Charging Fees For CCW Permit (In Wisconsin)

Wisconsin has become the 49th State to allow/require the issuance of permits to carry concealed weapons. But, it charges fees to obtains such a license. I maintain that such charges are unconstitutional on the basis of the constitutional provisions cited below as the full exercise of that basic right no less that the one-time charging of "Poll Taxes" to vote were excluded from public law.

WISCONSIN CONSTITUTION (ARTICLE-1, SECTION-25): The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose.

District Of Columbia Vs. Heller; 554 U. S. 570 (2008)

Harper Vs. Virginia Board Of Education; 383 US 663 (1966).

Section 1: The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice-President, for electors for President or Vice-President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay a poll tax or other tax.
Section2: The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
