HB 1845 Considered – One Amendment Withdrawn

According to today’s session report for the Pennsylvania General Assembly, Representative Levdansky has withdrawn one amendment, A06178, from consideration. Should be noted that this is not the “Lost and Stolen” amendment, but one relating to the original bill, that has to do with altered obliterated serial numbers.  Doesn’t say anything about whether “Lost and Stolen” was considered today, though it was supposed to be on the agenda.  I’ll let folks know when I know more.

What happened can be described in this AP article.  My information was incorrect:

Rep. Bryan Cutler, R-Lancaster, withdrew from the House floor a pending constitutional challenge to legislation that would require owners to report within 72 hours when they realize a handgun has been lost or stolen. Cutler said he would withdraw the constitutional question because of House scheduling needs, but intended to renew it whenever the gun measure comes back before the chamber, perhaps as early as Tuesday.

Sorry folks, I try to be more reliable, but it was hard to tell from the state’s web site exactly what was going on.

UPDATE: The vote on all this is apparently going to be on Wednesday.  It’s looking good, but we need to keep the pressure on.

  1. I see that there has been some kind of Constitutional challenge to the “lost or stolen” language (whether that’s in reference to the U.S. Constitution, or Pennsylvania’s, I don’t know). Supposedly it was withdrawn, for some kind of technical, scheduling reason, but will be put back in place when needed.
