Why stop there? That should extend to any firearm which includes an internal lock!

I'm a libertarian. I'm not about using the government to steal my neighbors
money for me, for anything.

While I completely agree the money comes from me (and you and everyone else who pays taxes) it just leads to some of the big problems I have in general with our tax code. It creates complexity by creating yet another special interest group. Also as D White pointed out you are taking someone elses money to pay for something you want that they might not. Lets say you buy a $1,500 safe. The .gov is not going to just sit back and not purchase something else (or pay someone etc) they will just reshuffle money possibly taking funds from another to fill that gap and in doing so take those funds from something that tax payer supported to in essence make up for the loss you caused when you spent $1,500 on something you wanted.

Once they steal (and it is robbery in my opinion) your money it becomes part of the greater pot and is indistinguishable from the rest.

The only gun control legislation I will ever support is legislation repealing gun control legislation already on the books and not replacing it with anything.

Someone could work it this way to get bipartisan support:

People said "We have to do something to protect the children". We heard it and here's a solution. 100% tax credit for purchasing a safe on tax free back to school weekend. Also, any firearm training is tax deductible. That way, our parents are educated about firearm use and our children are safer as firearms are locked up at home. Also, we'll develop a youth educational program. Since it's an american issue, we could give it an eagle as the symbol. Maybe we could call him Eddie?

Do you think they'll go for it? ;):D

Sure, after I just bought my third safe. It does however sound like a good idea.

OK, so I agree deductions like this would be nice. However, I agree with dwhite and TA that the tax code is crazy enough already, and we need a flat tax.Another however, I believe home mortgage interest should still be deductible which TA disagrees with (from past conversations I think.) Mortgage interest is something that's good for all taxpayers, as it encourages home ownership, which protects property values and the safety of locations in most cases. When we own a home we take care of it better than renters, and if we work hard enough to save up and get a home in a nice, safe area, we should be assured (to some extent) that it will stay that way.
Maybe with a flat tax all this low-income housing will no longer be placed in the nice neighborhoods, well, yall know what I mean. I will ramble no more.
Oh, but I also think medical insurance premiums should be deductible. I realize making these two items deductible will open the door to the slippery slope, but- we probably will never get a flat tax anyway.

You are right I do disagree with the mortgage deduction as well as a medical one.

I am ok with a flat tax, but in my opinion, while worlds better than what we have today, it will still be plagued by one of the most insidious issues with the current system unless you also do away with all federal withholding. Even if we did that, I still dont think incomes should be taxed. Tax consumption.

Well I really would have no problem with a national sales tax, either, as opposed to income taxes.

I hate internal locks !!!!!!!!
How much do you estimate that you'd hate them in the event in which such a tax break were to be implemented?

People are under the mistaken belief that the government has money.

All the money they have has been appropriated from someone. That's it.

Politicians like to beat on "greedy corporations" but, government produces
NOTHING but laws and regulations yet they manage to take in over 3 TRILLION
dollars in revenue doing so.

I deal with a corporation by choice. The government, usually by force.

Yeah, government builds roads etc but, I rather we have a FAIR TAX which is VOLUNTARY
paying for these services rather than governmental theft.

Our federal government is over $20 trillion in the hole. People need to start thinking more
about what they don't need from government and stop thinking about what they can GET
out of government.

AS long as I can keep my Obama Phone and income allowance check return annually from the FEDS they can add a few taxes to keep that funded.
I am fine with anything else as long as MY EBT cards are still good.
OH they need to go up on Social Security deductions as well so I can get an increase in that as well.

How about some exemptions for gun owners that carry, since, you know, we help to offset security/police costs by providing protection to the public. :D
