Pathetic. Disturbing. Unreal. Its already totally unacceptable the state of New Jersey severely restricts residents concerning their 2nd Amendment rights, but now a New Jersey state legislator suggests for $500 per year the state would reconsider their opinion. They think they can generate tax revenue through the scheme.

Thanks for posting, reporting. The machinations of totalitarians.
Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-Cape May)
Why don’t we propose a $500/yr fee if you register as a Democrat.
They place such a burden on society, it’s only ‘fair.’
Oh, and let’s place a $500 fee on other rights, like voting. Oh, wait ...
“...........would be more open to accepting gun-toting citizens if they knew they paid $500 for the privilege.”
Key word here is privilege. Like many of the liberal asses they don’t understand the RIGHTS we already have.
Damn, by the headline I thought the article was saying they’d give me $500 a year to help me exercise my 2nd Amendment rights.
I think $500/year is about right, for the privilege of not owning a gun.
$500 tax for every church, printing press, microphone or television camera.
$50 tax per bilbe (Korans are free)
$25 for every time you ask to see a search warrant.
$10,000 jury fee.
$1000 non-testifying fine. You still don't have to incriminate yourself, but now you just have to pay.
In order to belong to any left leaning organization, liberal-socialist, communist etc. you have to be at least half brain dead to begin with, so what else would you expect?
Things like this are just tools to keep the poor (and often that really means Blacks) in a subservient position. Democrats love this stuff.
Will girls seeking abortions also have to pay $500 per year to exercise their rights?
didn’t think so.
How about we barter...so many bullets per 2A rights.
All reporters must pay a $500.00 fee to write.
How about a tax on Democrats, since they’re the people who always demand more federal spending?
I always thought "EXTORTION" was illegal. Guess not when the Gubbermint is doing it.
Many of the these people are the same liberals who are opposed to law-abiding citizens owning guns.
How much do they pay to exercise their right?
nah, a flat rate like that would be abused by 'big media'...
needs to be a per word rate...
Numerous God-given rights are listed in the Bill of Rights. If NJ charged $500 per person for exercising those rights each year, they could bring in thousands of dollars per person. I’m sure that Dems see nothing wrong with this dramatic expansion of the old poll tax idea.
How about $500 every time a politician talks. The state would have a surplus in about a week.

$500 per year for the right of Self-defense?
How about $500 per year to exercise 1st Amendment rights?
