Proposed Pennsylvania House Legislation HB1537

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

This bill is not only anti-gun but it expands government power greatly by making the mere presence of a supposedly secret compartment a crime in and of itself without anything in it.

Coupled with the new warrantless search powers recently expanded by the PA Supreme Court, this is a TERRIBLE expansion of government control over private property and Freedom.

Subject:

Description: An Act amending Titles 18 (Crimes and Offenses) and 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for the offense and consequences of possession with criminal intent of a vehicle with false compartments.

Session: 2013-2014 Regular Session
