Posted on March 12, 2019 by John Crump Pennsylvania state Democrats introduce HB0768, known as the Firearms Registration Act. Harrisburg, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- A new bill introduced in Pennsylvania would establish a gun registry within the state. HB0768 is known as the Firearms Registration Act. The Democrats that introduced the bill were Mary Louise Isaacson (D), Angel Cruz (D), and Mary Jo Daley (D). Last Friday, the General Assembly referred the bill to the committee on judiciary. The bill would require gun owners in the Keystone State to register their firearms with the Pennsylvania State Police. Owners would have to provide the police with the make, model, and the serial numbers of all their guns. Along with the application that the gun owner must swear to under oath, the gun owner would have to submit fingerprints, two photographs that are no older than 30 days and go through a background check for each firearm that they own. This background check is the same one that they must go through to purchase a gun. In addition to this requirement, they must also provide the Pennsylvania State Police with their home and work address, telephone number, social security number, date of birth, age, sex, and citizenship. This requirement is more information than a person needs to vote. If the State Police rejects the person's application, then they will have ten days to appeal the decision. The owner must turn their firearms into the State Police within three days of receiving notification of the rejection. If a person does not appeal the decision within ten days, their right is forfeit. A gun owner cannot transfer any unregistered firearm. Anyone caught with an unregistered gun is guilty of a crime even if they are unaware of the firearm registration status. Also just holding an unregistered firearm at a range is a crime. The gun owner must keep all firearms unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock. If a firearms owner doesn't secure their firearm that way, they would be guilty of a crime. This rule even applies to homes with no children. The gun owner has 48 hours to update the State Police if they change jobs, phone numbers, addresses, or anything else on the application. If they do not update the State Police, then they could be prosecuted for violating the law. The certificate which will cost $10 per firearm will expire after one year. The gun owner would have to start the process over again to renew their certification. This process must be done 60 days before the certificate expires. The procedure can get confusing for gun owners with large collections. The bill makes no mention of how the state will enforce the law. Other states that have tried gun registration and bans have seen limited success. New Jersey has had zero magazines turned in since their magazine ban went into effect. New York saw nearly one million firearms owners defy the state law to register their “assault weapons.” The same thing played out in Connecticut when only 50,000 out of 350,000 registered their semi-automatic rifles. Expanding a registry to all firearms will be impossible to enforce without conducting door to door searches of houses. It is unclear how these Democrats plan to deal with this reality. None of the bill’s sponsor responded to our request for comment.

  6. Yes hundreds of Bills are introduced and many don't see daylight but I am in NY and what may be far off track becomes reality. Don't want to get into a big political discussion here but this type of legislation is not just a NY thing. Best regards and keep the faith, your pard, Deacon Henry Check your NRA_ILA sites also Bearing Arms. The NRA site as you all probably know is a State by State tracking of new legislation. VA This session: RICHMOND, Va. (WSET) -- Governor Ralph Northam has announced a comprehensive package of legislation that he claims will prevent gun violence and improve the safety of Virginia’s citizens and communities. He said the package includes measures to require universal background checks; establish an Extreme Risk Protective Order; reinstate Virginia’s One Handgun a Month law; prohibit individuals subject to final protective orders from possessing firearms; ban assault firearms; prevent children from accessing firearms; and require individuals to report lost or stolen firearms to law enforcement. PA Pennsylvania Governor Calls for Total Ban on all Semi-Automatic Weapons by JORDAN MICHAELS on JANUARY 10, 2019 Related Tags: Buzz, Gun Control, News, R2KBA Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf believes no one should have semi-automatic firearms. (Photo: Governor Tom Wolf Facebook) Just one day after a gun-rights rally in Pittsburgh that attracted hundreds of gun owners protesting the city’s proposed “assault weapons” ban, Democratic Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf voiced his support for a complete ban on all semi-automatic weapons. When asked by KDKR Newsradio host Larry Richert whether the state of Pennsylvania should restrict or eliminate semi-automatic weapons, Gov. Wolf responded, “I think they should. I support that. Those are the weapons that killed those innocent people in Squirrel Hill and have done so much damage in schools and in places all around the country. We shouldn’t have those [guns].” Though Wolf incorporates all semi-automatic firearms in his answer to Richert’s question (the Squirrel Hill murderer used handguns and a rifle), he walked back his stance later that day in a tweet that only mentioned “semi-automatic rifles.” The governor doesn’t want to take away anyone’s guns, of course. Later in the segment, Richert commented, “People from one side or the other go to the complete extreme – you’re trying to take away my weapons, and that’s not the case.” “No,” Wolf agreed. And yet, the head of Pennsylvania’s executive branch hopes the state legislature will implement restrictions on gun ownership similar to those proposed by Pittsburgh’s city council, which include a ban on some semi-automatic rifles. SEE ALSO: Key Case Challenging Fed Ban of Handgun Sales to Non-State Residents Gains Momentum As GunsAmerica reported previously, Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto recently announced a trio of gun rights restrictions, including an “assault weapons” ban, an accessories/magazine/ammunition ban, and a gun confiscation scheme. Peduto’s announcement is likely nothing more than grandstanding because Pennsylvania state law prohibits local governments from passing ordinances that contradict state law. But Gov. Wolf hopes the legislature will sign on to Peduto’s proposals. “I mean even the president is talking about eliminating, making bump stocks illegal. I think we ought to have a universal background check,” he said on KDKR. “We should not have people (with) easy access to the weapons that killed all those innocent victims in Squirrel Hill. We’re all in different ways trying to figure out what is the way to recognize the rights of gun owners but also make ourselves safe. I think this is a good conversation to have.” It’s unclear whether Wolf will be able to implement his gun ban dreams. Republicans have a 21-seat majority in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and a 7-seat majority in the Senate. *
  7. Yes it’s happening. In PA and VA and federally among others.
  8. Didn't want to hijack the "I need a new place to live" thread from the WIRE and I too need a new place too live but VA Assembly, the home of the NRA, opens with 34 anti gun bills and PA Gov calls for a total ban on ALL semi-automatic firearms and Sen Feinstein introduces Assault Weapon Ban 2019. Oregon among others has also started legislation. So no other government concerns but this? Is there a pattern here?
