From the perspective of a long time Second Amendment activist, I have been forced to conclude that New York has some of the most Draconian and dumb gun control laws.

And today, Sen. Grassley sent another letter to the ATF asking for details on what guidance the agency gave to its field agents about responding to Grassley’s requests.

Pricing a right beyond reach; Why People hate Congress

Bellevue v. Bloomy: Pricing a right beyond reach; Why people hate Congress

Compared to the price of fingerprinting by the King County Sheriff’s Department, the cost of getting fingerprinted in New York City so one can subsequently pay $340 to exercise the right to keep a handgun in one’s own home is astronomical.
