Would you pay $500 Annually for a Constitutional Right? Me neither.

"{New Jersey}State Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-Cape May) introduced a bill last week that would allow residents to carry handguns if they go through a background check, complete courses in firearms safety and the lawful use of force, pass a test and pay an annual $500 fee."

N.J. gun owners already have to pay exorbitant fees for the privilege of being fingerprinted and otherwise inconvenienced to the point where one would question whether it is even worth the effort (And don't think for a second that is not the legislatures intention).

I wonder if all the Bloods in Camden will be taking these safety and proficiency courses. Maybe then they will start shooting and actually hitting each other instead of killing little kids and old ladies.
