All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

Gun Control's Senator Patty Murray

When Senator Patty Murray was elected in 1992, the very first thing she did upon being sworn in was to propose a 10,000% ad valorem excise tax on ammunition. That bill died, since it would dramatically increase the cost to local government of outfitting police forces (Apparently Murray wouldn't mind this).

Then Patty Murray voted for the Brady Law, which gave us national waiting periods and the “Instant” Check. Senator Patty Murray also voted for the “Violent Crime Control And Law Enforcement Act Of 1994,” which gave us magazine bans and the so-called "Assault Weapons Ban."

Her contempt of self-defense goes even farther. That same year, Senator Patty Murray introduced legislation that would raise the handgun tax to 25 percent and extend the tax to all intermediate transactions — from manufacturer to distributor through retailer to consumer. The total tax would be a 95% added to the cost of a firearm.
