NEW YORK - (AP) -- A federal appeals court gave the green light Tuesday to a law permitting New York City to charge hundreds of dollars for a gun licensing fee that costs $3 to $10 elsewhere in the state,

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said the $340 handgun fee for a three-year license was legal for the same reasons that fees imposed on those seeking to stage a rally or a parade are constitutional.

"Imposing fees on the exercise of constitutional rights is permissible when the fees are designed to defray (and do not exceed) the administrative costs of regulating the protected activity," the appeals court said...

FR is funded solely by the freedom loving folks who love and use it.


Liberals claim minorities cannot easily obtain photo IDs,
therefore it is discrimination to demand a photo ID for
voting
owning a fire arm.

OK, enact a voter license fee and use this judgement as precedent. Bet the judge that OK’d a gun license fee would blow a major artery.

Given the logic in this ruling, a poll tax should be A-OK.

"...the administrative costs of regulating the protected activity,"

There needn't be any administrative costs to regulate a protected activity...that's what "protective activity" (constitutional right) means you dolts. Sadly, our Constitution has long ago been rendered meaningless.

How is a charge wildly above the actual service cost different in concept from a poll tax? Both exist to restrict access through unaffordability.

As usual, Dem laws and policies hurt the poor the most. The more the Dem’s crap on the poor the stronger their alleigence to the Dem’s. go figure....

In the NYC metro area most people are just fleeing instead. NY and NJ are scrambling to look for revenue sources, and will never stop; they are in a death spiral and they know it.

And to think in 1838 Frederick Douglass escaped slavery by heading to New York. The entire urban approach to gun control would make the Ku Klux Klan proud.

The Party of Slavery continues its misrule and blacks are the victims. High priced, difficult to get and politically manipulated gun permits. The KKK loved them and implemented them via Jim Crow Justice.

Concealed carry not allowed on public transportaion keeps the poor disarmed and vulnerable. Net, net, net nobody gets off the plantation unless we say so, got it slave?

The entire cuntry is slowly but inexorably being pulled in two - on the one hand, all those who buy into the whole Liberal line, while, on the other, are all the normal and rational people.

If this keeps up, the United States will become two separate nations, as separated by ideology as Iowa is from China.

If that was a notion, I second it.

While the ass clowns celebrate diversity (instead of unity), this was a planned result. There are think tanks devising the social and ideological separation lines that we see by drawn by government actions. These lines will become more apparent and more polar as time goes on. After enough time passes, the media will no longer mask the “Us and them” distinction. That will be the signal the revolution is about to begin.
