( 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.





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.
