    Default Sheriff Martin Monroe county

    I attended a seminar that Sheriff Martin from Monroe county was having and he told everyone they had to register a firearm if it was bought in from another state. I am certain this information is not correct. Can someone point me in the right direction of the statue so I can send it to him.

    Ahh yeah Im pretty sure thats not the case and if it was absolutely no one does it.

    Owning Firearms

    Do I have to register my firearms in Pennsylvania?
    No, in fact in Pennsylvania it is actually illegal for any government or police agency to keep a registry of firearms per 18 Pa.C.S. § 6111.4 (Registration of firearms). If you legally possess bring your firearms into the Pennsylvania or come into possession of the firearms legally, no further action is required.

    It should be noted however that all transfers of handguns in Pennsylvania are required to go through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) and as such the Pennsylvania State Police keep a "Sales Database" of all handguns purchased within the Commonwealth. While almost any casual observer can see that this database clearly violates the spirit of 18 Pa.C.S. § 6111.4 (Registration of firearms), in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed with the Pennsylvania State Police that because the database is not a complete record of all handgun ownership (as people bringing handguns into the state do not have to register them), it does not.

    I read the statue and the answer is a big NO.
    6111.4. Registration of firearms.
    Notwithstanding any section of this chapter to the contrary, nothing in this chapter shall be construed to allow any government or law enforcement agency or any agent thereof to create, maintain or operate any registry of firearm ownership within this Commonwealth. For the purposes of this section only, the term "firearm" shall include any weapon that is designed to or may readily be converted to expel any projectile by the action of an explosive or the frame or receiver of any such weapon.
    (June 13, 1995, 1st Sp.Sess., P.L.1024, No.17, eff. 120 days)

    1995 Amendment. Act 17, 1st Sp.Sess., added section 6111.4.
    Cross References. Section 6111.4 is referred to in section 6111 of this title.

    I'd have thrown a shit fit after hearing his retarded interpretations of the law.
