Pennsylvania Emergency Powers Bill

Couldn’t get this up earlier because of the server crash, but Pennsylvania has an emergency powers bill that needs our support:

Today, Senate Bill 1172, Pennsylvania’s “Emergency Powers” legislation, sponsored by State Senator Robert Robbins (R-50), was passed unanimously by the State Senate.  The bill now heads to the State House of Representatives for consideration.

SB 1172 will protect our Second Amendment rights by prohibiting any government agency from confiscating or regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms during a state of emergency, such as occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Please contact your State Representative today and urge him or her to protect our Second Amendment rights by supporting SB1172.  To find your State Representative, please click here.

    I don’t have the time to wade through it.

    Uh is there ANYTHING in there about the .gov from contracting, say, blackwater, wackenhut, or lil’ adolf’s white power superstar jubilee band to go do the goose-stepping for them?

    Can the “.gov agency” be a FEDERAL agency, like maybe the national guard called up to active duty?

    If so the bill is pointless and the guns WILL be taken. Again.

    There are a number of these being looked at around the nation. That’s good.
