Next week, members of the Pennsylvania Legislature will return to Harrisburg and are expected to vote on critical preemption legislation. With only six days left in the 2016 legislative session, it is imperative that you contact your state legislators and urge them to support both Senate Bill 1330 and House Bill 2258. It is important that one of these bills makes it to the Governor's desk. Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact your state legislators!
Gun owners across the Keystone state have waited long enough for this much-needed reform as they 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.
Earlier this year, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck down ACT 192 – Firearm Preemption Legislation - for violation of the “single subject” rule for legislative process. Both SB 1330 and HB 2258, if again enacted into law, would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.
