Please sign and pass on if you want to help get national concealed carry reciprocity passed!
After having some time to reflect back on the rally on Monday May 22, 2017, “Make The Second Amendment Great Again,” what Beaver County does at these rallies isn’t matched by any of the other 67 counties or any other group or organization. This isn’t the only thing that our county is great for! We do many things that make our County great.
I thank each and every one of you for participating in fund raising, attending meetings and making schedules. The phone calls that are made by everyone that is involved adds up to hundreds of calls, emails & texts! This kind of effort and your participation make me proud to be from Beaver County.
At the rally our legislators mentioned Beaver County more than any other County, they know about Beaver County and what we do!
Our time and efforts make this worthwhile to enable us to practice our right to defend the Second Amendment!
Hopefully you’re as proud as I am to be a part of the rally and to be from Beaver County!
THANK YOU ALL!

For years Pennsylvania has been wasting millions of dollars supporting a state-specific background check system that can be replaced with sole use of the federal National Instant Check System. In addition to the wasted taxpayer money, the PICS system has for years been used and abused by politicians and bureaucrats to skirt Pennsylvania law against keeping a gun owner registry. It is our goal to evaluate PICS and determine whether it can justify it’s continued cost.
Constitutional Carry (Two-Tiered) – HB170
Constitutional Carry creates a presumption that if you can legally possess a firearm then a ‘license’ is not required within the state, concealed or not, for law abiding citizens. When a state or other jurisdiction has adopted Constitutional Carry, it is legal for law-abiding citizens to carry a handgun, firearm, or other weapon concealed with or without an applicable permit or license.
Further, this law decriminalizes the carry of handguns for self-defense purposes without a license, and puts the burden upon a prosecutor to prove criminal intent of a person carrying a handgun. Also, there are no defined statutory limits as to ‘how’ a legally carried handgun should be carried openly or concealed; thus it is considered Constitutional Carry.
This legislation creates a two-tiered system with the carrying of firearms for lawful purposes:
- Option 1 gives citizens the ability to obtain a (LTCF) License To Carry Firearm permit that is valid throughout Pennsylvania and would provide for carrying firearms in other states.
- Option 2 recognizes that Commonwealth citizens have a fundamental constitutional right to keep and bear arms (Article 1, Section 21) and that ‘no LTCF’ is required for law abiding citizens to carry a firearm throughout Pennsylvania.
Strengthening Castle Doctrine / Disparity of Force in self-defense protection – HB167
While Pennsylvania generally has very reasonable laws relating to the Use of Force and lawful self-defense, a current quirk in the wording of the law creates ambiguity with regards to self-defense where force disparity is not as clear as an attacker with a weapon capable of inflicting serious bodily harm. This proposal would make it clear under Pennsylvania law that a disparity in strength, size, and number of attackers can constitute a threat of serious bodily harm or death.
Local communities have been enacting, or maintaining, gun laws that violate PA Law prohibiting these laws. This is in violation of Title 18, Section 6120 which is clear and unequivocating in this prohibition with the penalty being found in Title 18, section 6119. Current Pennsylvania law was initially enacted in 1974 and since this law is in the PA Crimes Codes the enforcement of this prohibition falls to County District Attorneys who have failed miserably in holding these communities accountable for violating PA Law.
What these bills would do, respectively, is amend either Title 18, Section 6120 (HB 671) or Title 53 (SB 5) with clear language to add standing for individuals and organizations to sue communities which are in violation of the law preemptively and prior to actually being prosecuted. Should an organization or individual win a legal action against a community acting in a criminal fashion this legislation would then provide for legal costs reimbursement.
Stop the Pennsylvania State Police Gun Registry – HB156
Under Pennsylvania law it is illegal for any government entity to maintain a registry of Pennsylvanian’s guns. However, since 1931 the Pennsylvania State Police have maintained a registry of ‘all’ handgun purchasers in Pennsylvania. Since 1998 the PICS (Pennsylvania Instant Check System) has expanded the compilation of this “Record Of Sales (ROS) database”. The PA Supreme Court, in 2004, made a politically correct decision that the Record Of Sales database was incomplete and let the PSP continue to accrue private gun owner information. Numerous anti-gun politicians have seen the weak foundation of the PA Supreme Court decision and have introduced numerous bills to ‘legalize’ the ROS collection of gun owner info. This bill will put a stop to such nonsense by clearly stating that such a database is a registry as prohibited by Pennsylvania law.
Concealed Carry Reciprocity Simplification – HB155
Currently, Pennsylvania’s system for concealed carry permit reciprocity with other states is an overly complicated process that allows for potential abuse by politically motivated Attorneys General. This bill would streamline Pennsylvania’s reciprocity system by simplifying how comparable laws from other states are reviewed and used to evaluate licensing requirements.
Correcting Firearm Transportation Laws (under development)
Due to poorly worded statutory language and definitions, there is common confusion about transporting firearms in Pennsylvania. We hope to clarify the wording and intent of the Uniform Firearms Act in order to provide gun owners with a clear understanding of how to legally transport firearms throughout the Commonwealth.
Targeting Violent Criminals Using Firearms in Crime – Offense Sentences – HB166
This proposal would ensure that criminals that commit violence with firearms serve their sentences consecutively, preventing abuse of the plea bargaining system that allows violent criminals to get out of jail sooner than they should.

GAME COMMISSION REMINDS DEER HUNTERS OF RIFLE RESTRICTIONS
STORY LINK http://www.media.pa.gov/Pages/Game-Commission-Details.aspx?newsid=85
As the statewide firearms deer season approaches, the Pennsylvania Game Commission reminds deer hunters that rifles used during the season must be manually operated.
Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed legislation that will enable the Pennsylvania Game Commission to regulate the use of semiautomatic rifles and air rifles for hunting, and the bill was signed into law this week.
But the Game Commission has not yet made any changes to the lists of lawful arms and ammunition for any hunting season.
For deer hunters in the upcoming firearms deer season, that means all centerfire rifles, handguns and shotguns to be used must be manually operated. The only exception is that semiautomatic shotguns may be used to hunt deer in five counties – Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery – that are defined as Special Regulations Areas.
Semiautomatic rifles generally are not permitted for any type of hunting in any part of the state at this time.
Things could change in the coming months. At its upcoming meetings, the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners will be discussing the newly signed legislation and the possibility of adding semiautomatic rifles and air rifles to the lawful arms and ammunition list for various hunting seasons. But any changes must follow the schedule dictated by required procedure.
