OK ironic that those items were banned, mostly in response to a problem the government itself created (prohibition)

Hey, where was it that Chris Kyle and his friend were killed this week? A gun range, you say? Must have been a gun-free gun range.

That's the standard sort of double-standard I've come to expect here.

However, you seem to forget something. Those that want to go on shooting rampages never seem to go where other people have guns.

In addition to the $200 tax, photographing and fingerprinting would be required. For a working class individual, this equates to taking at least 1/2 a day off of work, or an additional $100 + travel costs tax.
A working class person could own (10) 22lr guns with a sum total invested of $2,200 MSRP (likely half of that if purchased 5 years ago, on sale, or used). He/She would be responsible for $300 x 10 class 3 weapons = $3,000 in taxes on $2,200 worth of pellet guns.
Anybody who does not see the "social architecture" there is likely anti-gun and imposing their own unconstitutional views upon the rest of society.

Whereas a tax on a non-fundamental right would only have to survive the lower standards of either intermediate scrutiny or the rational basis test.

To make it more illustrative, let's say that en lieu of a weapons ban, taxes were placed on all ammunition (or components to manufacture, for sake of argument) at $100/ea (e.g. a 4 cent 22LR round would now cost $100.04). e.g., prohibitively expensive and with the sole purpose of inhibiting the purpose of owning a gun (a protected 2A right). One could still own a gun, but without ammunition, you'd be better off beating down a perp with it.
Does social engineering have a limit?

It would seem the ACLU has pursued several excessive fee cases in the name of the first amendment but they don't seem to mention the 8th.
