During his 2020 Budget Address, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf appeared to have bought-in to the anti-gun narrative that law-abiding gun owners are the problem, not criminals. Coming on the heels of an anti-freedom lobby day by Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action, the Governor’s proposed gun control agenda includes:
- Extreme gun confiscation measures often referred to as “red flag” laws that authorize the seizure of firearms without due process.
- Criminalizing private transfers of firearms.
- Imposing punishments on victims that have had their firearms stolen.
- Creating firearm storage laws that remove a homeowner’s ability to quickly access their own firearm for self-defense.
This agenda is straight from former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun largesse, driven by his front-groups Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action.
These bills have one thing in common; they don’t go after criminals, they target law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment.
Following Governor Wolf’s speech, it is more important than ever that Pennsylvania’s gun owners, hunters and sportsmen stay-vigilant and take action during the 2020 Legislative Session. Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA’s Alerts for information and updates.
