Critically Important Update: PA Senate to Hold Hearings in September on Gun Control and the Constitution

Date: 08/25/2019

IF you believe in your/our Right to Keep and Bear Arms then please pay attention to this alert.  We need your help to get the word out, and please attend, these 2nd Amendment/Article 1, Section 21 PA Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings in Harrisburg, PA on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 and Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 in the North Office Building, Hearing Room 1.

The 1st Day of Hearings: Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 ***9:00AM-12:0PM*** will focus on mental and behavioral health issues related to recent mass murders and violence.

The 2nd Day of Hearings: Wednesday, September 25th, 2019 ***1:00PM-4:00PM*** will focus on Gun Issues such as Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO/Red Flag Laws-Gun Confiscation Without Due Process), Universal Gun Registration (Universal Background Checks), Gun & Magazine Bans, etc.

The paid Bloomberg red and yellow shirts WILL be there pushing their manufactured talking points. We all need to be there to counter their paid anti-gun presence, and to represent the pro 2A position of the silent majority of Pennsylvania. If you want to stop Pennsylvania from adopting New Jersey anti-gun laws please attend these hearings.

We are asking each of you to help in absolutely overwhelming the Capitol inside and outside with people recognizable as 2A supporters by filling the Capitol Building in Harrisburg beyond capacity for 2 days on Sept 24-25, 2019 and demonstrate to everyone, including the biased media, that citizens DO support our Constitutional Freedoms.

Remember what happened last year in how leadership rammed through HB 2060 and how the anti-gun community has crowed about that victory? IF we do NOT make this a maximum effort to stand strong then we will see the legislature capitulate on even worse laws that will affect virtually ‘every’ gun owner throughout Pennsylvania!

You know we would NOT ask if it wasn’t important and critical that every gun owner make every effort to go to Harrisburg to stand with us!

Details of the bills in question can be found here and here and here and an overview of 'ALL' of the anti-gun bills can be found here!

Kim Stolfer, President
