Omnibus Pro-Gun Bill Up for Possible Vote in the Keystone State!

Friday, June 6, 2008

House Bill 1845, sponsored by State Representative John Sabatina (D-174), is scheduled for a possible vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee next week.

This omnibus legislation contains three NRA-supported provisions, which further protect the rights of Pennsylvania’s gun-owners. One measure would eliminate the prohibition on Right-to-Carry permit holders carrying a concealed firearm for self-defense in state parks.  Another measure would prohibit any government agency from confiscating or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms during a state of emergency, such as occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. A final provision would allow for the issue of emergency concealed carry permits for individuals in immediate danger.

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support this crucial piece of legislation.
