Please continue to contact your state Representative!

Today, the state House Judiciary Committee was scheduled to vote on two very important firearm bills. Unfortunately, the votes on House Bill 1523 and House Bill 1668 have been delayed until next month.  Please continue to call AND e-mail your state Representative urging him or her to support HB 1523 and HB 1668.  These much-needed pro-gun bills would make critical changes to enhance Pennsylvania’s firearm laws.

House Bill 1523, sponsored by state Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-12), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state.  If enacted, House Bill 1523 would help eliminate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearm preemption law.  Citizens with no criminal intent should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they don`t even know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.

House Bill 1668, sponsored by state Representative Timothy Krieger (R-57), would correct a number of problems that have surfaced over the years with the lawful transportation of firearms.  This proposal would further define the lawful transportation of firearms in motor vehicles by providing a concrete, reliable method not open to interpretation.

Please continue to call AND e-mail your state Representative and urge him or her to support both critical pieces of legislation.
