Pennsylvania Gun Licensing Scheme Proposed

posted on November 2, 2015

Democrat Pennsylvania State Sen. Art Haywood has proposed a law (SB 1029) requiring Pennsylvanians to obtain a license to own any handgun, in a “permit to purchase” scheme similar to those that have kept lawful citizens disarmed and defenseless against murder in New Jersey, New York and Illinois.

Licenses require 16 hours’ training, cost $50 in addition to training costs, take up to 45 days for approval and require renewal ($30) every five years. “No statement in the Second Amendment is related to individual self-defense,” Haywood said, channeling Hillary Clinton. Instead, Haywood says the constitutional right to own a gun was intended to defend slavery and forced segregation.
