A Note to AGS Visitors

Close

Americans for Gun Safety (AGS) and the AGS Foundation (AGSF) have been folded into Third Way, an organization founded and operated by the former AGS and AGSF management team.

For Third Way’s latest gun safety policy and message guidance, please visit our gun issues page. There you can also find reports produced by AGS in a special sub-category.

For current gun safety data and other information, we recommend the American Hunters and Shooters Association, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Legislation

Internet Safety and Child Protection Act of 2005

Abstract

Legislation designed to protect children from Internet pornography by imposing strict age-verification requirements, funded by a “smut tax” requiring purveyors of online porn to pay the costs.

Description

Legislation inspired by the Third Way report The Porn Standard: Children and Pornography on the Internet, and introduced by Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and several others. It would impose strict age-verification requirements for Internet porn and a “smut tax” – a federal excise tax of 25 percent – that would require purveyors of online porn to pay the costs of protecting children online.
