Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default Republican Speaker of Dem Controlled House

it looks like the PA house of representatives might retain the current republican speaker even though the democrats have a 1 vote majority as one democrat is going to vote for the current (republican) speaker to keep the post.

Looks like Perzel didn't get elected, but another R did. I suspect that this isn't the end of developments in the legislature. I suspect we may see a few of the moderate dems flip to the R side, I'd personally rather they switch to the L side, but I doubt that will happen.

I heard the new guy is pro-gun. A nice break for us, if true, since he's in a position to decide which bills leave committee and which die on the vine, unsubmitted.

I'm beginning to love partisan gridlock...

Agreed. Just remember, crisis equals opportunity.

Just beware. Dennie O'Brien is a decent fellow, but he has reigned in Democrat controlled Philadelphia for 30+ years now. One does not do that without making deals.

If it came down to his vote to decide if Philly gets to control its own gun laws, I wouldnt place bets on our rights.

Hopefully I'm way off base.
