Gun violence is expensive. In spite of that, gun nuts in Arkansas, fueled by the NRA, fought to reduce concealed weapon license fees. The decrease in fees will certainly increase gun proliferation, the real objective of the NRA. The reduction in fees will cost Arkansas $1.4 million a year in lost fees.
On Wednesday, Feb 7, Governor Hutchinson signed the bill into law.
👎House Bill 1036 and companion Senate Bill 17 will decrease the fee for a concealed weapons license from $100 to $50 dollars.
