( a package of   measures to   curb   and eradicate the   fire- arms - related  violent crime in the US)

The   following   package of    legislative measures and   other initiatives   is   specifically tuned for the country like US where financial incentives   are   to be ( at least in theory) the   driving   force for   the success of any   endeavor.

Taxes:

1. Develop and approve the Index Of Local Violence Level parameter measured by the annual loss of life and property damage. Approve the index in Congress and   publish   this index   openly for public   annually per   voting districts. Develop a   statistical methodology to come up with the National Index for USA on the basis of the local indices.   Develop and introduce a "National Index System for Violence in the   Entertainment' for movies, video-games,   TV-series, all visual   entertainment,

2. Introduce a special Violence Tax division in the   Federal IRS with sole goal to collect and   distribute the   new set of taxes   associated with violence.   The   funding for the division   is to come   from the    Defense   budget.

3. Introduce a    special   " Local Violence Vanishing Tax' on   all   registered religious   institutions   per      voting districts. The tax should be universal and non- discriminatory.   The higher is   the   index of local violence - the higher is the tax on the   donated   and/or other    assets/proceedings   of those institutions (e.g. -- Bar- Mitzvah charges   for the Jewish    institution) ; the lower the index- the   lower the tax.   Tax is to be collected by the    Federal IRS       Violence tax division. The amount of the   tax   is to be   defined    per the assets targeted and   published in the form of tables.

4. Introduce a "Vanishing Violence   Tax' on all private educational institutions   per voting districts under the same   conditions as #3.

5. Introduce a " progressive salary change' on all the upper --level   federal, state   and local    govt. officials   and /or supervisory personnel   associated with the voting districts-   from public school principals to   senators and   congressmen; The higher the index- the lower the salary and vice-verse.  Non- supervisory personnel is   not   to be    a part of this measure.

Introduce a special   "Protection Tax' levied on   the following:   all   big business ( profit   more than $10mln per year gross) ; every   short -- term   stock- exchange transaction ( both on buyer and seller); every off- shore account; every   outsourcing activity; every   govt/state   contractual bid. The   tax is to be universal and   constant per the category   of the asset taxed ( like one   level of % for profits and another one -- for transactions, etc).

7. Introduce and exercise a special " Presidential Tax' on all Presidents of the USA, tied to the   National Index. Publish that tax   value every year of the Presidency and impose the final value (year 4) on the   outgoing President   and on the President- Elect.

8. Introduce and exercise   a " Violence Tax' on all types   of visual entertainment ( per profits) according to the "National Index System for Violence in the   Entertainment' above,
