Pennsylvania: Your Urgent Action Needed to Pass Important Firearms Preemption Legislation!

Next week is the final week of the 2016 legislative session for the Pennsylvania General Assembly.  With time winding down, it’s time for the legislature to pass Senate Bill 1330, important firearms preemption legislation.  While the Senate successfully passed SB 1330 this week, the House of Representatives failed to take action on it. With only three days of session left, it is critical that you continue to contact your state legislators in support of SB 1330!  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.  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.
