Stop being ignored–make your voice heard today!

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Senate Bill 273, sponsored by Senator Richard Alloway (R-33), continues to lay dormant in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives despite the fact that next week is scheduled to be the final week of the 2011-2012 legislative session.  As recently reported, SB 273 would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.  With such a short timeline, it is imperative the House and Senate consider SB 273 when they return to Harrisburg on Monday, October 15.

How many local ordinances is it going to take before the state legislature steps in to correct this problem?  With elections just around the corner, it is now time that your lawmakers stop ignoring and start listening to the voices of law-abiding gun owners.

Starting today, NRA members need to contact their state Representative and Senator and urge them to pass this important legislation.

Title 18 Pa.C.S., Section 6120 of Pennsylvania law specifically states that “No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth.”  Yet, nearly fifty local governments have enacted illegal gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law.

State preemption regulating firearms was enacted by the legislature to avoid the possibility of 2,639 separate firearm laws across the Commonwealth.  Without preemption, there would be a myriad of local firearm laws making compliance nearly impossible for law-abiding gun owners.  In fact, gun owners would have difficulty even knowing about laws, much less understanding them.

With only a handful of days left before the Pennsylvania General Assembly adjourns for the year, it is imperative that you contact your state Representative and Senator TODAY and urge them to take action on this important measure.  For contact information or help identifying your state lawmakers please click here.
