    Everybody sit down. Mayor Bloomberg insisted the city should reduce lic fees

    Mayor Bloomberg insisted yesterday the city should reduce its high gun-licensing and renewal fees to stave off a likely lawsuit, but the City Council continued to express doubts about a bill that would sharply lower those costs.

    The mayor, a national voice on curbing gun violence, said his fears come in the wake of the US Supreme Court striking down Chicago's gun ban in June.

    He wants to slash the $340 fee for original or renewal applications to between $25 and $110, depending on the type of permit.

    "We want to be in compliance with the law as we understand the Chicago decision was made. We don't want to lose the ability to have reasonable controls. If we have controls that the courts have ruled are too onerous or too unfair, we could lose" other gun-regulation measures that are in place, he said.

    Bloomberg should reduce his time in office. To "zero".

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I think we should charge him a $100,000,000 daily "permit" fee to be mayor.
