The state Reps. said it was just Anti Spam?!?!?! But is it??
They proposed in the law that the owner must re-register with the State Police yearly and the cost would be the cost of the back ground check.
But they never defined the cost of the check. Does it include the salary and benefits for the office staff to handle the check?
Then the only time the gun can be taken out of the home would be to go to a licensed range and a sanctioned shoot, "OR" to surrender it to the Police.

Pardon my ignorance, but does your state have the carry permits? Hope such legislation doesn't trample that license too.

Based on the lack of news coverage and low attendance, this MMM was a flop.

Organizers of today's "Million" Mom March were expecting 5,000 people to show up... a figure that is far less than the impressive number suggested by their ambitious-sounding name or the "official" estimate of 750,000 for their first rally several years ago (a number that is widely considered to be drastically inflated).
According to news reports, despite the "urgency" of the issue at hand (the renewal of the "assault weapons" ban), and plenty of costly advertising, today's march netted a paltry 2,000 participants, less than half the expected number. This represents a substantial increase compared to last year's 100 - 200 participants, though is reminiscent of the embarrassing low turnout of "about 3" at a recent Florida rally.
Though they are completely misguided in their reasoning, and are dead wrong on this issue, the 2,000 who did show up should be applauded for taking an active role in what they believe in, and in the process, exercising the very rights the Second Amendment helps preserve.
That said, it is clear that the strong, active support for renewing the ban is just not there. Sure, there is a massive amount of "passive" support (people responding to polls, for instance), but most these people are not taking a personal interest in the issue to the extent of actually working towards securing a renewal of the ban, and are not very likely to consider it a key issue in determining who they will vote for.
Stay tuned folks... only about 4 months to go before this worthless piece of legislation is purged from the books. In the meantime, keep up the letters and phone calls... it IS making a difference.
