On Tuesday, January 24, the state House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on two very important firearm bills.

House Bill 1523, sponsored by state Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-12), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state.  If enacted, House Bill 1523 would help eliminate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearm preemption law.  Citizens with no criminal intent should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they don`t even know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.

House Bill 1668, sponsored by state Representative Timothy Krieger (R-57), would correct a number of problems that have surfaced over the years with the lawful transportation of firearms.  The proposal would further define the lawful transportation of firearms in motor vehicles by providing a concrete, reliable method not open to interpretation.

Please call AND e-mail your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support both critical pieces of legislation.
