This week Philadelphia legislators filed five discharge resolutions in an attempt to move anti-gun legislation out of the House Judiciary Committee to the House floor for a possible vote.
Among those was legislation to create a one-gun-a-month statute in the City of Philadelphia. This legislation would allow Philadelphia to usurp Pennsylvania's preemption statute by limiting handgun purchases to one a month. Representative Dwight Evans (D-203) who took the lead role, along with 25 co-sponsors, submitted these resolutions in a misguided attempt to address violence in Philadelphia.
Instead of infringing upon Second Amendment rights legislators should be supporting additional funding for Philadelphia's version of Project Exile.
Urge your legislators to support additional funding for Philadelphia's version of Project Exile, which puts anti-crime efforts into practice without dissolving your Second Amendment rights. The general phone number for the General Assembly is (717) 787-2372.
