That's exactly what they want. Another 48 Mil with their hands out to further justify spending. With Americans making their own money they can't fully justify the existance of the others who don't. It's socialism at its finest. Everybody can sit around and enjoy the same amount of misery.
This is a buy back program no doubt about it. I can't believe they actually want to dangle a tax credit over our heads. "If you work hard and make a good amount of money, PAY UP!!! If you work and make a good amount of money and own scary guns then here is an option to get some of your money back." They are actually holding our Taxpayer bucks hostage for ransom. "Give us what we want and we will give you back what you want."
I have an idea though. This is just a thought, but Stop spending our money on stupid shit and nobody would need tax credits... I know that's an extremist ideology.
I bet they have their collection centers in federal buildings so they can detain you when you walk in the door for bringing a gun onto federal property.
