My thoughts exactly. And poor people are often forced to live in high crime areas where the police don't even bother to patrol. So of course they
need their own protection.
I feel this will lead to more arrests of people who couldn't afford their license but needed protection, so they kept their guns, and it will also
lead to people feeling forced to commit some other crime to make the money needed to buy the license so more arrests for small time drug dealers or
shoplifting merchandise to sell, and of course it will lead to more guns being sold illegaly on the black market so it isn't registered, which in
turn will lead to more arrests being made on illegal gun owners and sellers and more gun thefts so they can sell them on the black market, so more
burglaries and more burglary arrests too. And more deaths that will take place during a home invasion becuase someone is so desperate to steal guns
since a gun is such a hot commodity now since its cheaper to buy one off the street than it is to buy just the license nevermind gun ammo and safe and
And if I was in a situation where I had to save my life or someone else's, I'd rather do that and then face the charges for owning an illegal
firearm cause then at least you are alive to even face those charges to begin with. Alive is better than dead, right? I'm just checking because
everything seems to be the opposite as I remember growing up...
Of course the right thing to do is to do what it takes to save up the money for the license, but we know we can't always count on everyone to do the
right thing, and so, rather than a decrease in gun violence, I think we will see what I have outlined above... I dunno, but it seems like they just
want more people behind bars... They must've made a deal with the privatized prison owners.
