"But the unreasonable thing was the $100 many people will not be able to afford. And that's a shame because they will continue to be vulnerable to the drug dealers and gangbangers."
"I wouldn't be surprised if it took three months in the face of all the difficulties being thrown up to us citizens who are only striving to protect ourselves," said McDonald, 76, the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.
