But I do think that the $10 fee (or tax if one chooses to call it) is a small price to pay to make it easier to keep firearms out of the hands of felons and / or wife beaters.
I have two rebuttals. The first is that the FOID doesn't really make it any harder for determined criminals to get a gun.

The second is that the problem the FOID card is supposed to solve is already solved by the NICS check at the point of purchase.
