â€œFrom my own experience growing up in Kansas and being District Attorney of Philadelphia, I know states need to prescribe their own rules for carrying a concealed deadly weapon. This is the essence of federalism. My vote against the Thune Amendment will not limit the constitutional rights of hunters and gun owners. Pennsylvania already recognizes concealed carry permits from 24 other states where their laws are similar.â€
And only one of those states borders Pennsylvania Senator!Â You have to go to West Virginia, in the Southwest Corner of the state, to be able to legally carry a firearm to protect yourself out of this state with a Pennsylvania License to Carry.Â There are over 600,000 of us, and we will remember this in 2010.Â This was a dumb move on Specter’s part, who is already facing an uphill battle from both the right and left.
Call Specter now.Â Flood his switchboard, and let him know you are pissed.
