How Long Should We Wait for Our Rights?

May 11, 2013

Wait here.  I’ll be right back with your application.

Wait right here.  I'll be right back with your application.

“I only want to regulate your rights.  I promises it is for the public good, and won’t cost much at all.” 

Yeah, that is how it starts.  Then the government raids the “dedicated funds” and uses them for other purposes.  Next, it slow-walks the permit process.  After all, the agency claims to be short staffed because they don’t have the money to pay needed manpower.  Then they propose new fee increases.

That is what they did with firearms permits in California,  Illinois,  New Jersey,  New York1 and New York 2 and Washington, DC.  A New York CCW permit can take 2 years.  An Illinois FOID card takes more than two months.  Adding a name to a FFL in California takes several months.  This is an old complaint of mine, but I hate to see history repeat itself.

The power to regulate is the power to politicize and control.

      Welcome, Old N. F. O.
      Yeah, this is not good. I hope news like this wakes up a few million gun owners. We could argue about how many million would be enough.
