Here's an interesting admission

Anyone who's read Unintended Consequences has known this for forever (John Ross knew his history quite well). The tax stamp you pay for NFA items was intended to keep people from obtaining them, but of course the effect was that only the rich would be able to afford them. Ross, in his book, notes this act illegally created a tiered system of ownership.



Some will die in hot pursuit
And fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain
