Pennsylvania: National Anti-Gun Group Sets its Sights Against Firearms Preemption Enhancement Bill

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Contact your state Representative TODAY to SUPPORT HB 1523

 

Billionaire anti-gun activist and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" (MAIG) are once again moving into Pennsylvania. They are now working to try to stop the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from passing House Bill 1523, common sense firearms legislation that will keep law-abiding gun owners from becoming criminals. HB 1523 could be heard on its second consideration in the state House at any time when the legislature returns this coming week, and it needs your active and immediate support.

HB 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 threatened and unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearms 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.

HB 1523 has already been delayed and this postponement of action has given anti-gun advocacy groups more time to try to rally opposition, like getting MAIG involved. We cannot let anti-gun rhetoric and a New York City Mayor undermine the Second Amendment in Pennsylvania.

As previously reported, anti-gun state Representatives have filed at least thirteen anti-gun amendments to HB 1523. These amendments range from a “ballistic imaging” mandate to gutting the current “state preemption” statute. Call AND e-mail your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 1523 without amendment. We cannot let this critical pro-gun legislation get hijacked by out-of-staters who just believe that all gun owners are criminals.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners in Pennsylvania and ask them to also call AND e-mail their state Representative. This much-needed pro-gun bill would make major changes to enhance Pennsylvania’s current firearms preemption law and it needs everyone’s help now.
