Pennsylvania does not require firearm owners to report the loss or theft of a firearm. However, in 2008, Pennsylvania amended its law prohibiting the false reporting of an offense or incident to law enforcement authorities to make the offense graded one step greater if the false report involves the theft or loss of a firearm.1
