    Exclamation Preemption Amendment Accepted in House Committee

    Got this in my email today from the NRA:

    Today, the state House Judiciary Committee passed a firearms preemption amendment to Senate Bill 273 by a 22 to 3 vote. SB 273 was then unanimously voted out of committee, and will now go to the House floor for consideration where it could be voted on as early as next week.

    Offered by state Representative Timothy Krieger (R-27), this amendment would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearm preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state. Furthermore, it helps mitigate the need for litigation by gun owners who have been unduly burdened by local gun control ordinances which violate the current state firearm preemption law. Citizens with no criminal intent should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they do not know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.

    The antis stalled the vote with lots of debate about the proposed anti-gun amendments. None of the anti-gun stuff was accepted. It will probably come back up for final discussion, and possibly a vote when the House gets back from their summer recess.
