    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.

    I verified the story with the morning call Christian Berg from the Morning Call. Its no joke!

    thats horrible, to own a gun will be a hassle to keep up with the permits, and make sure you have the card on you at all times?

    Click on this link and it will take you to The House of Representatives Site. There you will find a list of Representatives. Click on the names of those backing the bill and you will be able to send each an email. Also I'm listing their addresses and phone numbers. This is a serious threat to us all and none of us can afford to sit idly by. Please let these people know how you feel.

    This bill is insane. If this is for government funding, there are better ways to do it. Secondly, do you even have to register non-sporting (self defense) firearms?

    Lastly, how do you even register a firearm?

    Thanks for the info Scott. I have heard of this before. They claim it will help keep guns out of the wrong hands. That is completely ridiculous what it will do is make it a hassle for law abiding citizens to get personal protection when the fact is that it's not registered guns the knuckleheads are using to kill each other it's black market guns. bottom line is I should have the to protect myself and not at the price of being treated like a criminal to do it. Target the real criminals not sportsman and law abiding citizens.
