Anti-gun lawmakers from Philadelphia are speaking out on Pennsylvania’s new concealed carry reciprocity restrictions. What are they saying?
- “I donâ€™t think itâ€™s going to drastically affect violence in Philadelphia.” – Rep. Kevin Boyle (D-rated by NRA)
- â€œItâ€™s not the people with legitimate guns, itâ€™s the people with the street guns who are destroying the neighborhood.â€ – Rep. James Clay (refused to answer NRA member questions during his election)
- â€œWe have to be realistic. This isnâ€™t a panacea thatâ€™s going to solve all of our problems.â€ – Rep. Brendan Boyle (D+ rating from NRA)
In other words, this served absolutely no purpose even though many of the Philadelphia lawmakers previously claimed that “closing the Florida Loophole” would absolutely make a huge difference to solving Philadelphia’s crime rates. Now that they have it, these lawmakers are calling for more laws and restrictions.
