Disarming poor people is OK!

So rules a federal judge in NY who thinks that the $340 doesn’t deter people from getting a gun. I think NY should start charging that fee to vote.

    He said courts have approved significantly higher fees, citing a ruling that permitted a $3,000 adult business license fee.

    What a twit. Last time I checked, there wasn’t an explicit right to operate an adult business in the constitution.

    What’s the Pay Scale for a Federal Judge? Perhaps he needs to Work behind the Counter at a NYC Starbucks and realize that Money doesn’t grow on Trees, in spite of what Obama thinks.

  3. HL Says:

    $340 to excercise a right is not an unreasonable barrier, but requiring an ID to vote is.

    I am not sure why we are shocked. The decision as to whether the government has the authority to force a citizen to buy a product against their will is about to come down to one American’s vote tomorrow.

    Les, I am sure it is heft in NYC. A public school teacher there makes $100k a year.

    Time for some Munro Williams.

    Their hand is showing more and more. When they get a chance to rule, they intend to rule fully.

    Les,

    Money does grow on trees for Obama. The trees look like productive people and they smell like work.

    Better yet, charge $340 for a permit to get an abortion.

    According to No Lawyers, only Guns and Money, Nassau County on Long Island is the ONLY NY county allowed to charge more than $10 for the permit.

    Note that Nassau County also has a DA that forbids anyone in the DA’s office from possessing a handgun, and in fact asks on the application for employment if the applicant has ever owned a handgun or had a license to carry.

    What a hell hole.

    I live in NY state, next county west of me the fee (not counting the required safety course) is $300 ($50 just to pick up the paperwork).

    As I understand it, that’s also the fee to *re-register* guns that are already on the books.
