Democrat Governor Of New Jersey Pushes $550 Fee To Own And Carry A Gun

Democrats are determined to erode gun rights in any way possible. If they can’t repeal the Second Amendment, they’ll just pile fees onto gun ownership until no one can afford it anymore.

That’s what New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is trying to do.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) is pushing $550 in fees for law-abiding citizens who want to own and carry a gun for self-defense.

The New York Times reports that Murphy’s desired increase in fees is “20 times as much” as fees are today.

Currently, “a firearm identification card costs $5, while a permit to own a firearm is $2. A permit to carry a gun costs $20.” Murphy’s proposals would raise the cost to a point where the firearm identification card would be “$100, an owner’s permit would be $50 and a carry permit $400.”

Breitbart News reported that Gov. Murphy signed a “high capacity” magazine ban that took effect in New Jersey on December 11, 2018. The ban immediately turned owners of such magazines into fourth degree felons.

You know what this does? It makes it extremely difficult for poor people to own guns.
