|Pennsylvania: 2014 Legislative Session Ends With Victory|
|After four years of effort, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives finally passed critical firearms preemption legislation. Yesterday, the state House voted to concur on the Senate amendments to House Bill 80 by an overwhelming 138 to 56 vote. HB 80, when signed into law, will strengthen the state firearms preemption statute to further ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout Pennsylvania.
State firearms preemption was originally enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature to avoid the possibility of 2,639 separate firearm laws across the Commonwealth. However, over recent years, more than fifty localities have enacted gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law, creating a myriad of local gun laws that make compliance difficult for responsible gun owners. HB 80 will provide a way for responsible gun owners to hold these municipalities responsible for infringing on our Second Amendment rights.
We are also pleased to report that after much hard work, House Bill 1750, misguided legislation being pushed by the Humane Society of the United States, died in the House Rules Committee and is no longer a threat this year to the age-old tradition of organized bird shoots.
We would like to give a special thanks to our local sportsmen’s groups, Firearm Owners Against Crime, Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania and our NRA members who tirelessly contacted their state legislators throughout the process. We appreciate all of the hard work that went into yesterday’s success.
HB 80 will now be sent to Governor Tom Corbett (R) for his expected signature. Using the contact information provided below, please contact Governor Corbett and politely encourage him to sign HB 80 into law.

NRA Endorses Tom Corbett
On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Tom Corbett for Governor in Pennsylvania.
Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Corbett has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2014 general election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun candidate who has supported the NRA’s position on issues of importance to gun owners and sportsmen.
“Tom Corbett has stood up to the gun control crowd and protected our Second Amendment freedoms in Pennsylvania,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “As Governor, he signed into law ‘Castle Doctrine’ legislation expanding protection to law-abiding citizens for self-defense. Prior to that, when he served as Attorney General, Tom tripled the number of right-to-carry reciprocity agreements with other states allowing Pennsylvanians to better protect themselves and their families while traveling outside the Keystone state.”
Gov. Corbett has a proven record supporting our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms. He believes hunting is a valuable tool for wildlife management, a positive use of natural resources, and an American tradition that teaches young people responsibility and respect for the outdoors. In addition, Corbett signed pro-gun “friend of the court” briefs in the landmark Heller and McDonald cases asserting that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right for all law-abiding Americans.
“We can continue to count on Tom Corbett to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in Pennsylvania,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Tom for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Pennsylvania to vote Tom Corbett for Governor on November 4.”
The race for Pennsylvania Governor is FAST becoming a referendum on the right to bear arms with even national implications! The most recent additions to this unfolding drama is the endorsement of Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Tom Wolf, by Cease-Fire PA a statewide anti-gun group and anti-gun former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (creator of the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns)!
Every gun owner in Pennsylvania has a right to be concerned as well as an obligation to be informed as to where the real issues lie with both candidates for governor!
Gov. Corbett signed Castle doctrine into law and Cease-Fire PA opposed this legislation and a citizen’s right to self-defense. Further as an attorney general, Tom Corbett used his office to spearhead the gun violence task force in Philadelphia that in one year reduced overall homicides by 25%.
Cease-Fire PA makes erroneous claims that Tom Corbett has not done anything to protect our families (as if they know ‘anything’ other than banning gun ownership) and yet the very anti-gun agenda that Tom Wolf has pledged to support from Cease-Fire PA has been shown to significantly increase the likelihood of harm to our families.
The factually and philosophically challenged anti-gun groups of cease-fire PA and Bloomberg’s minions are hard at work trying to advance a candidate to office who has said in writing that he will work hard to advance the anti-gun agenda. This has never worked in any state in our nation and this agenda is before all of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on this November 4! The stark contrast between these two candidates, Tom Corbett versus Tom Wolf, has never been more starkly apparent.
The gunowners in Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, New York, and others all felt that it could not happen to them! It has! It is up to you now to decide if Pennsylvania joins the ranks of those states on November 4! Please try to do all you can and to get your friends and family to the polls! Thank you for all your time, your consideration of these concerns and any assistance you can offer!
Kim Stolfer, Pres.
