    Some cities like Chicago has registration of guns for civilians. This is something new was not before. The application fee is $100 plus $15 per gun each year. Resident of Chicago like to have guns, pay for it. Look like tax on guns. Do not be surprised one day tax on breathing Chicago's air.

    Several reasons for this, all bad.

    First and foremost, it makes an instant confiscation list.

    If the city "allows" some types of guns, but not others, this is how they enforce the ban.

    It's designed to discriminate against the poor, who already have enough financial burden.

    It's designed to discourage collectors. Let's assume you have a collection with 20 handguns, and you keep them for 30 years. That's $15 per year, per gun, x 30 years, plus the original $100 each. Total is $8000, for the "priviledge" of owning a gun collection.

    And keep in mind the tax will only go up as time goes on.

    When I lived in Ill. many years ago you had to register yourself as a gun owner and everyone wlse in your family who might own a gun had to register as well. I now live in Arizona. HEHEHEHEehheehehe!! But it will someday eventually get here. Another way to make the buck. (Rich.inAz.orinnameonly)

    To hell with that.
    Its unconstitutional
    You've got the right to own a weapon without these dirt bags sucking money out of your pockets.
    To hell with Chicago and anyone who thinks that garbage is a good idea.

    In NYC the fee for owning a handgun is enough to make it prohibitive

    Well... like it or not - SCOTUS' recent opinions appear to allow "reasonable" methods of controlling firearms as long as they are not onerous... it remains to be seen whether Chicago's recent ordinances requiring registration, a training program coupled with a fee will be struck down or upheld.

    Unless a given state is predisposed to allow free, unrestricted ownership, it appears some registration requirements coupled with a modest fee structure will be allowed.

    This is sure to be only the tip of the iceberg!

    regards all,

    Jay

    The National Firearms Act of 1934 was nothing more than a revenue stream for
    feds. It did was only under the guise of protecting ourselves from ourselves for the good of the public and its safety. Now who could argue with that? A $200 tax on weapons they decided were inappropriate for the general public to own. Liberals and Dems all love to pose as Heroes of the people. Non-Sportsman and anti-gun people eat up this line of Sh*t with a shovel. We all know that anytime there is anti-gun legislation there will always be a ban, a compromise and a cost. That cost always results in you the sportsman, law abiding tax payer to pay a fee / tax and the government to resolve the horrible issue with your hard earned money.

    The National Firearms Act of 1934 is used as a model for all anti-gun legislation.
    "For Public Safety" We all know that its a fact that criminals do not follow the law. They do not follow or adhere to any kind of gun laws. This is why we call them criminals.

    Banning and depriving the general public from owning weapons is simply a vehicle for the Fed Gov to achieve their hidden agenda consisting of satisfying their need to create a voting block of the anti-gun, anti-sportsman and the tree hugging bunny lickers who don't eat anything with a face. The second part is to not really ban guns but to present the threat to ban guns with the end result being a compromise resulting in law abiding tax payers having to pay for the Constitutional Right to own a weapon. They, the feds play the game very well and noting has really changed since they started making money from citizens regarding guns and any other area of our lives that they can see an opportunity to take money from us by force uh.... I mean legislation.

    All that is necessary is for continued complacency and apathy among our brotherhood of sportsmen and the feds will continue to grind away until they regulate all shooting ports, all weapons, ammunition, lead and anything they can to get your money, control you on a personal level and destroy hunting and sport shooting. They don't give a damn about anything but your money.

    Is it time to VOTE yet?
