In 1993 Senate testimony Hillary Clinton endorsed a new national 25% retail sales tax on guns. And video footage shows her nodding fiercely as gun owners and dealers are described as “purveyors of violence”
In passionate Senate testimony on Sept. 30, 1993, Hillary Clinton endorsed a new national 25% retail sales tax on guns. Americans for Tax Reform has released footage of Clinton’s visceral facial expressions which shows her nodding fiercely as she endorses the gun tax and as gun owners and dealers are described as “purveyors of violence.”
Clinton concluded her gun tax endorsement by saying, "I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that."

This doesn't infringe on the second amendment. The other stuff might be correct (I don't know) but this has nothing to do with the second.
Sure it does.
Just like a poll tax.
Ah, right, so it's only infringement if the ease of access to guns goes over an arbitrary limit you've set in your head?
The final phrase of the Taxing and Spending Clause stipulates: but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States
Are the homeless with no access to firearms having their second amendment rights violated?
No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken.
