    Sure, he can have stricter gun control and pass down his guns, he'll just have to run background checks on his own children before he hands them down to them, after he pays a transfer fee for each gun from an FFL dealer. And that's if the guns are on a gubmint approved list that says the plastic pieces on them are "safe"

    As defined by people who have no idea what the hell an actual fencing match looked like, historically.

    You've got it right. The top 10% of earners pay 70.6% of federal income taxes. The bottom 90% of earners pay 29.4% of federal income taxes.

    You realize the top 10% wage earner only makes about 115k?.....

    Of course. It's all those with an AGI (adjusted gross income) above the top 10% threshold, which is currently in the $120K =/- range.

    "The Top 50 Percent of All Taxpayers Paid 97 Percent of All Income Taxes; the Top 5 Percent Paid 57 Percent of All Income Taxes; and the Top 1 Percent Paid 35 Percent of All Income Taxes in 2011." Tax Foundation, Dec., 2013
    ---

    "Many people think that the rich are able to weasel their way out of taxes, but they actually pay an overwhelming majority of the taxes in the United States.

    What's more, their share of the tax burden is increasing.

    The top 10 percent of taxpayers paid over 70% of the total amount collected in federal income taxes in 2010, the latest year figures are available, according to the Tax Foundation, a think tank that advocates for lower taxes. That's up from 55% in 1986.

    The remaining 90% bore just under 30% of the tax burden. And 47% of all Americans pay hardly anything at all -- a fact that got Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney into political hot water last year."
