Pennsylvania House Democrats have a package of gun control bills poised for a possible final vote when lawmakers return to the Capitol next week. That package includes House Bill 731, which would create new penalties for gun-owners who don’t safely store their long-gun firearms. Long guns include rifles, carbines, shotguns and submachine guns. Current state law mandates that a licensed firearm seller is required to provide a locking device with sales of handguns. However, that requirement doesn’t apply to long guns.
