NJ Governor Proposes 2,000% Increase on Gun Permits and Licenses to Carry

Dan Bongino: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has proposed a 2,000% increase in the cost of firearms permits and carry licenses, according to the Washington Examiner.
The Examiner reports that “Under Murphy’s budget proposal, the firearm identification card will jump from $5 to $100, the owner’s permit will go up from $2 to $40, and the permit to carry, the largest increase, will go from $20 to $400. For all three licenses and permits, the price would increase by 2,000%”

The governor also wants an ammunition excise tax of 10% and firearms excise tax of 2.5%.

Now before all the leftists get into a snit about the actual costs, remember that you are the ones who panic at the idea of a voter ID card costing 5 bucks.

Isn't this jerk getting recalled also?

Augustus, I personally blame you, brah, for having this anti-freedom jerkface in office.

I thought you "knew a guy".

WTH!

Murphy is an asshat and our firearms laws in New Jersey are stupid.

As for the increase in the price of a carry permit that's kind of funny. They could have increased it to $5,000 and it wouldn't impact anyone since WE DON'T GET TO CARRY. Out of 9million residents there are about 3,000 permits.

Ummm, you're not allowed to carry?

I live in a socialist utopia-state and people still carry here. Now they're trying to fight it, but too many freedom thinkers still live here, so it's an uphill battle.

Nope. Only to the range or to a gunsmith and then it has to be in the trunk and separate from the ammunition or you get a 5 year vacation in Rahway State.

It's a plan to force poor people to have guns without permits.

The arrests and jailings will increase exponentially 😧

Dayum!

We just have a class, which is pretty much waived if you're a vet, and you pay a fee and I can haul my boom-stick on my hov-a-round all day long.

en.wikipedia.org...

In New Jersey, anyone seeking to purchase firearms (one does not need to obtain a Firearm Purchaser Identification card to own, possess in the home, transport firearms to and from authorized target range, to a gunsmith for purposes of repair, or to the woods or fields of the state for purposes of hunting) is required to obtain a lifetime Firearm Purchaser Identification card, commonly referred to as FID, for the purchase of rifles and shotguns. To purchase a handgun, a separate permit is needed from the Chief of Police of their municipality, or the Superintendent of State Police if the municipality does not have a local police department. A permit is required for each handgun to be purchased and expires after 90 days but may be extended for an additional 90 days at the discretion of the Chief of Police or Superintendent of State Police. These, like the initial Firearms Purchaser Identification Card (FID), are provided to applicants on a shall-issue basis. They require in-depth application questioning, multiple references and background checks via the State Bureau of Identification and New Jersey State Police


GTFO!!!! NJ is allowed to infringe on the 2nd Amendment in this manner, but requiring any form of godddamned identification, even a free government issued ID card, to vote somehow violates the 15th Amendment!?!? EFFFFFFFF New Jersey with a nailbat, man! This nonsense must be stopped or the US is playing on limited time.

Does your state have low gun violence statistics? If so, maybe the laws are actually working.
Also has burglary been on the rise, or no.

I'm an Alaskan... I am allowed to open carry, carry concealed, have a fully loaded firearm on my dashboard, one under the seat, two in my waistband, and one on the rack all fully loaded as I drive down the road with zero problems from the law. No permit required for any of it, no hunting license required for anything other than hunting, no state background checks, no nothing. That's called "freedom" not this BS you Lesser 48 folks have allowed yourselves to be cursed with.

We're typically middle of the pack. But we have lovely Newark, Camden and Trenton as the primary culprits.

Explain how we "lesser" 48 folks "have allowed" these BS gun laws to exist? I live in Upstate NY, belong to the NRA and support the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, who have done their best in representing gun owners in NY. I have always voted for candidates who are pro gun. Nothing I've done has prevented Cuomo from passing additional gun laws and I don't have the luxury of packing up and moving, since my wife has another 7 years until her retirement. Thankfully, unlike the poster from New Jersey, I've been able to carry concealed since 1988.

Poor people commit more gun violence. The law should help with that.
