Pennsylvania: House Consideration of Firearms Preemption Legislation Delayed

Monday, June 11, 2012

Today, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives was scheduled to consider Senate Bill 273, which passed unanimously in the state House Judiciary Committee on June 5.  Unfortunately, due to a crammed legislative agenda, House floor consideration of this bill has been delayed until tomorrow.  Please use this extra time to contact your state Representative in support of SB 273.

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 remained 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” rationing 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.
