Pennsylvania Gun Control Bills Recommitted to Another Committee

U.S.A. -( Gun control legislation hit a bump in the road in Harrisburg Yesterday.  Your NRA-ILA State Director attended a standing-room-only hearing at the Capitol yesterday morning and reported that the gun control bills on Yesterday’s agenda were recommitted to the House Local Government Committee.  After the hearing, incensed gun control proponents literally chased after legislators hoisting signs and yelling.

What does this mean?  Yesterday’s agenda featured several gun control bills, including a semi-auto ban, an extreme risk protection order bill, an attack on the state’s preemption law, and a mandatory storage bill.  In recent days, Democrats have doubled down on exploiting tragedies by using parliamentary moves to discharge bills from committee without a committee vote.  They want to punish law-abiding Pennsylvania gun owners for the actions of deranged criminals in other states.  These bills are still very much alive.   However, the bully tactics of gun control groups have been met with resistance.  The State Senate also voted 28-21 this afternoon to block discharge petitions in that chamber.

Yesterday’s meeting bordered on raucous at times.  Minority Democrats on the committee resorted to the typical rhetoric which fanned the flames.  The twenty gun-grabbers in the room were easily identifiable with their orange shirts.  They hoisted up signs inside the committee room and were quite “vocal” after things did not go their way.

We would like to thank House Judiciary Chair Rob Kauffman for maintaining decorum in the committee and applaud his resilience for not being bullied into acting to appease the mob.  Harrisburg Democrats are desperate to turn attention away from soaring gas prices, out-of-control inflation, and a whole host of problems that are plaguing their party.  Unfortunately, they are willing to exploit tragedy to advance their gun control agenda while some prosecutors, like Philadelphia’s Larry Krasner, cannot be bothered to prosecute criminals and put them in jail.

Please continue to follow NRA-ILA alerts for the latest developments in Harrisburg.  Your NRA will continue to be there fighting against these infringements.

When will the attack begin on the democratic policies that have plagued our country since the election 2020. The democrats continue to fail all Americans for their own political gain and total power. The hope of a one party government for generations to come is now all that matters to the democratic socialist party. There partnership with the global elite and the great for a one world controlled government & their parties seat at that table. Will cost our country everything if americans continue to let this happen. Disarming the American public is there agenda today so that the… Read more »


Spot on.


Thank you my friend now if we can get others to understand the real message from the democrats and the danger ahead.


The word is getting out. One thing for sure, Ammoland has some very articulate content providers that generate plenty of concise, logical resolutions to the dimocRAT instigated societal problems for our use in defeating those who would put us in chains or worse. Every day, I see something here I can put in my political quiver to use on the wannabe tyrant that lives across the street or down the road. Time for each and every one of us to go out using our brains and mouth in our circle of influence and figuratively slay every dimocRAT and I must… Read more »

The Democrats have stepped in it big time with the Biden-Harris disaster administration on nearly every front, so they are hoping people will focus on their favorite old divisive issues of abortion rights and gun control instead of the economic mess we are swamped with due to their own doings. Joe Biden said of these shootings “how many lives have to be lost before we act?” Better he look at how many lives he threw away in Iraq and Afghanistan of which he was full party to. The number of innocent Christians murdered in those countries as a direct result… Read more »
