Big surprise, I'm anti most gun ownership claims. I suppose I might consider getting a shotgun if I lived in the woods, but I digress. The issue for me is the attempt to ensure deadliness to the attacker, anyone considered "offensive" or any innocent that happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The real goal here should be to find some technology that is convenient to carry, keeps the bearer safe in most of the same circumstances as a gun might, and leaves everyone alive and with no permanent injuries afterwards.
I think if such a thing were available more people would carry them and more lives would be protected, It might even reach the levels of "herd immunity" that are just out of reach for firearms carry no matter what BS the lobby promotes
Of course such a thing would never be approved even if it were invented
But the guns have to become less prevalent, especially in cities, they just cause more problems than they solve, way beyond what is commonly discussed
The US already accepts different tax brackets, this is just another tax bracket at the low end, one where you get negative tax rather than zero tax as the lowest rate. The only other difference is that the IRS sends the "refund" check in 12 installments rather than one.
Only the poor or the mega rich would fall entirely into that bracket
For large values of one, one equals two, for small values of two.
