There are four pieces of important legislation in the Pennsylvania House, listed below and on the attached chart. That chart has all of the PA State Reps in Beaver, Butler, Lawrence and Washington Counties, and whether they have cosponsored these bills. Their USPS mail & email addresses are listed, along with phone numbers for local and Harrisburg offices to make it easy to contact them.
If you see your Rep. has not cosponsored these bills, please contact his or her office. Ask for his or her support and tell them why you think they should.
To increase your effectiveness, send this to your family and friends and ask them to do the same, even if they live in a different area in one of these counties.
These Bills Are
Constitutional Carry (no bill # yet) (59 Cosponsors)- PA Rep. Aaron Bernstine. His district covers portions of Beaver, Butler, & Lawrence Counties. As long as you’re a lawful gun owner, acting in a lawful manner, you can carry concealed without a “License To Carry Firearms.” Let’s face it, only the law abiding folks bother to get a LTCF. See Cosponsorship memo for additional details.
Repeal & Replace PA Instant Check System, HB280 (21 Cosponsors)- PA Rep. Jason Ortitay. His district covers portions of Washington and Allegheny Counties. The PICS system is so bad, millions will have to be spent to bring it up to speed. A PICS check for a firearm purchase also includes a check with NICS by the PA State Police. So why the duplication? See Cosponsorship memo for additional details.
Preemption over local firearms and ammunition regulations (no bill # yet) (43 Cosponsors) – PA State Rep. Matthew Dowling. His district is in Somerset County. If you run afoul of an illegal local ordinance, you’ll be able to sue that local municipality to recover your legal fees and lost income. See Cosponsorship memo for additional details.
The following bill may not appear 2nd Amendment oriented, but it gets to the core of freedom, that is, the right to free and fair elections.
Abolish the No Excuse Mail In Vote, HB25 (23 Cosponsors) – PA State Rep. Mike Puskaric. His district covers portions of Washington & Allegheny Counties. With the mass confusion and mail-in ballot irregularities in the last election, along with the Governor’s will to overstep and chip away at the separation of powers, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court having no problem overstepping its boundaries, this situation needs correcting. See Cosponsorship memo for additional details.
