Pennsylvania: Firearms Preemption Enhancement and Workplace Protection Bill Introduced in the Senate Today

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Senate Bill 1438, introduced in the Pennsylvania Senate today, is much-needed legislation that would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law and also protect your right to store your firearm in your privately-owned and locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent.

If enacted, Senate Bill 1438 would help eliminate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been unduly threatened and 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.

Also, if enacted this bill would protect those employees who on a daily basis have various lawful reasons for carrying a firearm and are often forced to secure that firearm in their vehicle while at work. Employees, who carry a firearm for self-defense on their commute and those who go hunting or target shooting, either before or after work, should not be faced with the possibility of losing their jobs because of a workplace policy that deprives them of their Second Amendment rights.

Anti-gun advocacy groups are already trying to stop this critical legislation, so it is imperative to call, e-mail, fax and write your state Senator TODAY to not only SUPPORT SB 1438, but to become a cosponsor. Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.

Every state Senator in Pennsylvania needs to know that SB 1438 is exactly what law-abiding gun owners want and need passed. That is why it is imperative that you also forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners across Pennsylvania and ask them to also call AND e-mail their state Senator.
