Pennsylvania: Important Preemption Bill Expected to Go to Senate Floor Today-Contact your State Senator in Support!

Today, Senate Bill 1330, legislation that would make critical changes to enhance Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law, is expected to go to the Senate floor for second consideration.  It is vital that you contact your state Senator today and ask them to please support SB 1330 with Senator John Eichelberger’s amendment.   Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state Senator!


SB 1330, sponsored by state Senator Rich Alloway (R-33), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state.  Earlier this year, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck down ACT 192 – Firearm Preemption Legislation - for violation of the “single subject” rule for legislative process.  SB 1330, if again enacted into law, would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.

Gun owners continue to be unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearm preemption law.  Citizens with no criminal intent should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they don`t even know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.

Once again, please click the “TAKE ACTION” button to e-mail your state Senator today and ask them to support SB 1330 with Senator Eichelberger’s amendment!
