New Jersey Governor Phillip Murphy wants to pass more laws criminals will ignore

Is he just this stupid? Is he just playing politics? Maybe he just loathes the right to self-defense. More at Bearing Arms

Now, though, they’re taking things to a whole new level. They want to make it even more difficult to purchase a firearm legally.

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.

Though New Jersey has strict gun control laws, its firearms fees have not changed since the mid-1960s, making it a bargain for gun owners. A firearm identification card costs $5, while a permit to own a firearm is $2. A permit to carry a gun costs $20.

New York City, which also has stringent gun laws, charges $340 to apply for a permit to own and carry a gun.

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.

The hardest hit here will be the low income residents. Such people are often living in higher crime areas, so, really, Murphy is attacking the most vulnerable New Jersey residents. And the least hardest hit will be criminals
