How is taxing a person $200.00 for the RIGHT to own a machine gun Constitutional? I don't see anywhere in the Second Amendment that it specifies any guns,or any kind of guns are or aren't allowed. If it was to place limits of any kind,would it not have included something like,"the right to keep and bear arms of a size suitable for defense" or "arms of a grade less than that of the army",or something like that? Taxing any part of a Constitutional Amendment is still a restriction,an infringement,and is Unconstitutional. I agree that the way the Second Amendment is written is generally understood to be that everyone should be able to own and carry armament EQUAL to whatever the Military would carry.
