Sestak, who is challenging Specter in the Dem primary, is calling on him to vote against National Concealed Carry Reciprocity:
â€œPennsylvania has a right to determine who can carry a concealed weapon in the Commonwealth,â€ said Congressman Sestak. â€œWeâ€™ve dealt with tragedy after tragedy from gun violence, and while I support the right to bear arms, I also support sensible concealment regulations to protect our communities and law enforcement officers â€” and I support the right of Pennsylvania to make those decisions. I call on Arlen Specter to vote against the Thune Amendment and to take the lead in opposing the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.â€
The 600,000+ Pennsylvanians who have a License to Carry will benefit from this law far more than other states will.Â Pennsylvania’s requirements for getting a concealed carry permit are among the least burdensome in the nation.Â We don’t require training, and the fee is 26 dollars.Â If Joe Sestak is thinking he’s going to hurt Specter on guns, in Pennsylvania, he’s probably doing the opposite.Â We tend to like our Dems pro-gun, thank you very much.
