Description

WNEP-TV investigates how the Pennsylvania State Police allegedly violates the law by "compiling lists of handgun owners and the make, model and serial number of the firearm." The report sheds light on a regulation that "makes it clear that no state agency may compile "any" lists of gun owners." The story cites state police officials explaining the existence of the list as "simply a record of sales database" and "a crime solver for police."The investigation finds that "any local police officer, even the FBI can get the information" that the state police computer system holds.
