Today, the House Judiciary Committee was scheduled to consider the following two pro-gun bills:
House Bill 921, sponsored by state Representative Tim Krieger (R-57), would transfer background checks for firearm purchases from the Pennsylvania instant check system to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Unfortunately, HB 921 was removed from the committee voting schedule to allow additional time to further consider this measure.
House Bill 2011, sponsored by state Representative Mark Keller (R-86), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state. HB 2011 was reported in committee by a 20 to 5 vote.
House Bill 2011 is expected to be voted on by the full state House of Representatives after they return from recess on March 31. Please contact your state Representative and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 2011. Contact information for your state Representative can be found here.
