New AWB - Poll Taxes?
I hear the new Feinstein AWB legislation would make folks who already own the listed firearms go through the same hoops that NFA folks have to go through to keep full autos. Esentially having to pay a tax to excercise a right.
Years ago, poititians did the same thing with voting. If you could not come up with the fee to vote, you did not vote. This was mainly installed to keep blacks and poor whites from having a vote. This was struck down because folks should not have to pay to exercise a right.
If this new AWB were passed somehow, could it not be struck down on the same grounds as a poll tax? I do not see any difference.
