Please Contact your state Representative TODAY!
Today, the state House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 1523 with a NRA-backed amendment by a 19 to 4 vote. HB 1523 will now go to the full House for second consideration as early as this Wednesday. Anti-gun amendments could still be filed to this bill while it is on second consideration, so it is imperative to call your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 1523 and OPPOSE any House floor amendments to it. This much-needed pro-gun bill would make critical changes to enhance Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law.
House Bill 1523, sponsored by state Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-12), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms 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.
Please continue to call AND e-mail your state Representative and urge him or her to support HB 1523 as amended by the state House Judiciary Committee.
