More Stalling in the Pennsylvania Legislature

Dear Pennsylvania GOP,

You know what you need to do this year? Motivate some voters. One way to motivate some pro-gun voters is to get moving on preemption legislation that you guys have been ignoring in various forms through the last four year instead of recessing to enjoy spring weather.

Of course, you’ll need more than just pro-gun voters to help save your party’s most visible candidates this year. The completely lack of ability to move any real reforms on ridiculously popular issues like liquor privatization have turned quite a few voters off since it’s clear that a vote for some of your candidates isn’t a vote for any kind of change at all. Regardless, you need all the friends you can get this year.

Sincerely,

Bitter

Dear Pennsylvania Democrats,

You know what some of your moderates may need this year in tough districts? Votes to show they aren’t totally associated with the complete disaster the national party seems to want to bring down on candidates who aren’t running in solid blue districts full of rabidly liberal voters. You know an issue that can help with that? Gun rights. One thing you might want to encourage from some of your more moderate Democrats is to publicly push for the House leadership get moving on preemption legislation, but without the 124 amendments filed.

Now, because the national party has done a really good job at pissing off lots of people across the country, I can’t promise this vote will save you if you’re being challenged by a credible opponent. But, it certainly will help cement your NRA grade while the other guy has to run on a questionnaire only rating.

Sincerely,

Bitter

Dear Pennsylvania Gun Owners,

Have you called your state representatives yet to ask them why they aren’t moving this bill?

Sincerely,

Bitter

    Leave it to our solidly Republican legislature to not get anything done for gun rights, or really anything.

  2. Bryan S. says:

    And I quote:

    “If we pass no gun bills this year, we win.”

    That is the sentiment flowing in the house. They are afraid that anything pro-gun will get thrown in their face in the media, with Bloomberg money behind it.

      I hope Penn State fans appreciate what they have created. It was her damn win that creates that perception. I hope they are enjoying every bit of what they voted for.

      • Patrick H says:

        I feel the exact same way. And they didn’t even get what they wanted- an investigation into Corbett over PSU. Idiots.

        • Bitter says:

          I might be just a tad bit jaded over the current AG’s handling of cases that hurt her party over those that don’t, but I have a gut feeling that her “investigation” will suddenly turn up results right around the end of October that just happen to law horrible blame directly on Tom Corbett. As soon as she made that the focus of her campaign, I assumed that was the plan. Maybe I’ll be wrong, but I’m not sure that I will be.
