Isn't this already the law? Or is it just in PA?

Huh I am not aware of any such law in PA.

Maybe it's not a law yet but every time you purchase a handgun (not sure about rifles) they give you one of those silly trigger locks. Our local Police Station has cable locks that they give away for free.

I'm pretty sure there is already a "requirement" that a brochure and some type of locking device be provided by *dealers* when they deliver a firearm. Pretty sure it's federal, but haven't been able to track down the actual cite/text yet.

I have purchased handguns new and used from a FFL and only the new ones came with devices, straight from the manufacturer. Just like with the fired casing I think they just do it with every new gun to save confusion in inventory tracking because it is a state thing, not federal. That's been my understanding anyway.

Under Federal law, a gun lock is required to be offered to the buyer. The wording implies that the buyer doesn't have to accept the lock. It just has to be offered. Under PA law, the wording implies that a gun lock must be given to the buyer as if the buyer isn't allowed to say no to the lock. However, most places that I know of aren't going to force a lock down your throat. Keep in mind this is for "firearms" and not long guns.

I don't believe it's required that a PA dealer give you a gun lock. I worked for an FFL and the only thing they gave everybody was a flyer mentioning it. It said something along the lines of if you don't have a gunlock for the gun you just purchased, we will provide one for free. I've had 8 or 10 guns transferred through there and bought from there without being given a lock. They have some behind the counters though.

It is the law. Check the UFA. But if a gun comes with a gun lock the dealer doesn't need to provide the customer with one. If the gun doesn't come with one the dealer must provide one. Basically, the dealer has to provide a gun lock one way or another.

This is not the way it works. You made the assertion, you cite the source. Wink
