At least with Bush and all others I could say he was showing his true colors or his dark side. It's getting so I don't recognize my own country's language.

For example, I can't say Maj Hassan is a terrorist? Or replacing the "posterity" in the preamble wwith "diversity" per your prog ideology? Oh, not literally, it would require an amendment. Just in reality. Your beloved ACLU is Obama's biggest tool. Or is it the other way around?

continued: The Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” - Thomas Jefferson

“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.” –Thomas Paine

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” – Patrick Henry

Some quotes from a post in a related article in the Philly Inquirer:

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” – The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

Emelye, who do you think is responsible for these high costs which you infer does discriminate against the poor? Could it be those compassionate and progressive thinkers on the left? Does this mean the left is conducting a war on the poor? How can we reconcile this without condemning those on the left? Troubling times we are living in nowadays in more ways than a liberal/progressive could have ever imagined.

Emelye brings up an interesting and developing Constitutional matter. The Supreme Court has traditionally taken issue with having to pay discriminatory taxes and fees as a prerequisite to availing one's self of his Constitutional rights. A prime example would be the matter of collecting a poll tax or fee as a precondition to voting. The 24th Amendment banned the practice altogether. Could it likewise be argued that having to pay a tax or fee to the government in order to avail one's self of his 2nd Amendment rights might also be illegal? Maybe just maybe, the government is allowed to make people jump through hoops in order to own a gun, however should any resultant admistrative costs be borne by society as a whole, as is the case with voting, rather than just the people looking to exercise their Constitutional rights?

I suppose the fees for a pistol permit in NYC are so high in order to keep the poor people from having legal handguns. When I consider the massive income and wealth inequality that exists in NYC, I'm not surprised. Only wealthy and politically connected people in NYC get handgun permits.

well I see that the "HIDDEN FEES" are no "hidden" after all--that will thankfully close the book on this item. Now as to the topic at hand, I would state that this forum gives credence to the fact that no one's voice has been "silenced" on this gun debate-that's good, isn't it?

9:54pm--"POSSIBILITY OF FUTURE FEES"--"UNLESS" - 6"33pm-"they also---how much extra cost ------for permit holders." $3.00fee for handguns, clearly stated, not hidden , nothing about "future, unless." Need I say more? Nope.

The fact is the left so out of touch with reality Rev.Jessie Jackson is claiming in Washington "the semiautomatic rifles can blow up railroads,Rev Jackson believes semi automatic rifles need banned because they may be able to shoot down plains."
