They've also screwed it up by not naming it the "Child, elderly, and kittie safety act of 2007"

Wouldn't it violate Federal Law?

Federal Law 18 U.S.C. 926 (2) (a)) being: No such rule or regulation prescribed after the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners Protection Act may require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or disposition be established. Nothing in this section expands or restricts the Secretary's authority to inquire into the disposition of any firearm in the course of a criminal investigation.

Mike Stollenwork, of VCDL and opencarry.org, sued Pa. already over the SSN issue.

I wonder if he knows about this?

This is something a large group of gun owners, rifles in hand, march to the state capital about....

At that point the legislature passes the point where people peacefully try to resolve the conflict of ideas through peacefully dialog.

From Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act

The Firearm Owners' Protection Act (FOPA), Pub. L. No. 99-308, 100 Stat. 449 (May 19, 1986), codified at 18 U.S.C. § 921 et seq., is a United States federal law that revised many statutes in the Gun Control Act of 1968.

The act also forbade the U.S. Government or any agency of it from keeping a registry directly linking non-National Firearms Act firearms (regular firearms - not the real fun stuff) to their owners

No 14th. Amendment issues? - No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States...

Maybe not but they can't spend any Federal money doing it.

It's just grey money, minor detail. Shift here, shift there, do whatever you want. Not your money! They'll find a way to make someone pay for whatever they do, you can bank on that.
