“Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.” ~Thomas Jefferson
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.
