Upcoming Anti-Gun Issues Affecting Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania –-(AmmoLand.com)- Now that the Pennsylvania elections are over it seems that every anti-gun group in this state and even some throughout the nation have targeted Pennsylvania as a battleground state.
Let's take a look at a portion of the list of anti-gun issues that have surfaced recently.
Recent Anti-gun issues in Pennsylvania:
- 17 communities are committing acts of civil disobedience and enacting their own firearms laws.
- The Pennsylvania State police Commissioner issues letter of support for these communities.
- The Pennsylvania State police Commissioner violates Pennsylvania law by reconfiguring how certain firearms are sold.
- Rep. Caltagirone (chairman of the House Judiciary committee) and Sen. Greenleaf (chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee) hold up both respective Castle doctrine bills in their committee (House Bill 40-Senate Bill 842).
The list goes on and on and on and at the heart of this are the machinations of Cease-Fire PA, Mothers Against Guns, Mayors against Illegal Guns, and a host of smaller, insignificant anti-gun groups that like a bad record seems to be fixated on the fake cause of stopping illegal guns by putting more burden and more restrictions on law-abiding citizens.
As you'll see there are a great many gun issues that cry out for common sense and the attention of everyone of us. Pay particular attention to very quiet attempts to classify the materials involved in manufacturing ammunition as hazardous materials.
The recent murder of a police officer in the Penn Hills community who was out on parole, had an electronic monitoring bracelet on, and was never prosecuted for a myriad of gun crimes has heightened the debate over gun control laws and their effectiveness. Of course the anti-gun groups trotted out the same old message that it's time for reasonable gun laws, ignoring the fact that we have 126 pages of reasonable Pennsylvania gun laws that didn't stop this miscreant from murdering a police officer, all the while protesting that they support a citizen's right to bear arms.
Note that the West Mifflin Borough, PA Council is once again targeting gun owners by reconsidering, as some sort of ironic Christmas present, the concept of mandatory reporting of lost or stolen firearms. We are asking all gun owners in this area to consider attending this meeting so that you can express your dissatisfaction with this moronic concept. As an interesting aside when talking with the solicitors of these communities and they are asked what they will do if a firearm turns up in a crime in their community that was not reported stolen from different community, you get this pregnant pause or a look on their face like DUH “I never thought of that”. Clem Kadiddlehopper of Red Skelton comes to mind! This goes back to the patchwork quilt concept and why we have a preemption law in this state to preclude local communities from enacting their own laws.
