    Bingo. And that political discourse says you can complain that you have the right, but it also says that if the law passes, this is law so you have to pay the 5 grand. Don't like it, complain, still have to pay the 5 grand. If you think it is unjust, you can take it before the supream court, maybe after a few months actually get before the court, maybe get the law voided,maybe get your 5 grand back, but that is alot of maybes.
    And who knows if you start talking about over throwing the government, you still have to pay the 5 grand, and you get jailed

    But hey, you spoke, no one is refusing you that right, not completely. Just making 5000 reasons why you shouldn't.

    Do you feel the same about gun licensing?

    I agree that this is an infringement. The people have the right to protest whatever they want

    Is it an infringement on the second to make people pay money to exercise the right to bear arms?
