Everyone says we need to do something about pollution and gun control, but they skirt around the answers. I have an answer for both, if we can find a courageous legislature.
Gun control: Everything that has been proposed doesn't address the real issue. I say tax all gun sales and ammo sales by 2 percent, and use the money for mental health. If I can afford a gun for $1,000, then the same gun costing $1,020 won't make any difference.
Pollution: Put a 10 cents per gallon tax on gasoline, and reduce the cost of UTA to zero. If we're going to pollute, we have to pay.
Will there be people who complain about these costs? Sure, everyone wants a free ride, but if they're going to play, they have to pay.
These are simple solutions to complex problems.
Don't forget, we are often the dirtiest city in America.
