Pennsylvania: Attorney General-Elect Kathleen Kane Does Not Support Your Right-to-Carry

Monday, December 3, 2012

While it should come as no surprise, Pennsylvania Attorney General-Elect Kathleen Kane is wasting no time in demonstrating her hostility towards your Second Amendment rights even before she takes office next month.

Kathleen Kane joined nine sitting attorneys general, including those from California, Massachusetts and New York, in signing her name to a letter urging the U.S. Senate leadership to oppose S. 2188, "The National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act" and S. 2213, "The Respecting States’ Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act."  To read the full letter, please click here.

S. 2188 and S. 2213 would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed firearm permit to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms for lawful purposes.  A state's laws governing where concealed handguns may be carried would apply within its borders.

In contrast, the attorneys general of 22 states wrote a letter of support earlier this year recognizing the House passage of H.R. 822, the companion legislation to S. 2188.  H.R. 822 passed in the U.S. House of Representatives last year by a strong bipartisan 272 to 154 vote.  The 22 attorneys general stated, in part, “While some have suggested this legislation would endanger public safety, our experience suggests the opposite.  Individuals with concealed carry permits from our states have proven to be more law-abiding than non-licensees, and in many instances have been able to defend themselves and others effectively from criminal attack.  Many of our states also have laws recognizing out-of-state permits, and people carrying concealed handguns under those laws have done so without any unusual problems."

Please contact Attorney General-Elect Kathleen Kane TODAY and respectfully ask that she reverse her position on this important issue.  Her contact information is provided here.
