Yep, $340 for a pistol permit http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=315173 Historically, many of the early Gun Control laws were part of the "Jim Crow" laws designed for the express purpose of suppressing Blacks. After the Civil War, southern Democrats couldn't come right out and make it illegal for Blacks to own weapons. But they could design laws that made it prohibitively expensive for the overwhelming majority of Blacks to afford to comply with the law. New York City is following along in this tradition, by making it expensive enough to limit many of those who need to defend themselves the most from being able to afford to do so.
