If that pesky Second Amendment and the Heller ruling affirm that you can’t keep American citizens from carrying firearms, the least you to do to promote gun control is to charge confiscatory fees for exercising that right.

The New York Times reports that New Jersey Gov. Philip Murphy has proposed raising the state fee for owning and carrying a gun from $27 to $550.

Remember that awesome ratio when “Kimberly” argued, “People from low-income areas are usually not educated enough to find jobs/make a living and shouldn’t have guns,” adding, “Why should they have to protect their families if they don’t possess things that people might want to steal?”

So sure, let’s price gun ownership right out of the hands of a lot of people. Poor people don’t have anything anyone would want to steal anyway.
