Here is a way for you to take out the stress of all the recent anti gun activity.

Here is a way for each of you to act individually as part of the larger effort to keep and preserve our rights.

Here is you opportunity to be involved in passing a PRO GUN LAW in Pennsylvania that is needed and addresses the illegal efforts of the anti gunners.


Go to this thread and do as asked:

Then pass the word and get all of your friends and acquaintances engaged as well.



Together, we can make a difference. But each of us have to take the time to be involved, take a stand, and follow up.

What does this bill say? why should we support it? I went and looked it up and suport the bill, but many will not take the timeor make the effort but would support it if they could read more about it.

Contact your state legislators TODAY to support Senate Bill 876

Senate Bill 876, important firearms preemption legislation, has been introduced by state Senator Richard Alloway (R-33). If passed and enacted into law, this measure would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.

Title 18 Pa.C.S., Section 6120 of Pennsylvania law specifically states that "No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth."
State firearms preemption was enacted by the state legislature to avoid the possibility of 2,639 separate firearm laws across the Commonwealth. However, over recent years, nearly 50 local governments have enacted gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law.

The myriad of local firearm laws makes compliance very difficult and nearly impossible for responsible gun owners. This creates a situation where gun owners and sportsmen have difficulty even knowing about certain laws, much less understanding them. SB 876 will correct the problem by preventing localities from imposing ordinances more restrictive than laws passed by the Pennsylvania Legislature.

Last year, the Pennsylvania Legislature failed to act on this important pro-gun reform. Make sure this does not happen again. Contact your state Representative and Senator TODAY and urge them to support

Also addresses the issue of a local government restricting ammo or reloading components and powder.

Also addresses reimbursement of legal fee's for the winning court challenge to an illegal restriction.

The bill is five pages long. Easy reading.

Everything underlined is new language. Anything in []'s is being removed.

Link to the actual bill is in the first post on this thread:

Here's the thing.

There is a constant stream of posts and threads lamenting the anti gunners coming after us in this forum.

Here is a bill that if we can pass it that will stop a bunch of nonsense from happening. Or - if it does, there is a clear unequivocal lawful statute that addresses the issue(s).

New is the addition on restrictions on ammo and reloading components. The addition of this section addresses the concerns of many posting here in this forum over the last several weeks.

So the question is, who is going to embrace this bill and actively engage and press for passage?

Being involved in this is not like taking a second job. Supporting this bill via making a few phone calls , writing a short email from time to time, and simply standing up for our rights is all that is required.

For those lamenting the inability to attend the gun rally Tuesday due to work or other reasons, this is just as important. Maybe more so. The rally was viability. This bill is resolution and a legal preventive measure.

If we apply steady, overwhelming, and constant pressure to our senators, they will push the bill.

The goal here is to have a huge response out of the gate on this. Then, keep that pressure on and or directed at those holding things up as required.
