Federal Court-- Murdock vs Pennsylvania -- 319 US 105 [1942--- "A state cannot impose a license, tax or fee on a Constituttionally protected right."

U.S. Supreme Court--Follet vs Town of McCormick- The US supreme Court broadly and unequivocally held that requiring licensing or registration of any Constitutional right is itself unconstitutional.

U.S.Supreme Court--Haynes vs United States [1968] "that A felon who has a gun cannot be compelled to complete such forms because it violates the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination." Criminals cannot be compelled to register guns.

U.S.Supreme Court--South vs Maryland--[1856] "Local law enforcement has no duty to protect individuals but only a general duty to enforce the laws.

U.S.Supreme Court--DeShaney vs Winnebago County [1989] "The Constitution does not impose a duty on the state and local governments to protect citizens from criminal harm"

Why are we the honest, hard working, tax-paying citizen is FORCED to get a license, pay a fee and pay a tax when the criminal is not required to any of these things. Does our government trust the criminal more than they do their honest citizens? A government that does not trust it's honest, hard-working, tax-paying Citizens with the means of self defense, is not itself worthy of trust. Did the president of the United States, when he took an oath to uphold and defend the Constiitution cross his fingers when he took the oath? If he did not , then how can he say, "I support gun control? I will sign a gun control bill?"

In the face of our constitution and the Court decisions above, why are there over 20,000 gun laws on the books in the United States? Does our government, president and our legislature deserve our trust?
