Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- The anti-gun extremists are pulling out the stops trying to stop pro-firearm legislation.
Yesterday, anti-gun Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) member, along with other MAIG members and other anti-gun mayors were at the state Capitol trying to rally opposition to common sense firearms legislation that will keep law-abiding gun owners from becoming criminals.
Pennsylvania already has a firearms preemption statute giving the state the sole authority to make firearm laws, unfortunately,
there are several anti-gun mayors, Mayor Nutter included, and municipalities who feel they are above the law.
House Bill 1523 and Senate Bill 1438 would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state. If enacted, these bills would help eliminate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been threatened and unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearms preemption law. Citizens should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they don`t even know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.
