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.

PM me with your name and town you live in and I will have a guest badge waiting for you on Saturday. You must be a registered board member. I must have your information by Thursday, Oct 16, at 6:00 PM. After that time I will not be able to reserve your entrance badge.

Got a question about the Guest Badge.

The Guest Badge will allow the wearer to come and go throughout the entire show. You can leave, come back, leave and come back as many times as you like. The badge will also allow you to return on Sunday.

Hey Bill! I'll be attending! These shows are always great and I'm looking forward to finding a deal on an AR15! See you then.

We can arrange that, but please take into consideration the following:

We draw collectors (displayers) and dealers from all over the country. To make it easy on their distant travelling, we close at 2:00 pm on Sunday and cut off admissions to the public at 1:00pm.

Well the time has ended for the badges. Thanks to everybody who is going to attend.

All approved members have received a PM from me stating your badge will be waiting. It will be at the front entrance to the show.

There was a couple of incidents of double ID's. That is an abuse of the club generosity and those individuals have to pay to come.

Each guest will receive a letter with their guest badge. The letter will ask you about the posibility of future events.

Please read it and email me your feedback.

See you there.

Bill Ricca

Thumbs up Re: Allentown Gun Show- Forks of the Delaware

Hi Bill,
I just wanted to thank you again for the badge and free admission to the gun show today. I must say it was much larger than I had expected. (I never attended a show at the fairgrounds before.) I thought there was a nice mix of antiques and modern weapons. I especially enjoyed some of the displays of older flintlocks and US Navy boarding weapons. Talk about a great day! I was out early for the open of early muzzle loader and went to the show in the afternoon. I didn't get my AR15 though. I was a little short of cash and I don't want to settle for something cheaper. I think by the next show I'll be ready to get a good rifle and maybe a new smaller carry pistol. Anyway, great show and thank you again!

Sincerely,

Ed Grecsek
