Pennsylvania: Please Attend Senate Judiciary Hearings on Numerous Gun Control Proposals

Next week, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on “Behavioral Health, Second Amendment Rights, and other Gun Related Issues.”  Your NRA-ILA is planning to attend and represent NRA members during these open-ended hearings.  Members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to attend as well in opposition. Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and strongly urge them to oppose the various gun control proposals before the committee.


  The meeting will be held at the following location:

Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing
Behavioral Health, Second Amendment Rights,
and Other Gun Related Issues
Tuesday, Sept. 24 – Wednesday Sept. 25
Sept. 24: 9:00am to 12:00pm
Sept. 25: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Hearing Room 1, North Office Building

The committee is expected to consider proposals on multiple extreme anti-gun measures, including:

  • Prohibitions on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and their accessories
  • Banning standard capacity magazines
  • Legislation empowering the government to confiscate firearms without due process
  • Criminalizing the private transfer of firearms
  • Mandatory locked storage of firearms

Not only have these measures been proven to be unenforceable, they do absolutely nothing to prevent crime, and seek to place the burden on law-abiding gun owners.

Again, it is important that you please attend these hearings and show your strong opposition to these proposed measures and any attempt to further restrict the Second Amendment rights of Pennsylvanians.
