So the feds enacting a 11% excise tax on bibles and crucifixes wouldn't violate the first amendment?
A specific tax on them, I would say yes. General tax that gets attached to everything (aka sales tax), I don't think so. I'm not aware of any special firearms specific tax you pay on guns or ammo, just sales tax.
Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax (FAET) is a tax imposed by Chapter 32 of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. 4181) on the sale of firearms and ammunition
