GUN REGISTRATION BILL

House Bill No. 760 was introduced in the State House of representatives last week.

The bill was introduced by representatives Cruz, Youngblood, Parker, Wheatley, Bennington and Curry.

The legislation calls for every gun in Pennsylvania to be registered with the state, and each registration must be renewed annually. The registration would cost the gun owner $10 per gun each year. The bill also calls for each gun owner to be fingerprinted, have a back ground check, and to submit pass port-style photos for registration cards. The registration card for each gun would then have to be carried with that gun at all times. Any gun that registration is denied for would then be confiscated by the state police.

House Bill No. 760 was referred to a committee last week, and there's no word on when the house would vote on it.

10 NEWS spoke to local sportsmen who are outraged over the proposed legislation. Those sportsmen say they'll contact their local representatives and ask them to fight this bill.

I have already e-mailed my Reps. If this passes(not that it would) many of us in PA will go broke paying for this BS.

That's insane (referring to House Bill No. 760).

Yes, very insane. One would have to jump through more hoops to own a gun in PA than NFA guns in any other state.

The only thing it is meant to do is make owning a gun such a pain in the you know where that the aveerage joe won't bother with the hassle. Just another anti-gun political trick to get their way.

You know, with all these bills cropping up I am stunned, and even disappointed that there has been not even a public wimper of discontent with what is going on with politicians, and political groups doing their best to destroy the 2A. It's frustrating to think that the American public can be so submissive. That, I guess could be a subject for another thread though.

ROTFLMAO!!! :D

I'm almost shocked that California hadn't thought of that yet though. I hope this doesn't pass in Penn. Good luck over there.

I'd hate to be the state troopers that had to come to your door to do the confiscation.

I have a feeling there would be an aweful lot of boating accidents, people can be so careless when it comes to boating.

I don't think that could pass in PA.
Hunters in that states kill a number of deer during hunting season equal to the population of deer in maine.

Sign the Petition.

We, the undersigned residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, stand together in opposition to any efforts to infringe upon our Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Proposals like House Bill 760, which calls for a statewide registry of all guns and requires gun owners to renew their registration annually for a $10 fee per gun, do nothing to alleviate gun-related crimes. Instead, it only places more of a burden on law-abiding citizens who chose to own firearms.

We don't need more gun control laws in Pennsylvania, and we oppose any effort by the House Judiciary Committee to advance House Bill 760 or any other gun control measures.

There was an article in the Bradford era, thats where I saw it. Philly just needs to break off into the ocean, and float up to New York.

Update: New Version of Gun Registration Bill
Last Update: Apr 30, 2007 8:52 AM

The state lawmaker who introduced a gun registration bill is revising it.

Representative Angel Cruz will hold a press conference Monday morning discussing the new version, one that will only force Philadelphia residents to register their guns.

So, everyone in PA is responsible and trustworthy enough to have guns EXCEPT those in Philly?

lol! What a bunch of Maroons!!

I know why he's doing that. There are enough wacko's to pass a bill that only restricts one area, and most of the residents in Philly are lighting up with Marion Barry and too high to notice, so he figures he can get it passed there... Then comes the inevidible legal challenge where a few people scream "equal protection," so he revises it again to include the rest of the state.

That or he'll go after other cities one-by-one. First Philly, then Pittsburg, then Reading, etc.

Yep, Our CCW permit is already not valid in philly, they are like their own state when it comes to laws and regulations.

jmz5,

thanks for the updates--keep 'em coming.

a law like that is so ludicrous it "would never pass in PA." but it is concerning, nonetheless, especially when now targeted on philly--just another foot-in-the-door.

It never had a chance for the rest of the state, but I don't know about just philly, they have done crazier things.

If feels like they are trying to pass laws city by city, so eventually one might actually have measurably lower crime. Thus giving them the poster-city to refer to to pass gun control more wide-scale of course they will have to ignore all the other major cities they have passed laws in where the rates didn't go down.

While his letter to you didn't really say much, it spoke volumes.

I will translate.

"There is an enormous number of firearms owning, law abiding citizens that vote democrat in my district, and I won't do anything to piss them off. I like my monthly welfare check, and the power that I weild, so I will do nothing that will hurt me either in the long run or short run."
