- House Bill 1043 would create a new Bureau of Illegal Firearms Trafficking or a â€œFirearm Trafficking Czarâ€ in the Office of the Pennsylvania Attorney General. Â Passage of this bill has the potential of establishing yet another anti-gun biased bureaucratic agency within the state government.
- House Bill 1044 would gut Pennsylvaniaâ€™s firearm preemption statute which currently allows only the State Legislature to enact laws pertaining to firearms. Without a state preemption law, the result would be a complex patchwork of restrictions that change from one local jurisdiction to the next.
- House Bill 1045 would bring California-style gun-control to the Keystone State and ultimately ban many semi-automatic firearms commonly owned by Pennsylvanians.
Contact information for the committee is here. We can’t count on these bills to be defeated. Remember, New Jersey was a pro-gun state until the day it wasn’t. So it will be the same for us if we do nothing.
