DA SHAW and SHERIFF CHURNER OPPOSES GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION

Sheriff Mike Churner and DA Bill Shaw

CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced today his opposition to H.B. 768, the “Firearm Registration Act.”

Clearfield County Sheriff Mike Churner joined Shaw in voicing opposition to this proposed legislation.

Shaw reported that he has contacted local State Representatives requesting they oppose passage of H.B. 768. Shaw explained his belief that H.B. 768 violates the Second Amendment of both the State and Federal Constitution. Shaw said passage of this terrible legislation would only cause costly and unnecessary litigation.

Shaw explained that under proposed H.B. 768, gun owners would be required to register their firearms with the State Police and undergo a background check. H.B. 768 also seeks to impose a $10.00 annual registration fee for each firearm owned.

Churner explained that a person who owns ten firearms would be required to pay $100.00 every year to register those firearms with the State Police. Churner said he knows many citizens who own dozens of firearms and said, “these folks could be required to pay thousands in registration fees on a yearly basis.”

Both Shaw and Churner encourage citizens who oppose H.B. 768 to contact their local State Representatives and voice their opposition to this unconstitutional legislation.
