horrible mix for regulation to occur.

    Well, Shucks... It's just a lose-lose situation. We want to make a place safer by enticing more law abiding people to arm themselves, but the only way to do that monetarily without appearing forceful is to offer a tax credit. But by offering a tax credit we open up a door for the government to have knowledge about who owns guns.

    What if a state just completely opens up their laws to allow anyone without a felony conviction to legally carry, and the entire country can witness how their crime rate drops significantly, and how all of the liberal scare tactics never come to fruition. Then maybe other states will follow!!

    Oh...wait... Vermont already did that... And it's only worked on Arizona so far. I guess we'll keep riding it out.

    You're right, of course. I guess it's just a brief visit to the land of Oz to imagine what it could be like in a just and reasonable world.
