Pennsylvania: Bill to Strengthen Firearms Preemption Law Scheduled for House Consideration on Monday

Friday, June 8, 2012

Senate Bill 273, originally introduced as “Castle Doctrine” legislation has been amended to include language to strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law. This Monday, June 11, the state House of Representatives will consider SB 273 which passed unanimously in the state House Judiciary Committee on June 5. 

As amended, SB 273 would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state.  Furthermore, it helps mitigate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been unduly burdened by local gun control 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 do not know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another. 

Big city mayors are on the offensive in trying to kill this much-needed legislation.  Moreover, 23 amendments have been filed, most of which are anti-gun amendments designed to kill SB 273.  Most outrageous of all amendments include a complete ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms, a “ballistic imaging” mandate and a “one-handgun-a-month” scheme.

Please call AND e-mail your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support SB 273 WITHOUT any additional amendments!  For contact information or help identifying your state Representative, please click here.
