    except the annual fees.  We can have fees for cars, cause they are not in the bill of rights.  The equivalent would be fees for free speech, not exactly a winner.  (though there are fees for parades and other march-like things sometimes, but they are very, very limited.

      I am happy to fully subsidize the costs of gun training, licensing, and the rest if it means saner gun policy.  As a nation, we already subsidize free speech through police presence at various events and such (yeah, i know, sometimes the police are not there to protect the protestors, but they often are).

      I am willing to throw a lot of money at this problem, as long as its a real solution.

      I guess what I am saying is that while I would love to punish the gun nuts by making them pay for their pursuit, I would much prefer sane gun regulations existed.  If the money issue derails gun control, I'll pay for gun control.
