Why Having a Gun in New Jersey Could Soon Cost 20 Times as Much
Gov. Philip D. Murphy of New Jersey wants to put the state at the forefront of a movement to raise fees on gun permits in order to expand efforts to tackle gun violence and reduce the flow of illegal firearms.
Mr. Murphy, a Democrat, has proposed fees that would be among the highest in the country. An identification card would cost $100, an owner’s permit would be $50 and a carry permit $400.
Besides raising fees on gun ownership, Mr. Murphy is also seeking an ammunition excise tax of 10 percent and a firearms excise tax of 2.5 percent. His proposals are part of the state budget, which the Legislature must pass by June 30.

I don’t understand the ruckus here.

If they can charge a fee, it’s all quibbling about how much.

The fact that they can charge is the problem. It’s interesting that the left is ok with charging to exercise a right... because they sure object to it for other rights.

The Left believes rights they like should free like tuition or health care and rights they hate like free speech and guns are violent and racist...

Note: Not saying I think health care or college tuition is a right.
