    Agreed, very dangerous policy that smacks of KGB supression tactics.

    Default Re: List of all anti-gun regulations coming up?

    I got this from NRA-ILA this morning:

    Senate Bill 17, sponsored by Senator Wayne Fontana (D-42), would ban most modern semi-automatic rifles, almost all semi-automatic handguns, and ammunition magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition. Current owners of the firearms would be required to obtain a “certificate of possession” every four years to retain them, which could be denied arbitrarily based on “character and reputation.”

    Senate Bill 18, sponsored by Senator Fontana, would allow for Second Amendment rights to be revoked without due process of law in ex parte hearings where the respondent is not present to challenge the accuser and defend against allegations made against them. It would also provide immunity to the applicant, even if they make purposeful omissions or misstatements in the petition for restraining orders.

    Senate Bill 501, sponsored by Senator Thomas Killon (R-9), and House Bill 2060 sponsored by Representative Marguerite Quinn (R-143), would require those who are convicted of domestic violence offenses or are respondents of domestic violence restraining orders turn over their firearms to law enforcement or dealers. It would repeal the provision in current law allowing them to turn them over to third parties.

    House Bill 832, sponsored by Representative Madeleine Dean (D-153), would criminalize the failure to report a firearm stolen within 72 hours. Individuals should not be further victimized after experiencing a burglary or other loss.

    House Bill 1233, sponsored by Representative Thomas Murt (R-152), would designate more individuals as “qualified professionals” in order to allow them to have others committed for mental health reasons under Section 302 without any due process.

    House Bill 1400, sponsored by Representative James Santora (R-163), and House Bill 2249, sponsored by Representative Thomas Murt (R-152), would criminalize the private transfer of firearms.

    House Bill 1872, sponsored by Representative Madeleine Dean (D-153), includes poorly written, vague language that could criminalize modifications commonly made to firearms by law-abiding citizens in order to make their firearms more user friendly and suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, and even adapting to physical disability. Many of these modifications simply make it easier to deliver accurate and controlled shots with less physical discomfort for the shooter without fundamentally changing the mechanics of how a firearm operates.

    House Bill 2097, sponsored by Representative Jason Dawkins (D-179), would violate the right to due process by removing Second Amendment rights from those arrested for or charged with domestic violence offenses but not convicted.

    House Bill 2109, sponsored by Representative Stephen McCarter (D-154), seeks to create “firearm restraining orders” which would allow Second Amendment rights to be stripped in ex parte hearings where the respondent is not present to challenge the accuser and defend against allegations made against them.

    House Bill 2216, sponsored by Representative Warren Kampf (R-157), also includes poorly written, vague language that could criminalize modifications commonly made to firearms by law-abiding citizens in order to make their firearms more user friendly and suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, and even adapting to physical disability. In addition, it would also ban ammunition magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition.

    House Bill 2251, sponsored by Representative Thomas Murt (R-152), would require a background check for the purchase of ammunition, prohibit mail ordering ammunition, and prohibit the interstate purchase of ammunition without it going through a licensed firearm dealer with a background check.

    House Bill 2252, sponsored by Representative Thomas Murt (R-152), is redundant legislation that would codify existing federal law into Pennsylvania law.

    Should be able to challenge some of the bills. They're blatantly unconstitutional when it comes to due process and the 4th amendment. With the 2nd confirmed as an individual right and incorporated it should be able to be fought.

    We already have blatantly unconstitutional (read illegal) gun licensing and restrictions flying in the face of the 2nd Amendment. The really fucked-up thing is, attorneys are afraid to fight certain of these illegal situations for fear of making things worse.

    any updates on these? any chance of them even going through? we need to keep the pressure on. keep rallying through out the year. keep flooding them with letter, physical letters. send one(to each senator and congressman) a week, every week until they get the message. vote for pro gun candidates during elections becuase that is the only issue that matters.

    One of the problems is: these politicians keep writing "proposed" bills and laws, and we have to keep spending time, money & energy to swat at these flies. All they have to do is write some silly shit, place it in the "process" and then we have the hard part of battling it. It's a game that they use to screw with us. The actual "source" of the problem are certain people who write this junk and put it into the system. If they were not present, there would be no buzzing BS bills to distract us.

    Maybe we should start legal action to remove these people from Harrisburg so they no longer write up this garbage. Have them thrown out for violating their oath to office, or something, anything. We should throw legal crap at them, so they have to fight to keep their office. Then they wouldn't have time to write this anti-gun garbage.
