If the NY fee is too high, and seen as a means to reduce availability, it may well fail the reasonability test. I have no issue with that.
The analogy between cars and gun works sometimes, but not here as you correctly point out. Registration still isn't 2nd Amendment infringement. As as for the national DB on drugs? it would substantially reduce drug sales, and there's a skilled lobby that would be vocal against it, sort of like the NRA, but not.
He doesn't have, and doesnt want, your guns. John McCain just call the president of Iran a monkey, maybe your first vote was a reasonable choice.
Sorry, my post is in the wrong indent. To TickledPink's questions below: Connor's point is that those activities aren't specifically mentioned in the Constitution, and that the proscription against "infringing" the right to bear arms is violated by any fee on gun registration. Courts have held otherwise.
You're the historian, so you should know that reasonable fees are NOT considered, by any court in nearly 200 years, to be an infringement.
Rick I don't know why you removed my post pointing out that I was not disrespecting LU. Oh wait, there was that knot on the head thing. Sorry MO4, but you completely mis-read my post. I can only imagine followup comments from our usual suspects on their disrespect of LU, but I have no such position. Please click on my avatar and read a few of my posts. You'll find me quite supportive of LU.
You answered your own question. Fees on registration. Nothing in the constitution proscribes registration . . . in fact a well regulated militia might be considered one with a good inventory of arms. And, still nobody taking your arms.
I have a humanities and a science degree, I'm making fun of other posters in this thread. I guess my writing skills would suggest I say "other" useless humanities stuff. But, you could've still miss the sarcasm, again my fault. I apologize.

Yes to background checks, no to drug tests, unless that also includes alcohol.
