    As the gun owners in PA know, there was a Bill ( House Bill 760) that was going to not only hamper our rights to own guns but add a $10 tax to each gun per year. This is a copy of the letter sent to me by Representative Sam Rohrer. He is a friend to gun owners and should be supported next election.

    That is the way the law is here in Hawaii already, except for the $10 tax.

    Step one: Drive to Police Station during normal business hours - apply for "Permit to Acquire" (along with serial number of weapon if a handgun and Affidavit of Certified Firearms Education Course completion), fingerprinting ($24) for first time users, criminal background check, along with checking with your doctor and the state hospital to see if you are crazy.

    Step two: Drive to Police Station during normal business hours 14 to 21 days later to pick up permit. Miss the window of opportunity and return to step one. Permit good for ten days and one transaction for handguns, one year multiple transactions for long guns.

    Step three: Purchase weapon

    Step four: Drive to Police Station during normal business hours and submit weapon for "inspection" within five days after purchase.

    You have now passed GO. You may not collect $200.

    Step five: you now own your weapon. You may keep it in your home or office only. You may transport, in locked container in trunk, only between your home or office, and firing range, gun shop, hunting, gun class or show. Concealed carry permit may be issued by Chief of Police (in reality never). Ammunition is considered the same as a firearm subject to the same restrictions.
