PA Democrat Pushing Restrictive Gun Registration Bill

posted on March 13, 2017

A Pennsylvania state legislator is pushing a measure that would require gun owners to register every gun they own now and purchase in the future.

According to a report at lancasteronline.com, Democrat state Rep. Angel Cruz’s measure, House Bill 510, states: “No person within this Commonwealth may possess, harbor, have under the person's control, transfer, offer for sale, sell, give, deliver or accept a firearm unless the person is the holder of a valid registration certificate for the firearm.”

The measure would also require a photo ID specifically for gun ownership; fingerprinting of every gun owner; separate, state-issued, $10 certificates for every gun owned by an individual; annual renewal of gun registrations; and all guns to be unloaded and disabled, unless in the immediate possession of the owner.
