PA seeks full gun registration

By John Lott Jr. March 23, 2019

Pennsylvania Democrats want to register your guns. On March 15, state House Representatives Angel Cruz (D-Philadelphia), Mary Isaacson (D-Philadelphia) and Mary Jo Daley (D-Montgomery) proposed the Firearms Registration Act, from which only antiques and guns owned by law enforcement would be exempt. Gov. Tom Wolf strongly supports the bill.

"The bill would require Pennsylvanians seeking to do anything with a gun, whether that be own, possess, sell or transfer, to apply for gun registration through State Police," said Cruz. "This (Pennsylvania State Police) database will aid all law enforcement officials with investigations and with tracking missing or stolen firearms."

State police have kept records on all transfers of handguns (both private and through dealers) since 1931 and thus already have a registration system for them. Records on handgun purchases through dealers go back to 1901. The new regulations would add in the private transfer of long guns as well as a $10 fee per gun per year as well as fingerprinting and citizenship verification. .....

Not only is the plan a classic prelude to fascilitating gun confiscation but it also wants to make a per gun charge, per year, of $10 for the 'privelage'. You are encouraged to read also this Ammoland article which includes all the other 'requirements', all being more than draconian. PA firearms owners must challenge this vigorously.
