The Biden plan as I heard it, was a $200 tax like a NFA weapon on any semi-auto weapon AND any mag that holds more than 10 rounds.

The problem with any tax on firearms is that they will be challenged in court for discriminating against lower income tiers that would not be able to pay a tax (on a right).

That was the purpose of the NFA in 1934 in the first place. Those were the days of Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde. Anyone could buy a machine gun over the counter if you could afford it. The tax was set at $200.00 per gun to keep them out of the hands of the general public. People were digging ditches for $1.00 a day trying to feed their families. Only the rich could afford the tax AND the gun.

Since the machine gun ban of 1986 the prices have skyrocketed. An M-16 that could be bought or built on a Form-1 was about $400.00 plus the tax. Now they’re around $25-30k. Where are the lawsuits when that happened?

I'm saying it would be easily demonstrable that this is a punitive tax with the express purpose of restricting the exercise of a guaranteed right.

And who’s going to stop “them”? The US Supreme Court? Is that the one that just let us down a couple of days ago by not granting a hearing on a clearly unconstitutional violation of voting laws in PA and other states for the 2020 election? Or is the one that ruled obammycare a tax, when it was not passed as a tax?

Because I’m thinking if you’re counting on them to help with ANYTHING then don’t be surprised when they don’t.
