Pennsylvania: House Democrats Resume Attack on Law-Abiding Gun Owners Tomorrow

On Tuesday, November 14th, the House Judiciary Committee will vote on a pair of gun control bills designed to make being a law-abiding gun owner in Pennsylvania a bit more treacherous.  As crime continues to ravage the streets of Philadelphia, the Majority Democrats’ answer is to harass law-abiding gun owners in every city and town in the Commonwealth not called Philadelphia.  The more obvious solution would be to have the city’s pro-criminal district attorney start prosecuting the law breakers they catch instead of turning them loose to reoffend.

HB 941 by Rep. Darisha Parker (D-Philadelphia) holds gun owners liable for having their property stolen and misused.  HB 1629 by Rep. House Judiciary Chairman Tim Briggs (D-Montgomery County), forces gun owners to keep all firearms in their home under lock and key.  When seconds matter in a self-defense situation, this dangerous legislation puts law-abiding gun owners at a distinct disadvantage to home invaders.  

Does some of this sound familiar?  It should.  Back in May of this year, newly-minted Majority Democrats charged out of the gate and passed a couple gun control bills, which ultimately failed. Rather than face another embarrassing defeat, they hit the pause button on HB 731, a mandatory storage bill very similar to HB 1629.  

With last week’s election over, House Democrats are back to playing more politics and attacking law-abiding gun owners.  These ideas were bad in May, and they are still bad.

HB 941 and HB 1629 impact every single gun owner in the state.  Just having a firearm puts you at risk of being on the wrong side of the law.  They are telling you how to store your property in your own home, and once you have been victimized by a thief, they intend to hold YOU liable.  

Please contact your State Representative immediately and respectfully request a “NO” vote on these two bills!
