If Twitter does melt down and break because a ratio got out of control, blame it on David Hogg for suggesting a federal sales tax on guns to pay for gun violence research.
Congress ought to create a federal tax on gun sales to fund gun violence research.
— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) November 28, 2018
Gun violence research sounds like a worthy cause (not really) — but never forget that this is the same kid who said that NRA members are “pathetic f**kers that want to keep killing our children,” so we’ll take a hard pass on any idea he wants to float, forever.
As usual, Kyle Kashuv was there to provide some common sense.
David, please realize that this penalizes people from low income areas that are just trying to protect their families and will now be unable to because of this unnecessary tax.
— Kyle Kashuv (@KyleKashuv) November 29, 2018
Who wants to give Hogg some backup? Anyone? How about you?
Editor’s note: Looks like Kimberly finally took her post down; here’s a screenshot:
Lets be clear. People from low income areas are usually not educated enough to find jobs/make a living and shouldn't have guns. Why should they have to protect their families if they don't possess things that people might want to steal? Or are they in a war zone and need guns?

How about their lives, are they not worth protecting? That's why I own guns, to protect myself and my family. Owning a gun has noting to do with possessions or education.
Looks like you're getting ratiod. You earned it with that stupid comment.
— Joe (@JoeC1776) November 29, 2018
Are you truly ignorant enough to claim that the only crime a person may need to protect their families from is theft? Or that a person’s financial status should determine whether or not they should be allowed their constitutional rights? Hmmm.

Arrogant, condescending, elitist, self righteous, bigoted, and disgusting.

Oh you poor dear. Quick, for 10 points … who is the most likely to be a crime victim, a rich person or a poor person? https://t.co/3UIVxbdpyG

Let's be clear. No matter the income, people want to protect their families. What people attempt to steal is relative.

She is either in favor of only the "rich" having guns or only the government having them. Either way, weak take.

Clarity is something you are lacking. And, how absolutely disgusting to say that because one is poor they lack the intelligence Or education to find work. Their families are important enough to protect.
— Jlisa (@Jlisa42067) November 29, 2018
Are you serious with this? Do you not think that their LIVES and the lives of their family are worth saving? Because they are poor…screw them? I'm rarely stunned speechless but wow. This is the most bigoted, elitist piece of shit I've ever read.

Clearly you have no understanding regarding owning a firearm. What about protecting their family? It is pretty shallow of you to think that just because someone is "poor" that they shouldn't have the right to protect their property and family.

The fact that someone isn't wealthy, and didn't receive an ivy league education, doesn't make their life less valuable. Someone's socio-economic status is totally irrelevant to their right to defend themselves. To think otherwise is, at best, arrogant.

A lot of those people from "low income areas" use guns to hunt to put food on the table.
So you would advocate keeping them hungry too?

In your world exactly how wealthy does a person have to be for their life to matter enough to be worth protecting?
What is the cutoff point where they are too poor to matter?
