Gun-fee idea misfires II

So Jim Byrnes, writer of the letter “Assess fee to own guns,” wants to impose a $1,000 annual fee for the exercise of Second Amendment rights? This reminds me of poll taxes Southern Democrats imposed to deter blacks from exercising their constitutional right to vote.
But if Mr. Byrnes thinks this approach is sound, I have an idea that would save far more lives: Impose a $1,000 fee for voting Democrat. Given that murder and abortion rates are much higher in cities and states governed by Democrats, my suggestion would save thousands of innocent lives every year.
