'Bullet Tax' Proposed By Mayoral Candidate
BALTIMORE -- A mayoral candidate's plan to reduce violence in Baltimore includes a "bullet tax" that he said will increase the cost of committing a crime.Otis Rolley said he would, if elected, propose a $1 per bullet tax on all bullet purchases in the city. The idea was part of an overall crime plan he unveiled Tuesday.I'm guessing that the rest of his anti-crime initiatives were just as grounded in reality. You know, like stopping drive-by shootings by banning scooters... Now, Rolley is only a candidate, and as such hasn't garnered the approval of a majority of Baltimore residents (yet), so he's not on a par with Mumbles - yet - though with stupid ideas like this it's not for lack of trying.
He then goes on to say that banning guns won't work because criminals steal guns - which completely ignores the fact that they'll steal the bullets too. This yutz is in danger of collapsing in a black hole of stupid, which means he'd fit in perfectly with Mumbles and Bloomin'idiotberg. Here's the best part:
Rolley, a Democrat, served as the city's planning director from 2003 to 2007.So, this nutball has held an active role in Baltimore's inner workings, and this is what he comes up with. No wonder Baltimore is in such rough shape.
I shudder to think of what idiocy Mumbles will come up with to top this...
That is all.
