With several hundred pro-gun activists converging on the Harrisburg Capitol Monday – many wearing Second Amendment T-shirts – it was not the day for Pennsylvania lawmakers to tackle any tough gun measures.
Instead, state House members approved several initiatives that bore no resemblance to an actual crackdown on handgun trafficking.
In turn, the gun-rights supporters celebrated the defeat last week of a tough anti-trafficking measure.
Charlton Heston would be proud.
No, an actual crackdown on handgun trafficing looks like this. It doesn’t look like passing more laws that we’re not going to enforce.
That’s why there’s no time to waste for gun-safety advocates to resume lobbying lawmakers to pass real gun-safety measures that will protect taxpayers and help police put real heat on traffickers.
Hey Inquirer, your bias is showing.
Just ask House Speaker Dennis O’Brien (R., Phila.), who twisted himself into a pretzel trying to explain why he was the only city lawmaker to vote against the tougher gun measure on April 1. Maybe the answer is to elect representatives who will do what constituents want.
Those of us in the Philadelphia area need to do everything we can to make sure Dennis O’Brien keeps his seat. The gun controllers are going to go after him, and the Philadelphia media will be their willing puppets. This article could have been written by CeaseFire, hell it probably was written by CeaseFire. This is what we’re up against, and if we don’t work hard for politicians that support us, we’re going to lose it all.
