NJ 'Gun Control' By Cost Hikes

By Tom Knighton. June 26th, 2018

We already knew that Governor Phil Murphy hated guns. His signing of a slew of recent gun control bills made that obvious in case anyone didn't know. Of course, those laws didn't stop a recent shooting in Trenton, NJ, but whatever, right?

What we didn't necessarily know was just how much he hated poor people.

I mean, he may pretend he's a champion of the little guy, but if that's the case, why does he want so badly to make it too expensive for poor people to be armed in his state?

Gov. Phil Murphy is proposing to significantly hike fees for buying and selling firearms in New Jersey, a move that would raise the cost of gun permits and licenses for the first time in half a century and likely trigger a legal challenge from Second Amendment advocates.

Murphy, a Democrat who has already signed half a dozen gun control bills in his first few months in office, has publicly called for raising such fees. .......

A despicable example of another control scheme, which would effectively penalize gun owners, and particularly potential gun owners. The imposition of increased and draconian costs for a whole range of firearm oriented "privilages" is likely to hit very hard for low income people, whose Second Amendment rights are the same as everyone elses. It is little more than 'gun control' by another means - ergo, infringement.
