U.S.A. -( Pennsylvania’s effort to join 21 other states with Constitutional Carry advanced as the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chaired by Senator Lisa Baker, voted to move Senate Bill 565 to the Senate floor for consideration.

Constitutional carry legislation isn’t for criminals, it simply puts law-abiding citizens who are otherwise legally able to possess and carry a firearm on equal footing, by codifying the inherent right to carry a firearm into statute. It also retains a permitting process for gun owners who wish to take advantage of concealed carry reciprocity with other states.

The NRA is the national leader in the “constitutional carry” movement where law-abiding individuals are not required to obtain a government permit to carry a firearm for lawful purposes. Today’s move by Baker’s committee advances the fight to protect and expand the right of law-abiding Pennsylvanians to carry and remove unnecessary government red tape and delays from the process.

We commend Senator Lisa Baker for her continued leadership on issues critical to Pennsylvania’s law-abiding gun owners.​

Born and raised in Pa and I’m ashamed to admit that anymore with all the anti-gun efforts going there. Good luck to the legislature in getting this law passed but they better get ready to override the veto that POS governor Wolf will undoubtably exercise.


The powers that be don’t care if you’re law abiding or not, the first thing they go after is your 2nd amendment rights ( NO MATTER THE CRIME OR NO CRIME ). I am living it, my wife is dead because of them not caring about a male co-worker threatening too kill for months. She took her own life & then they came after me. They’re corrupt, they lie, they make shit up just too get you in jail & you get no say in the matter, ( OFF TO JAIL YOU GO ). I’m still fighting going on 5… Read more »


Ha-hahahaha!!! STOP! I’m going to have a heart attack from laughing! Wolf and Shitpiro pass a pro-gun bill!? Not in my lifetime!! Maybe I’ll have that heart attack because of pure un-adulterated disgust of those two! Penna. used to be one of the top hunting states in the country then we got all these gun hating Demonrats to take care of us. If this bill ever made it to becoming a law under these two, Maybe I’ll have a heart attack for real!!


Toddler Governor Wolf and Tool Josh Shapiro think they understand safety by eliminating guns from law abiding citizens. This bill will not pass because of their moronic understanding of safety. They can’t understand what another man may be capable of, because they are not capable of anything themselves.

 Article I, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution states: “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.” PA politicians are long accustomed to violating both the US and State constitutions with impunity when it comes to firearms. We are fast approaching the second “shot heard ’round the world” event, as the left will inevitably push too far and equally inevitably, ultimately reap what they have been sowing. Most of the people reading this comment have already decided that they will refuse to comply with unconstitutional law after a… Read more »

Twisted mindset, or Communist plot?
Law-abiding citizens are required ask and maybe receive permission; criminals require neither….
Sworn to uphold…. what again?
