You probably saw the news coverage of this — the gun grabbers in San Jose want to make gun owners pay a gun ownership tax.
In other words, they want to tax law-abiding gun owners simply for exercising their Second Amendment rights.
This is just as unthinkable as imposing a “free speech tax” or a “church attendance tax.”
But San Jose’s city council voted UNANIMOUSLY last summer to draft an ordinance that does just that.
They initially backed off and tabled the ordinance after our legal arm – the National Foundation for Gun Rights — sent a cease-and-desist letter threatening to sue them if they passed it.
But on January 25th, 2022, the San Jose city council voted to impose the “gun ownership tax.”
Immediately after the vote, we filed a lawsuit against them to stop this unconstitutional ordinance in its tracks (click here to read it).
This isn’t just about San Jose – or even California.
There is a whole coalition of Bloomberg “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” in cities all across America just waiting to implement this blatantly unconstitutional attack on gun rights if it works in San Jose.
If gun grabbers get away with taxing the right to own a gun, every left-leaning local government across the country will quickly follow.
This will be an expensive, drawn-out legal battle.
Hiring the best lawyers to put the kibosh on this progressive anti-gun nonsense means we’ll be racking up the legal bills quickly.
But we can’t afford not to. To stop it, we have to stop it now.
