With today’s Supreme Court ruling that The Affordable Care Act is constitutional it is now unquestionably time for those members of congress representing Conservative Americans to write and pass a law requiring all American Citizens over the age of 18 to purchase or show proof of ownership of a firearm or suffer a massive tax penalty.
The SCOTUS ruled that the Commerce clause could not be used to require citizens to purchase health insurance, but that congress as so accorded in the United States Constitution could levee a tax against any citizen that did not engage in a financial transaction that was deemed by congress as necessary and proper.
Unlike healthcare which cannot be found mentioned in any place in the United States Constitution, the ownership of a firearm is not only explicitly enumerated in the 2nd amendment as a right, it is likewise implicitly implied by the 2nd amendment as a responsibility.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The only question involved here, is, are there any members of the GOP Aristocracy willing to side with the people of the United States against the United States Federal Government. In light of the recent and growing coverage of the Obama Administrations “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal, under which the Obama Justice Department intentionally provided firearms to Mexican Narcotics Cartel members for the specific purpose of being used in violent acts so that they could gin up statistics and provide a justification for stricter firearms regulations.
Just such legislation requiring a penalty tax be imposed upon every citizen over the age of 18 who fails to purchase or prove ownership of a firearm would provide a unique juxtaposition of moral and ethical values between the American people and the Obama administration. Since the SCOTUS ruling on ACA states that the Commerce Clause cannot be employed to coerce individuals to engage in financial transaction as dictated by Congress, but that punitory taxation can be employed the Democrat Administration of Barack Obama would be placed in a odious position of defending why the Affordable Care Act is good and acceptable legislation while a nearly identically worded Affordable Firearms Act legislation would not be.
Let us then in that case see how the ruling on the Affordable Care Act stands up when worded thusly.
See §5000A(b). That, according to the Government, means the mandate can be regarded as establishing a condition—not owning
health insurance A Firearm—that triggers a tax—the required payment to the IRS. Under that theory, the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance a Firearm. Rather, it makes going without insurance a Firearm just another thing the Government taxes, like buying gasoline or earn-ing income.
