  1. No citizen in ANY state should have to ask the government permission or pay them ANY money to exercise a fundamental right that our Constitution gives us. If one doesn't have any federal prohibitors you should be able to carry a gun, no permit, and no money to the govt. huge joke. By that rationale It's not even a right the states (most states) see it as a privilege. Total joke. This state just sucks and Molloy isn't gonna listen.
