Firearms Registration Act Introduced in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania state Democrats introduce HB0768, known as the Firearms Registration Act.
Pennsylvania state Democrats introduce HB0768, known as the Firearms Registration Act.

Harrisburg, PA-(Ammoland.com)- A new bill introduced in Pennsylvania would establish a gun registry within the state.

HB0768 is known as the Firearms Registration Act. The Democrats that introduced the bill were Mary Louise Isaacson (D), Angel Cruz (D), and Mary Jo Daley (D). Last Friday, the General Assembly referred the bill to the committee on judiciary.

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.

The bill makes no mention of how the state will enforce the law.

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 bill’s sponsor responded to our request for comment.

    I’m guessing that 34 people in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will register their guns, along with perhaps 2 or 3 in Harrisburg.

    It’s interesting that the nazis were the ones that had created a gun registry along with Stalin,Hitler and others while installing a socialist government in which ALL Jewish citizens that had guns were raided first then the rest of the people who had guns were systematically raided!! I now have to wonder weather or not the Democratic Party is the new day NAZI /socialist party! The similarities are actually very very disturbing as to what is happening in the United States today!

    More gun control laws have been introduced and passed by Democrats at the state and federal level with Trump in office than was passed during the entire 8 years of Obama.. The democrats are using the anger against Trump as a way to energize their base at the local, county and state level.. Our country is on the cusp of a social collapse. The hatred of Trump is driving the whack jobs to the street and they have decided our rights, lives and future do not matter. This means unrest in the street.

    I left PA almost 30 years ago and haven’t regretted it since. PA has slowly morphed into a wannabee totalitarian state. Unfortunately, PA is just one of many states that are paving the way for the entire country becoming a totalitarian society. The Left in the USA has copied the playbook of many past and doomed rulers, “All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people.” Adolf Hitler Another… Read more »

    1. Proposed bill is an over-reach and if passed will never be successfully enforced
    2. I respect the second amendment and the right of individuals to own guns. Not RPG’s not grenades, etc. Some sensible limits on arms are OK
    3. We all register cars, etc. I’m in favor of user-friendly registration that takes five mins and includes serial #’s
    4. Pls don’t invoke God in this discussion. Constitution also states there shall be no official religion.
    5. Common sense here would be good – not hysterics from ban all gun people or government conspiracy dopes.

    1. Agree. 2. The 2A says “arms”, not “guns”. At the time of its writing, most cannon were privately owned. 3. What is the point of registration? I will cost millions to implement and maintain what will be a massive database, and will – demonstrably – do nothing to stop crime. Also, per Haynes v. United States (1968), criminals do not need to register their firearms so as not to violate their 5th Amendment rights regarding self incrimination, so this would amount to nothing but an infringement on the law-abiding. 4. Mentioning God does not constitute declaring an official religion.… Read more »

In fact, religion is only directly referenced one time in the Third Clause of Article six, “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States”. In defiance of the Constitution, we now have democrats applying religious test on other… Read more »

Miss one date and you become a felon. Make the state safer by making it so difficult to own a firearm that only the criminals will own one. Ridiculous and foolishness.

    SCOTUS have determined that the practice of collecting a “poll tax” , a fee to be paid as a precondition of exercising one’s right to vote, is unconstitutional. I believe they would view charging a “gun tax”, a fee to be paid as a precondition of exercising one’s right to own a firearm, would fall into the same category. If this bill becomes law, I can envision massive civil disobedience, and perhaps some serious pushback as more and more “violators” are found and prosecuted. The costs of enforcement will far outweigh any benefits, and I’ll lay high stakes at long… Read more »

They are in lock step with the whole party and some republicans, also. Unless they are proven conservatives with no blemishes on their record vote them to the sidelines, republicans and democrats. That is the one and only way to save our Republic short of a civil war and we should think of that as a last and final solution to this big problem

Major non-compliance has been the only result in other states that have attempted similar types of registration/banning legislation.

    Historically, initial non-compliance is expected by the lawmakers. But as one by one gun owners get into any trouble he or she will then lose their rights. When guns were outlawed in the past, 1930 Germany for example, not everyone turned in their guns. They slowly were taken away by children, who were schooled, turning in their parents. Neighbors turning in neighbors and simple slips of the tongue ended up with someone knocking on the door and the firearm owner was in trouble.
    Its all about people control in the end.

    Exactly!!! Why do these idiots keep getting elected…..because people just vote straight party tickets and not for an individual!

    Not all of us in PA vote for these idiots. But unfortunately I live in Philadelphia and it’s a Democrat run city bc we have liberals. We are also a sanctuary city and us republicans aren’t enough to stop it! Don’t condemn the whole state!

    Article 1 Section 21 of Pennsylvania’s Constitution states “ The right of the people to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned.”

    This BS should go down in flames! If not, the house and senate need removed and replaced with constitutionally aware citizen!

    This is just a bill. It’s not law and has no way that this will ever pass in PA. Last time I looked PA was a state that people go hunting. So if I want to hunt in PA do I need to register my hunting rifle before I go hunting? This bill won’t even make it out of committee. Then even if by some slim chance it ever becomes law, it needs to pass constitutional muster.
