Pennsylvania Gun Registration? This has to be f!ought hard

A friend forwarded this to me this morning and I can barely believe it! What the heck are these people thinking! Hunters, Gun Owners, non-Gun Owners must fight this bill tooth and nail and stand up for our rights under the second amendment! I do not want the government to ever have the right to confiscate my guns, They should never even know how many guns I choose to own, or what kinds and I absolutely do not want a registry out there with my name on it for criminals to see and know that I have x number of guns in my house for the taking! I love our country, but I do not trust them to watch over my guns and protect my right to privacy! FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT this legislation with everything you have!

Pennsylvania Gun Registration Legislation Introduced!

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today! The Gun Registration Act of 2007, House Bill No. 760 , sponsored by State Representatives Angel Cruz (D-180), Rosita Youngblood (D-198), Cherelle Parker (D-200), Jake Wheatley (D-19), Lisa Bennington (D-21), and Lawrence Curry (D-154) has been introduced in Harrisburg. This misguided proposal would require every gun in Pennsylvania to be registered with the state, and each firearm would have to be re-registered annually. The registration would cost law-abiding gun owners $10 per gun each year. Of course, criminals won’t pay anything BECAUSE CRIMINALS DON'T REGISTER GUNS! In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Haynes v. U.S. (309 U.S. 85 (1968)) that since felons are prohibited from owning firearms, compelling them to register them would violate their 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination. However, if a law-abiding gun owner fails to register it, he or she will be jailed and lose his or her rights FOREVER. The measure would require each gun owner annually submit to fingerprinting, have a background check, and to include passport-style photos for the registration cards. The registration card for each gun would then have to be carried with that gun at all times. To make matters worse, if the state should reject your application for any reason, YOUR GUNS WILL BE CONFISCATED! Please call your State Representative today at (717) 787-2372 and your State Senator at (717) 787-5920 and ask them to oppose HB760! Enough is enough!
