PA Gun Owners - Listen Up

The lower house of the newly blue State of Pennsylvania is considering imposing a sweeping rewrite of PA gun laws. The PA House Judiciary Committee is coming out with this gem:
House Bill 760 calls for every gun in the state (with the exception of antiques) to be registered with the state police, and that registration must be renewed annually. The cost would be $10 per gun, per year. The bill also requires fingerprinting and a background check of each gun owner. A new photograph must be submitted each year and the registration card for each gun would have to be carried with the firearm at all times.

This is nothing but a revenue grabbing scheme, another way to tax activities that the liberals find offensive before finally outlawing them completely.

There are PA legislators who are fighting this. They are Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, Rep. John Evans and Sen. John Pippy who are introducing legislation to fight this oppressive bill. In addition, there is a petition here for you to sign if you are against any more restrictive gun laws.

On Tuesday, April 24, 2007, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM in Harrisburg, PA (on the Capitol Bldg. Steps) there will be a pro-gun press conference.

If you are a PA gun owner, you really, really need to be there.

Let these men know that you support their efforts.
