Gun-fee idea misfires III

For the benefit of Jim Byrnes, writer of the letter “Assess fee to own guns,” and others of like mind, the fee he suggests would run counter to long-standing U.S. Supreme Court rulings that state the exercise of a constitutional right shall not be taxed. The fee he recommends is obviously a tax on the exercise of a constitutional right.
As to his suggestion to “register all automatic rifles”: “Think twice, post once” comes to mind. For pity's sake, look at a long-existing federal law, the National Firearms Act of 1934. It is rather interesting, as he might find.
