NRA is alerting members on PA bill HB2227. This is the “Red Flag” bill that the GOP has started loving so much.
Under House Bill 2227, a law-abiding gun owner could lose their right to own or possess a firearm and then have the burden placed on them to prove the false nature of the petition in order to have their firearms returned.Â Â This legislationÂ does nothing to improve public safety, and allows for an extremely broad definition of who can petition to remove someone’s Second Amendment rights.
I know other groups are also opposing HB 2060. This basically mirrors federal law on PFAs, which is probably why NRA isn’t opposing it. If you want to throw opposition to HB 2060 into your letters, it couldn’t hurt. It’s not like I think gun control works worth a damn.
