Bills Proposed To Strike Unnecessary Pennsylvania Instant Check System

Share

 

From The Lehigh Valley Project 9/12 Tea Party–Second Amendment Committee

Two important bills, House Bill 763 and Senate Bill 224, were recently introduced in the Pennsylvania General Assembly, according to a report on www.nraila.org. Sponsored by state Representative Jason Ortitay (R-46) and state Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46), these bills would eliminate the current Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) as well as the current handgun record of sale, and replace them with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which is administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Under the NICS system, licensed dealers contact the FBI, via a toll-free telephone number, to run a check of computerized criminal history and mental health records at the point of sale for firearm purchases. Upon confirmation that the purchaser has no prohibiting criminal or mental health record, the purchaser may take possession of the firearm.

Since its inception in 1998, PICS has cost Pennsylvania tax payers nearly $120 million to basically conduct duplicate background checks on gun purchasers in the Keystone State. By replacing the system with NICS, taxpayers in Pennsylvania would be relieved of a burdensome, duplicative process and would be able to take advantage of the more efficient federal system. Currently, 30 states, including the District of Columbia, solely utilize the NICS system for all firearm background checks.
