Pennsylvania Gun Owners Rights In Jeopardy!

Friday, September 22, 2006

 

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!

 

 

This month, all gun owners in Pennsylvania need to stand-up and be heard.  Anti-gun legislators, led by Representative Dwight Evans (D-Philadelphia), are pushing new gun control measures in Harrisburg.  Pointing to data from a recent Pennsylvania Democratic Party funded poll that indicates suburban residents are concerned about gun violence, Evans stated that "legislators should move beyond boundary lines and party labels to take action on gun control."  

 

Gun-control legislation has been dead on arrival in Harrisburg for more than a decade because the balance of the General Assembly supports the rights of gun owners.  However, if Representative Evans and his supporters are successful this could change overnight. 

 

However with your help, we can again stop this from happening!

 

Pennsylvania gun owners have two important dates to remember:

 

September 25th - Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Stewart Greenleaf (R-12) schedules final hearing in Harrisburg - On Monday, September 25, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a final hearing to receive testimony relating to urban violence.   The hearing will be held 10:00 A.M. in Room 8E-B of the East Wing.

 

Over the past several months, the committee has heard testimony from public officials and anti-gun zealots insisting on new gun control legislation to combat urban crime.  This will be the final opportunity for NRA members to voice their concerns regarding the lack of enforcement and prosecution of federal and state firearm laws which has fueled violent crime over the past year.  If your planning on testifying or need additional information, contact Gregg Warner of Sen. Greenleaf's office, (717) 787-6599 or gwarner@pasen.gov

 

September 26th - Committee of the Whole Meeting

On Tuesday, September 26, the House of Representatives will convene as a "Committee of the Whole" to focus on crime and violence in Pennsylvania. The Committee of the Whole is a rarely used legislative mechanism designed to allow for a more informal, free-flowing public debate of a particularly critical issue facing the Commonwealth.

Topics expected to be addressed include: "One-Gun-a-Month" legislation, elimination of statewide preemption, semi-automatic firearm bans as well as other anti-gun legislation which infringe on your rights as law-abiding gun owners.

The time is NOW

NRA members across Pennsylvania must call or write their State Legislators and send the message that stiff punishment of criminals who commit crimes with guns is the key to stopping crimes committed with firearms.  

You can contact your State Representative at (7
17) 787-2016 and State Senator at (717) 787-5920.

PLEASE CONTACT YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE TODAY AND ASK THEM TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!
