    I said this on another thread:

    If my police superintendent can do a radio interview after an arrest and I hear him say "the guy had 8 handguns registered to him", then it's a fucking registry.

    It sounds similar to what the Feds do with 4473s.

    We need to get our legislative advocacy on point so we can pass more gun-friendly legislation in PA.

    If they use it like a registry to determine ownership (though incomplete), then it is a de facto registry which is exactly what the destruction requirement was meant to prevent!

    If the state form is not a registry and not used for anything, why fill it out and send it in?
