SB 701 needs to be shredded!
Dear Mr. Regan,
I'm writing to let you know that the introduction of SB 701 last week into the Judiciary Committee causes me great concern for the future of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States of America, as a whole.
Please know that I vehemently oppose any such legislation. I'm interested in your thoughts on the matter of this proposed bill.
Restrictions like this are excellent example of how the progressive left's crown jewel- background checks on purchases- does not work. Clearly, if background checks did work, there would be no need for additional restrictions to our God given right to self defense, as guaranteed on the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution.
Section (h) of this proposed bill is very concerning, regarding requirement of a purchase history check for prospective gun buyers. This is tantamount to a gun registration and cannot stand!
I enjoy all the freedoms supported in the Commonwealth today, and very much desire to only create MORE freedoms- by reducing government induced restrictions.
In my opinion, the sponsors of this bill should be removed from office and immediately be brought up on charges for violation of Oath of Office.
Thank your for your continued efforts to preserve our second amendment rights.
E. F. Tyson
Senator Haywood reintroduced SB701 in PA
Last Action: Referred to JUDICIARY, April 6, 2015 [Senate]
An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, in firearms and other dangerous articles, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales; and establishing the Violence Prevention Account within the General Fund.
Subject: Limit purchases of handguns to one per person per 30-day period, with exceptions
In the near future I plan on introducing legislation that would limit the purchase of handguns in the Commonwealth to one per person per 30-day period, with exceptions. This bill is aimed at protecting the 2nd amendment by reducing the gun trafficking that would otherwise put guns in the hands of dangerous individuals. This bill is a re-introduction of SB191 of the 2013-2014 Session.
This bill would limit purchases of handguns in the Commonwealth to one handgun per individual within any 30-day period. The limits on purchases would not apply to: a licensed firearm dealer, a licensed firearm collector, law enforcement, correctional facilities, a licensed private security company, sale of antique firearms, or a person who loses or has stolen a firearm, so long as, there is a police report provided to the seller. The seller of a handgun would be required to complete a handgun purchase history check with the State Police.
The bill would make violation of selling or purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period a third degree misdemeanor; however, if a person has been sentenced for selling or purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period, the violation would be a third degree felony. Additionally, any fines or fees imposed would be deposited into a Violence Prevention Fund in the State Treasury, which would be used for grants to police to prevent gun-related injuries.
Please join in me cosponsoring this legislation designed to help reduce the number of guns in our communities.
Previous cosponsors of this bill include: Farnese, Fontana, Tartaglione, and Williams.
