Despite the fact that nearly fifty local governments have enacted illegal gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law, the Pennsylvania Legislature failed to act on important reform legislation that would have addressed this problem.
Senate Bill 273, sponsored by state Senator Richard Alloway (R-33), would have strengthened Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.
While this legislative session comes to a disappointing close, enacting firearms preemption legislation in Pennsylvania remains a top priority for the 2013-14 legislative session.
With less than three weeks until Election Day, it is important you ask state candidates what they will do—if elected—to help ensure the passage of firearms preemption legislation next session.
