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.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
