Attention Pennsylvania Gun Owners: Your State Senator Must Hear From You Immediately!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

The Pennsylvania Senate will consider House Bill 1926 with State Senator Richard Alloway’s (R-33) “Castle Doctrine” amendment very shortly.  IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU CONTACT YOUR STATE SENATOR IMMEDIATELY AND RESPECTFULLY URGE THEIR SUPPORT OF THIS VITAL SELF-DEFENSE REFORM! 

Anti-gun zealots have added language that would prohibit a resident of the Commonwealth from carrying a concealed firearm with a license issued from another state.  For example, a Pennsylvanian with a Utah or Florida permit would be prohibited from carrying a firearm for self-defense while in the Keystone State.  In addition, anti-hunting extremists have filed their own amendment to HB1926 that seeks to outlaw organized Pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania.  Pigeon shooting is an historic and legitimate activity steeped in tradition with many participants throughout the Commonwealth and around the world.  For over one hundred years, shoots have been held in Pennsylvania by law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts, hunters, and sportsmen who would not tolerate an activity that would constitute cruelty to animals. 

Harrisburg needs to stop playing political games with our important self-defense rights and pass the “Castle Doctrine.”     

In contrast, Senator Alloway’s proposed amendment to the bill seeks to protect our rights.  It would permit law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, against an attacker in their homes and any places outside of their home where they have a legal right to be.  If enacted, this law would also protect individuals from civil lawsuits by the attacker or the attacker’s family when force is used.


Please contact your State Senator IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to vote for HB1926 without any anti-gun or anti-hunting amendments.  Contact information can be found by clicking here.  PLEASE MAKE THIS IMPORTANT CALL NOW!
