So the proceeds of this tax will go toward fighting community gun violence???? Does she mean that more prisons will be built to house all the hood rats engaging in all of this "community gun violence." Does she mean that very long sentences will be handed down such that these criminals will be in prison so long that they'll barely be able to use a walker when they get out? No, I think she means that the tax will be used to deprive the citizens who pay the bills of their rights or even more likely just be wasted on more liberal rabbit hole programs. No matter if her plan is effective or not, the Karens will genuflect before her and cry tears of joy and vote for her in even greater numbers like Pavlov's dog responding to the bell.
