Tax weapons for NRA plan

Regarding the April 7 letter to the editor, “Armed guards everywhere”: I say we get behind Wayne LaPierre and Asa Hutchinson’s proposals to put security guards in schools and train teachers to pack and use weapons, with one condition: that the program be financed entirely by a tax on assault weapon and high-capacity ammunition clip sales.

I don’t want to pay one dime for LaPierre’s untested ideas. Let his constituents pay to prove the wisdom of this partisan concoction. And every time there’s a school massacre, let’s double that tax.
