Gas taxes should be SOLELY applied to those transportation systems that are used by GAS-USING VEHICLES, PERIOD.

That's WHY there is a "GAS-TAX" to BEGIN WITH. Those taxes should NEVER be used for any other PORK PROJECTS. Any legislator who thinks otherwise should be THROWN OUT OF OFFICE, for GOOD.

The GAS TAX is DIFFERENT from the SALES TAX. GET IT?? The GAS TAX should be solely dedicated to ROADS AND BRIDGES INFRASTRUCTURE, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE.

NOW, some STUPID "task force" thinks that we should raise gas taxes in this state by 40 cents a GALLON, to fix our roads.

NONSENSE!!!! They have ABUSED, MISAPPROPRIATED, DIVERTED, and RIPPED OFF our GAS TAXES for DECADES, and NOW, they want MORE TAXES to ABUSE??

NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR BIKE PATHS. NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR LIGHT RAIL. NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR MASS TRANSIT, those who use mass transit should be able and WILLING to at least pay enough for the system to BREAK EVEN.

EVERYTHING!! What's wrong with you??

GAS TAXES should go to ROADS AND BRIDGES, NOT stupid BIKE TRAILS or LITE RAIL.

If you want paved bike trails and lite rail, then you should impose a NEW TAX to PAY FOR IT, or at least RAISE FARES, so those systems can at least BREAK EVEN. Require bike license plates to ride on paved bike trails. Raise lite rail fares to PAY FOR the services that they expect.

If guns are designed only to kill with 300,000,000+ guns in the USA that would mean everyone in the USA would be shot dead.

If they were all used at once and at separate human targets, but your logic is obviously weak, huh ???

Guns are defensive and preventative weapons more than they are offensive weapons.

And before all the anti-gun zealots get their panties in a bunch, that does not mean that guns are not used by criminals in an offensive manner. The fact that criminals do use them offensively is all the more reason I should have one as a defensive weapon.

Everyone knows drunk drivers just buy a car and keep driving. How many repeat drunk drivers go on to kill?
While if you kill with a gun you will end up incarcerated.
Except that cars are designed to drive, while guns are designed to hurt and kill.

You are the one who said guns are designed only to KILL humans. Virtually every gun in the USA is fired at least once per year, OK.

That being the case then IF they are only designed to kill people that would mean there would be 300,000,000 human deaths every year. The USA would be devoid of people in one year.

We are taking about gun killings of innocent humans only. Gun control has never been about killing of non-humans or criminals in justified homocide cases.

Cars are designed to kill as much as guns.

You really need to go back to school and study physics.

You see there are far more people killed by cars, truck, trains, buses etc than will ever be killed by guns.

Your Quote: "guns are designed to hurt and kill". No guns are a tool much like any other tool. A gun can be used to hunt, target shoot, plink, defend yourself and others, compete in the Olympics, be used by military to defend out country, reduce the number of varmits (wolves, prarie dogs, gophers, coyotes, unwanted birds etc).

You can say any object is not designed to kill even thou it's misuse can cause death and injury when used by a person intent on killing or hurting others, like a car.

OR you can think logically and realize there are an infinite number of weapons that can be used to hurt and kill humans.

However, NONE of those weapons would kill a human unless a human used it in such a way that ends up in the death of another person.

I realize the above comments might be difficult to understand but give it a chance and read it a couple of times. It MIGHT sink in.

Thanks a bunch Buddy.

Guess, you REALLY shouldn't have guns... being stupid and ALL.
