SAF & NYSRPA Sue NYC Over Permit Fees

April 5, 2011

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg that alleges New York City’s $340 fee for a permit to keep a handgun in the home is “excessive and…impermissibly burdens the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”

What this means...
It means nothing yet, as the case is pending. However it may, and probably will, be the end of the rather high handgun license application and renewal fees. This page will be updated as the case progresses.
