This policy will likely have a measurable impact on demand for lower priced firearms and I suspect will price some of the lower income people out of buying firearms. This isn't rocket science basic economics shows this.

So ask yourself what the actual intent of this bill is, to raise hurdles on criminals getting access to guns where history has shown they will get around them fairly easily. Or is the intent to raise the price of 20-40% of firearms transactions that are private party where economics shows if you raise the pricing you lower demand and reduce the number of people buying guns?

You can decide which one is the more likely intent.
The inverse of this is: does the opposition really care about keeping people safe, or do they just want guns to be cheaper so they can sell to more inner city gangs who can shoot each other?
