Yesterday, the Senate Local Government Committee passed enhanced preemption legislation, Senate Bill 531 by a 7 to 4 vote. SB 531 now heads to the Senate for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 531 when it comes up for a vote.
Senate Bill 531 seeks to strengthen Pennsylvania’s current preemption laws by allowing PA gun owners or organizations with members who are PA gun owners to sue local municipalities that violate the preemption law. Recently, there have been multiple local municipalities attempting to enact their own gun control through local ordinances or resolutions. These types of unnecessary anti-gun measures attempt to go beyond state law by imposing further burdens, and even BANS on certain firearms for law-abiding gun owners in Pennsylvania.
Again, please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 531 when it comes up for a vote.
