    would be a good case for the SAF that is a huge amount to be charged for a fee....

    Seems like an attempt to make it too expensive only later in the next few years to say "See? No one wants to carry a gun, only 100 civilians applied so let's sunset this law and move on."

    I agree that fee is way high but that could be lowered in the legislative process and even if its not it would be a step in the right direction for a place like NJ.

    The bill in question:
    http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2010/Bills ... 264_I1.HTM

    Fee now: $20 (plus fingerprinting?)
    Fee with the bill: $500
    License term now: 2 years
    License term with the bill: 1 year
    Qualification interval now: 2 years?
    Qualification interval with the bill: 6 months

    Oh, and it may be shall-issue, but could be heavily and irregularly encumbered:
    The above text is existing law and would not be modified by the bill.

    I don't think it constitutes a shall-issue bill. I honestly wonder if somebody thinks there are too many permits issued in NJ at the moment. The cost increases 50 fold and the qualification interval 4 fold. Unless NJ has lots of millionaires with tons of free time running around, I predict an overall decrease in the number of permits.

    NJ doesn't consider all that onerous, burdensome nonsense to be an "infringement"?
