Because liquor and cigs don't have a specific amendment to the constitution protecting their rights.

No taxation without representation - if you don't like the tax then vote in some new representatives.

No one is restricting guns or alcohol.

Because the 2nd amendment doesn't protect our right to get a free firearm, it protects our right to own one.

I tell you it's really pissing me off the way these liberals are behaving. I'm glad I don't live in a liberal "utopia" at least.

I don't know where you live but everyone is trying to restrict/confiscate/ban firearms and firearms accesories where I am.

This type of legislation severely disenfranchises the average gun purchaser and unfairly targets poor people who already can't afford to buy ammo for their firearms.

Great. Then when we add a poll tax you won't have a problem...

I'm sick of poor people voting.

So guns should be free cause it is a privilege? Actually your right to own a gun is a privilege, the actual gun is not a privilege, it is a piece of merchandise.
