McDonald Applies for Gun Permit
Two years after filing a lawsuit that ultimately forced the city to dismantle its 28-year-old handgun ban, Otis McDonald walked into a police station Monday and applied for a permit allowing him to keep a gun at home.
The process took only 20 minutes, but McDonald said some of the requirements to obtain the permit seemed excessive. And though a gun permit was worth any price for him, he said he is concerned that the $100 fee could deter some law-abiding citizens from buying a handgun.
Reading the article through, you find this tidbit:
- As of Monday, police said they had accepted 83 applications for gun permits since the process started two weeks ago.
We did notice that not a single gangbanger applied for one of the eighty-three permits though.
