NYC Gun Fee “Violates Equal Protection”

From The Gun Mag:

The lawsuit challenges New York City’s $340 fee for a three-year handgun license, which is the highest such fee imposed for a gun possession license anywhere in the United States. SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb noted that the fee anywhere else in the entire state of New York is $10, but the city is exempted from that law, The city’s higher fee, he said, “discourages city residents from exercising their civil rights while violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

From Guns.com:

Emily Miller, Senior Editor for Opinion for The Washington Times, won the Clark Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Journalism because of her “Emily Gets Her Gun” report.
