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.
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.
