Rendell managed to get a judiciary committee vote on his gun control measures:
At the request of Governor Ed Rendell (D), the Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee has tentatively scheduled a meeting for Tuesday, November 20 at 10:00am, to vote on several anti-gun measures.Â The package of bills include one-gun-a-month, a requirement for individuals to report lost or stolen firearms, and legislation that would overturn Pennsylvaniaâ€™s current preemption law.
The bills are:
- HB 18, which basically destroys our state’s preemption law
- HB 22, which limits gun purchases to one gun per month
- HB 29, which requires the reporting of a lost or stolen firearm to police under severe legal penalties.Â This bill has the potential to trap unaware gun owners who are victimized by crimes.
It’s critical to write your state representatives and members of the Judiciary committee and tell them to vote no on these bills.Â Follow the link to the NRA alert to get contact info for the state representatives.
