Pricing folks out

$250 for a Chicago handgun license? Cheaper than New York.

    Cheaper than the average CCW permit in TX or TN.

    How is this different from a poll tax?

    @Diogenes:
    A poll tax is on voting, which is much more protected than RTKBA.

    I dunno about that, Tam. I’d say ours is closer to $200 if you rent a .22 to qualify with.

    About on Par with a Massachusetts Permit-to-own.

    @bob dole:
    I’m guessing that was tongue-in-cheek. You may be aware that there was no individual right to vote in the original Consitution or Bill of Rights. It’s a antebellum construct that appears fully formed in the 14th and 15th amendments. I chuckle to imagine U.S. Supreme Court justices discussing “reasonable” poll taxes in this century. Yet “reasonable” restrictions on gun ownership is apparently a different matter entirely. 2008 may be instructive that votes are more dangerous than guns.

    I fear that we’re quickly closing in on the “democracy” that the founding fathers feared…

    I think they don’t have a poll tax because they know you can’t change very much with a single vote. It’s not like they can’t stuff the ballot box with all of your dead relatives anyways. That’s the Chicago way!
