Pennsylvanian Bill Aims to Promote Gun Safety by Eliminating Sales Tax

Recently a bill was brought up in the Pennsylvanian state legislature that would eliminate the sales tax on the purchase of gun safes and gun locks. The bill was introduced by Representative Fred Keller, R-Union, who believes that this bill will encourage gun safety in the area by allowing people to purchase the safes and locks without having to pay the state’s 6% sales tax. The bill passed the House Finance Committee and it will soon see itself being voted on by the whole Pennsylvanian House of Representatives.

Pennsylvanian law looks to get rid of sales tax on gun safes.

Pennsylvanian law looks to get rid of sales tax on gun safes.

However the bill is facing some resistance in the state’s House of Representatives. One of the main contenders to this bill is Representative Phyllis Mundy, D-Luzerne, she believes that the money is not there for the state to be doing tax exemptions like this. The main factor in her no vote is the budget troubles the state is currently facing. The state is currently facing a $1 billion shortfall in revenue entering the next fiscal year. However Representative Mundy acknowledged the potential of the bill to improve gun safety when she said,  “In the best of all possible worlds, if you have money to spend to meet our obligations, I might be a yes. But today I’m going to be a no.”

Representative Keller’s response to the budget shortfall is “I look at it as an investment in safety and what price tag do you want to put on safety?”

No matter the outcome of this bill, we all must do what we can to promote gun safety and make sure they are educated about the risks of guns. The more people that know about guns the safer they can be. In the end all that we can do is work toward an environment that prides itself in promoting gun safety.

Jewelry Safe in Missouri holds a tear gas canister

Video Clip courtesy KY3.com in Springfield, Missouri

It seems that a jewelry safe that a locksmith was changing the combination on in Monett, Missouri held a surprise for the locksmith. It was booby trapped with a tear gas canister that was installed to go off in case someone tried to drill the safe open. In the early 1900′s these canisters were added to safes to help deter break-in.

Amsec TL-30x6 jewelry safe

The Amsec TL-30×6 Jewelry safe is for home or commercial use.

When someone drilled into the safe and hit the canister and broke it, it released tear gas which caused a burning sensation, watery eyes, difficulty breathing, and chest pain. It is much more potent then today’s tear gas is.

Jewelry safe is dis-armed by Fire Department

The Springfield fire department came out and took the device to the dump where they detonated the CS gas and it was vaporized. It caused no problems and was harmless the way they released it.

If you have an antique safe, and it has an added to the back of the door, call an expert to have them remove it. You can read the whole story at the ky3.com website.

Controversial Law Forces Gun Owners to Keep Their Guns in a Gun Safe

Gun Safe

New Australian law requires guns to be locked in a gun safe.

Over these past few months gun rights have been a hot bed of conversation in the United States. However it seems as if it is being brought up much more often internationally especially with the institution of Operation Gun Safe in Busselton, Australia. With the countless debates between anti gun control and pro gun control sides here in the United States, it is not surprising to see this topic gain world recognition and this law in Australia will surely prove to be a big part of the ongoing debate about gun rights.

Operation Gun Safe will consist of police going to the houses of all registered gun owners and making sure that they are complying with this new law. The law states that firearms must be kept in a gun safe that meet the law’s requirements. The main goal behind this operation is to minimize the theft of firearms and make sure that they are kept in a gun safe. The other goals would be to check that the guns would be kept in a good working condition and that all stolen or lost weapons are reported to the police.

The Senior Sergeant of the Busselton Police Department Steve Principe an advocate for the law said ” We want to educate people to ensure that firearms are kept in a safe and secure environment.”

Principe believes that this law will truly help keep communities safe. He illustrates this belief when he stated that ” We don’t want to punish people; we just want to ensure that the safety of the community is paramount.”

After having 11  firearms stolen in Busselton last year, advocates of the law are hoping that the integration of this law will drastically cut that down. They believe that this law, requiring guns to be locked in a gun safe and ensuring that all guns are accounted for will increase the safety of the whole community.

Ultimately we do not know how this law will affect gun thefts in the area until it comes to a conclusion this upcoming October, however we do know that this law can only help increase the number of guns being locked up in a gun safe and ultimately the safety of the community. Stay tuned for more information regarding Operation Gun Safe and it’s relative successes or failures.

The E-500 will cover up to 500 cubic feet. Other than that there is no difference. Through the little window on the front of both units you will see the little blue beads that make these units so reliable. When wet the little beads will turn pink – When they do you take the unit out of the safe, and plug it into a standard house socket overnight. (They both have a flip out plug.) In the morning the little beads have lost all the moisture that was accumulated in them and they are back to being blue. Put it back in the safe and it is ready to suck out the moisture again.
