GUNS: Make bullets prohibitively expensive

My NRA card-carrying husband insists there is no such thing as an “assault weapon.” If there is no agreement on the definition of high-powered weapons, why not focus on the mechanism that makes them destructive? Tax bullets like we tax cigarettes.

When cigarettes became so expensive ($15 a pack in New York), people started changing their habits. If high-powered bullet magazines were prohibitively expensive, their desirability would decrease.
Guns without bullets do not kill.
