Cost of pistol permit in NYC
Just got an email from a friend on the cost of a NY City pistol permit (generally only premises permits are issued, that don't let you carry one). The cost: $340 for the license plus $99 for the fingerprinting fee, a total of $439.00. And it has to be renewed every three years.
Kevin of the Smallest Minority made a comment, which for some reason the spam filter didn't like:
I am overwhelmingly curious to find out if Margaret Johnson had her premises permit
yanked, or if NYC fails to allow her to renew it.
Ms. Johnson is the 56 year-old Harlem resident who shot a mugger with a .357 Magnum
back in September. Her story is that she was on her way to the range to practice.
She just happened to be carrying her revolver loaded and accessible which is verboten
in NYC on only a premises permit. Yet being black, female, elderly and disabled
(lacking only "lesbian" in the pantheon of Political Correctness), the
police decided that the shooting was justified and she was not charged.
Somehow I think that the City would want to correct their error of allowing her
a handgun, and that either her permit would have been pulled, or when she tries
to renew, her application will be rejected.
And, of course, the media won't find that to be worthy of a story.
Call me cynical.
