Kathleen Kane

Pennsylvania politicians need to rein in AG, Kathleen Kane, and force her to respect the rights of Pennsylvanians and folks who would like to visit that state.

Buckeye, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Our friends in Pennsylvania need our help.

Their Attorney General has taken it upon herself to ignore the statutory limits on her power and modify - and even cancel - longstanding concealed carry reciprocity agreements with other states.

Recently she has made changes to the reciprocity agreements with Virginia, Florida, and Arizona, and she has canceled reciprocity agreements with Idaho and Utah.

I suspect that Mike Bloomberg or the Legal Center Against Violence - or whatever those rights-hating San Francisco lawyers are calling themselves this week - have been whispering in the AG’s ear and convinced her that she can get away with this BS. If that’s the case, be on the lookout for similar actions in other states.

Right now, we need to put pressure on Pennsylvania politicians to rein in the AG and force her to respect the rights of Pennsylvanians and folks who would like to visit that state.

If you are a PA resident, please contact your state legislators demanding that they get their Attorney General under control.

Whether you’re a PA resident or not, please let the Governor know that you’re not happy about the situation. Not only does this mean that those of us wishing to visit PA are more likely to have problems carrying our personal defense arms, but Pennsylvanians wishing to visit other states are now at greater risk.

Tourism is a major industry in Pennsylvania and that got a boost a few years ago when the National Park Service ban on lawful carry on NPS lands was lifted – opening up battlefield parks like Gettysburg to those of us who avoid going where we can’t go armed. That is now being jeopardized by the extra-statutory actions of this rogue AG.

If you’ve ever considered visiting Pennsylvania, let the Governor know that those plans are on hold until such time as the PA AG stops threatening the rights of responsible, licensed, law-abiding visitors.

The Governor’s email address is: Governor@PA.gov

Here is the note I’ve sent him. Please use it as a guide to send him a note of your own to let him know that his AG is costing his state business. You don’t have to say a lot, just let him know you’re not happy and you’re going to avoid

Dear Governor Corbett:

I’m very disappointed to learn that your Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, has chosen to exceed her statutory authority and modify or delete reciprocity agreements concerning the discreet carry of personal defense firearms. My home state of Arizona and the state of Utah, where I have maintained a non-resident permit for a number of years, have been targeted.
While it is possible that I personally could legally carry my firearm in Pennsylvania – as I have been lawfully and responsibly doing for over three decades all over this country, I will not lend my support and tourist dollars to a state that is actively trying to infringe on my, and my fellow citizens’ rights.
I guess I’ll take my grandson to visit the Manassas and Fredericksburg, Virginia battlefields instead of Gettysburg this summer. I’m also letting my friends know about this situation and encouraging them to suspend any planned visits to PA and to avoid doing business with PA-based businesses until this situation is resolved.
I hope you and the legislature will act quickly to bring this rogue politician into compliance with PA statutes and demonstrate that Pennsylvania still respects individual rights.
Please let me know when your state is again open for business and tourism.

Sincerely,

Jeff Knox
Buckeye, Arizona

Please send a quick note to Governor Corbett right now, then forward this Alert to your rights-supporting friends.

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!

E-mail Pennsylvania Governor Corbett at:

“Obey the Law, Respect Reciprocity Agreements”

Dear Governor Corbett:

I’m very disappointed to learn that Attorney General Kathleen Kane has chosen to exceed her statutory authority and modify or delete reciprocity agreements concerning the discreet carry of personal defense firearms. I understand that several states have been targeted, and this is very disconcerting.

While it is possible that I personally could legally carry my firearm in Pennsylvania (so far), I will not lend my support and tourist dollars to a state that is actively trying to infringe on my, and my fellow citizens’ rights. I’m also letting my friends know about this situation and encouraging them to suspend any planned visits to PA and to avoid doing business with PA-based businesses until this situation is resolved.

I hope you and the legislature will act quickly to bring Attorney General Kane into compliance with Pennsylvania statutes and demonstrate that your state still respects individual rights.

Please let me know when your state is again open for business and tourism. I will continue to monitor this situation via the Firearms Coalition and Grass Roots North Carolina.

Sincerely,

Jeff Knox takes a look at the importance of primaries in the latest Knox Report, now available at www.FirearmsCoalition.org.

      Never sell guns or ammo to police or govt agents. Especially stop selling guns/ammo to D.C. police and the ATF.

      This will end gun control quickly.

      Just who the he’ll does this devilcrat think she is??!! By ignoring the limits to her power she is showing her true colors. And they are red,red,red. She is following the example of the fascist in Washington her devilcrat party champions. A black hitleresque wannabe. A power hungry take everything I can as long as I can and to hell with the people and their constitution type of anti American devilish parasite of freedom! my neighbor is from penn. And has invited me to go along with him on a turkey hunt later this year. In light of this change of allegiance by Pennsylvania. Politicians. (This would not be possible without the blessing of the states administration) I will be decking his invitation and refusing to spend one cent in penn. Also I was planning a trip to see my son in grad school that would have required traveling through part of penn. I have now changed my route to avoid this fascist leaning state. I’ll take a slightly longer route rather than visit such a traitor it’s state.!!!.
