Kwong v. Bloomberg

 

Date filed: April 5, 2011
Court: New York Southern District Court
Status: Pending
Attorney(s): David Jensen
Short Description:

SAF is challenging New York City’s handgun licensing regulations, which require excessive fees totaling $434.25 for issuance and renewal of a “residence premises” handgun license.

Long Description:

This SAF lawsuit challenges New York City’s regulations that require city residents to pay an additional $340 fee (as opposed to smaller fees outside the city) for issuance or renewal of “residence premises” handgun licenses.

In addition the other fees, there is also a $94.25 “fingerprint fee” for handgun licenses.

The “residence premises” license is required to possess a handgun in your home in New York City.

Excessive licensing fees by the city burden the constitutional rights of city residents by charging them $434.25 to own firearms in their own home and protect their own property.
