If it was illegal somewhere, I'm sure some enterprising plaintiff's attorney would figure out a way to file an ADA claim. the article mentions it, but I'm not surprised at all. so many silly CYA rules and procedures because of creative ADA lawsuits.

maybe if you were required to own one you'd be entitled to a free one, i dunna know. can i get reimbursed for the cost of gas and wear 'n' tear on my vehicle when i drive to my voting station?

an egregiously high tax on ammo, something that is clearly intended to stifle use, would be somewhat akin to saying, "sure, boy, you've got the right to vote, but yer gonna' have to pay this here tax first. oh, and here's a test you'll have to take and pass too. good luck, boy.
har! har! har!"

In that case it wasn't really a "tax", more so a means of blocking all blacks from voting. Expensive ammo would be a tax from one view but it could also be viewed as having more second amendment rights akin to how having more money gives you more ability to exercise your 1a right.

poll tax and literacy tests applied to everyone. were poll taxes and literacy tests used to target specific classes/groups? certainly. so you had the right, you just faced targeted burdens if you wanted to use that right

Literacy tests generally had "grandfather clauses" so that white people didn't have to take them. this one, at least theoretically, only requires a 5th grade education to be avoided.
