Pennsylvania: Legislators Ignore Logic and Lead with Emotion to Introduce Restrictive Measures

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Taking a page from the Obama Administration’s playbook, anti-gun legislators in the Pennsylvania General Assembly have introduced a plethora of legislation that, if passed and enacted, will strip you of your Second Amendment rights.

As time and experience have shown, these restrictive gun control proposals will have no impact on crime, criminal access or the misuse of firearms, and only serve to discriminate against and penalize law-abiding gun owners.  Even anti-gun state Representative James Clay (D-179) recently admitted, “it’s not the people with legitimate guns, it’s the people with the street guns who are destroying the neighborhood.”

Despite this admission, Representative Clay has co-authored a sweeping gun control bill that aims to ban commonly owned semi-automatic rifles.  This measure, along with other proposals, only serves to infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens.  Criminals—by definition—violate laws, especially gun control laws.  Criminals will never comply with or obey a gun ban, or any of the following restrictive legislation that has been introduced this session:

  • Senate Bill 191:  Would implement a gun-rationing scheme and limit law-abiding gun owners to the purchase of one handgun a month.
  • House Bill 239:  Would require all firearms to be registered with the Pennsylvania State Police.  As we know from experiences in California, Canada and Australia, gun registration enables gun confiscation—only from honest citizens—since criminals do not register their guns.
  • House Bill 518:  Would infringe on your inherent right  to self-defense by repealing important self-defense provisions enacted in 2011.

Now is the time to take a stand against these misguided measures!  It is imperative you contact your state legislators today and urge them to stand up for freedom and reject anti-gun legislation that will criminalize the law-abiding and ignore the criminals.
