Gov. Murphy’s hike on gun fees is about control, range owner says

It’s been just under a week since Gov. Phil Murphy outlined his $38.6 billion state budget, including a proposed $9 million hike on gun fees and taxes. And that’s sent shockwaves through New Jersey’s community of licensed gun owners and second amendment supporters.
As laid out in Murphy’s budget blueprint, gun fees would increase from $5 to $100 for a firearms purchaser identification card, and from no charge to $50 for a duplicate ID card. They’d increase from $2 to $50 for a permit to purchase; from $20 to $400 for applications or renewals of gun-carry permits; and from $15 to $45 for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System review for firearms purchases.
