mountainpass 2 years, 4 months ago on Gun permit costs rise

I'm a license holder and I agree with Mrs. Stephenson. Why continue with the permit system? Let's face it the economy is bad. So why didn't the Legislature just do away with these unlawful permits. It would help my county's bottom line as well as mine. The permit costs $90 in my county now. The 2nd Amendment doesn't mention I need permission from the government that I in turn must purchase from it. If you really think about it, in a common sense sort of way it makes sense as to why permits aren't necessary. A criminal doesn't follow laws, so they aren't going to buy a permit. So why make a law-abiding person spend $90, not counting what they pay in taxes to make that permit available. It's silly.

A criminal, by definition, is going to break a law, probably several, so the charge of possession of a gun without a license is not going to change that.

If you think about it a law-abiding person is not going to break a law......
