Rome Police were joined in their investigation by the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, through the state Department of Health, officials said.

Lanigan said Cimo was in possession of three handguns and several other firearms — and that he did not have the proper pistol permit to own the handguns.

“He just didn’t get around to it,” Lanigan explained about the permit. He said Cimo knew he needed a permit for the handguns.

“He stated that he had the guns as a hobby and for self defense,” Lanigan stated, and had started collecting the weapons in 2017.

“Permits” are licenses of a right (liberty). The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled a state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution. A person cannot, and should not be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)

This would only be illegal in about six states. It is a great way to make criminals out of law abiding citizens for the sake of an agenda.

"...the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)"


It is not a 'privilege', and it is not 'granted' by the Constitution.

Even thought the outcome was correct, it used flawed reasoning.

Blasphemous: "Lanigan said Cimo was in possession of three handguns and several other firearms — and that he did not have the proper pistol permit to own the handguns."

Can our form of government, our system of justice, survive if one can be denied a freedom because he might abuse it? — HARLON CARTER
