You cannot compare this to, as one person said, buying tires, for there is no specific right guaranteed in the Constitution that grants you the right to buy tires. On the other hand, ownership of firearms is specified in the 2nd Amendment and has been upheld in the Supreme Court. I would argue that it is indeed unlawful to tax any right, for it will indeed limit the access of some people to that right. There are many examples of how government has limited us. We have the right to peaceably assemble guaranteed by the Constitution, but now you have to obtain a permit and pay a fee to exercise your right to free assembly. Is that constitutional? I would argue not, but we the people have allowed it.
