It’s hard to imagine that this bill would pass in either house of the PA General Assembly. Republicans hold a 26-21 majority in the Senate and a 110-91 majority in the House.

Pennsylvania Submits Firearms Registration Bill.A new bill introduced in Pennsylvania, HB0768, would boldly establish a gun registry within the state. The Democrats that introduced the bill areMary Louise Isaacson (D), Angel Cruz (D), and Mary Jo Daley (D). The Pennsylvania General Assembly has referred the bill to the Committee on the Judiciary.
This bill would require gun owners in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to register their firearms ANNUALLY with the Pennsylvania State Police. Owners would have to provide the police with the make, model, and the serial numbers of all their guns as well as pay $10/gun…every year.
The title tells you everything you need to know it’s known as the Firearms Registration Act. This governmental cash grab will cost $10 per-gun and gun owners will have to go through another background check for each individual firearm that they already own and you know they’re gonna make you pay for that. Oh, and the background check is the same one you have to go through to purchase the gun in the first place.
So you went through a background check to purchase the gun and now you have to have the same background check to register the gun and continue ownership!?! Hmm now that’s not all, you have to also give the Pennsylvania State Police your home address, your work address, your telephone number, your social security number, your date of birth, your age sex and citizenship…most of which they should already have anyway from the process of you getting your permit. This is all more information than you need to give to vote.
