NRA has a list of who did and who didn’t vote in favor of the gun control bills before the House Judiciary Committee this morning.
Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and thank those that voted â€œNoâ€ to these anti-gun measures. Also, please contact those committee members that voted â€œyesâ€ and ask them why they voted to restrict the rights of Pennsylvaniaâ€™s law-abiding gun owners.
I agree, it’s important to follow up with the legislators. It’s important to let our allies know their support is appreciated, and to let our foes know we’re paying attention. Follow the link to get contact info, and to find out how house members voted.
UPDATE: Looking back at my predictions, there were a few surprises:
Representative Chelsea Wagner (wow, she may be in favor of gun control, but she’s pretty cute), who replaced NRA A rated Mike Diven, voted against us on both bills.Â Â That’s really disappointing.
Representative Kate Harper voted with us on weakning preemption and against us on one-gun-a-month.Â She keeps her C rating for that, I think.Â I thought she’d cave to Rendell completely.Â Glad I was wrong.
Representative Mackereth I put down as maybe, and she voted with us.Â She responded to me:
Please know that I will NOT be supporting HB 18, 22, or 29.Â I feel the focus should be placed on prevention programs that have been proven to work rather than band-aid measures that are ineffective.Â I am continuing my efforts to focus on crime prevention, while protecting the rights of gun owners.
Good show.Â NRA should upgrade her B+ to an A rating.
Representative Bernie O’Neil voted with us on preemption but against us on one-gun-a-month.Â That’s disappointing, because he’s from my county.Â He’s A- rated.Â I might suggest that after this he deserves to lose a whole letter grade and go to B-.
