Posted on 03/16/2019 8:23:29 PM PDT by vannrox
A new bill introduced in Pennsylvania would establish a gun registry within the state.
We, Americans, were all warned that when they try to restrict and take away the second amendment, that our country was gone and beyond hope of redemption.
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.
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 bills sponsor responded to our request for comment.
Eh, I would just pretend my guns were lost in a boating accident.
I hate Pennsylvania Nazis.
No,its beyond time. Total war on socalism and marxism.
Hey! How can you forfit a RIGHT?
“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.”
Tar and feathers - the ONLY thing that will stop this continued oppression is for the people to rise up and say no more.
The execrable James Carvile once described the Keystone State as “Philadelphia to the east, and Pittsburgh to the west, with Alabama in between”.
If every cop in PA is prepared to kiss his family goodbye each morning before he reports for duty, then let the door to door searches for guns begin.
Watch for a nutbag governor in Harrisburg to declare, “You have your orders from me, now carry them out. Seize all unregistered guns and arrest their owners!!”
§ 21. Right to bear arms. The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.
Amd they will just pretend to SWAT you at 4am.
If they do this in CO I will simply ignore it.
They do not regard what they are doing as infringement or questioning anything.
They need to be told otherwise. else they just keep doing more of it until you are all regulated out of your firearms while being told they haven’t done anything that violates your 2a rights.
They are doing the Goebbels dance and just repeating the big lie while all the while disarming you.
We all know libtards strategies when it comes to disarming people.
Republicans have the majority in the state Legislature (110-91) and Senate (26-21). Even if they didn't, PA is "the Deer Hunter State", and even the Democrats outside of Philadelphia wouldn't support it. The bill isn't going anywhere.
Not if you pretend to SWAT them at 2am...
That there original post detailing the house bill that they introduced deserves the ol' Peji Sluta...
To paraphrase from “Unintended Consequences”, hog feeding time is near.
The Sheriff in my county will tell them to go fish.
If they did this in commierado I think most sheriffs would ignore it.
The bill’s three RAT sponsors should be swinging from the tallest trees in Pennsylvania!
I know mine would and 50+ others have declared that they would back in 2012. In any case I will ignore their gun control BS even if I stand completely alone.
