Buying a gun in America can be an expensive ordeal. Or it can be cheap and easy. It depends on where you live.

The difference between those two Americas was made clear earlier this month when Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein, a member of a Orthodox Jewish patrol society in Brooklyn, was charged with offering an police officer a $6,000 bribe to expedite handgun licenses for his clients.
