I oppose this bill because I disagree SOME semi-automatic rifles and pistols are assault weapons. I disagree that gun manufacturers should be sued. I propose this amendment.

Insane Tax removal Amendment

SECTION V: GUN TAX

1. There shall be a 15% additional tax imposed on all shotguns

2. There shall be a 30% additional tax imposed on all handguns and pistols

3. There shall be a 50% additional tax imposed on all other firearms, that are legal to purchase, under this bill


This amendment is friendly by me. However, I have been thinking that I should probably table this bill given that Lincoln already has, what I think, are effective enough laws regarding guns as said by a few already.

Thinking this bill over, I've decided that there's no need for it and that I might as well motion to table it.

Councilors have 24 hours to object.

P.S. I apologize to all for my inactivity as of late. I'll do my best to try to speed things along from now on.

The vote to table has now ended and the majority of the Council has voted in favor to do so.
