Pennsylvania: Senate Passes Firearms Preemption Legislation, Also Votes to Ban Pigeon Shoots

Friday, October 17, 2014

Your help is still needed - Call your state Representative now!

After four years in the making, yesterday the Pennsylvania Senate finally voted to pass firearms preemption legislation in the form of an amendment to House Bill 80.  HB 80 passed by an overwhelming 34-14 vote.  This critical firearms preemption bill is not out of the woods yet, though.  We are down to the final hours of the 2014 legislative session, and your immediate action could make the difference to achieve this long-overdue measure.  The state House is expected to vote on HB 80 on Monday, October 20, and we need you to contact your state Representative today!

To date, nearly fifty municipalities have enacted illegal local gun control ordinances, including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Lancaster and Reading.  Enough is enough.  After four years, it’s time for the Pennsylvania Legislature to finally pass this critical legislation, without playing games with your Second Amendment rights.  It’s time for the House or Representatives to follow the Senate in passing this important reform.

It is important that you contact your state Representative and urge him or her to VOTE FOR the Senate amendment to HB 80, strengthening Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption laws to provide consistency in the firearm and ammunition laws throughout the state.

Unfortunately this week, the Pennsylvania Senate caved to the radical anti-hunting Humane Society of the United States and passed House Bill 1750, previously reported on here, by a 36 to 12 vote.  If HB 1750 becomes law, it would ban organized bird shoots and tower shoots in the Commonwealth.   These types of activities have been held in the Keystone State for more than a century, and participants are law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts, hunters and sportsmen.  Your immediate help is also needed to ensure that the state House of Representatives defeats this misguided ban.  The state House is expected to vote on HB 1750 on Monday, October 20.

Please also urge your state Representative to VOTE AGAINST the Senate amendments to HB 1750 – tell your state Representative to protect the tradition of pigeon shooting in Pennsylvania.
