    This incremental eroding of CT's 2A is troubling... And the financial burden is worse

    wtf?? thats a lot of dough. but it says it applies only to a criminal records check for potential employment? I don't see a mention of pistol permit relation

    and what the heck is a "letters of good conduct search"? I've never heard of such a thing

    Does this apply to background checks for permits? If so, one potential tactic to take in opposing high fees for background checks (BC) is to liken them to a poll tax. WE KNOW we have a clean record, and WE as individuals who are submitting ourselves to it don't need or want to have to undergo the check as we know it is unnecessary. If it is truly a "public" safety issue and if the public/government wants the BC then it should rightfully be paid for out of the general fund. The government wants the info, we don't.
