When local elected officials violate the law they should be held accountable... JUST LIKE YOU WOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. Local elected officials are not above the law. When local elected officials violate the law by passing their own gun laws, they victimize the citizenry while empowering the criminals! When organizations (such as FOAC) takes them to task in the courts and WINS, the elected officials are not held accountable. Why should they care? They have your tax dollars and free money from folks like Bloomberg to finance their tyranny. HB979 would, among other things, make these mini tyrants financially liable for court costs when they decide to disregard the laws of Pennsylvania and violate YOUR RIGHTS.
CALL YOUR SENATOR'S LOCAL OFFICE and HARRISBURG OFFICE, EMAIL YOUR SENATOR AND EVEN FAX YOUR SENATOR AND URGE YOUR SENATOR TO SUPPORT AND VOTE YEA FOR HB979 Strengthening Preemption.
Stay Armed and Be Well Regulated!!!
Yours In Liberty,
FOAC-ILLEA 2nd VP
