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 Legal and Practical Aspects of Self Defense with Firearms

ANNOUNCING A CLASS IN
LEGAL & PRACTICAL ASPECTS of
SELF-DEFENSE with FIREARMS
Hellertown Sportsmen's Association
Saturday, September 15, 2007
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Do you have a carry permit? Keep a gun in your home or place of business for self-defense? Ever think of using your
sporting clays shotgun or deer rifle if you ever had an intruder in the home? Then this is a MUST ATTEND class for you!
Taught by a recognized authority in the field of defensive firearms training and the law, this 3-hour classroom session will not teach
you the misinformation you've heard from the guys at the local gunshop ("If he falls on the front porch, drag him inside" or "If
he doesn't have a weapon, put a steak knife from the kitchen in his hand"), but it will address the legal standards of justification for
use of deadly force in self-defense, duty to retreat, assessment of threat vs. distance, action vs. reaction, the purpose of shooting in
defense of self and others, selection of firearms and related equipment for self-defense, defense options (pepper spray, stun guns, etc.),
recommended tactics for self-defense in the home, covering "suspects" at gunpoint, dim light and threat assessment, what to do in the
immediate aftermath of a shooting, interfacing with the police, possibilities of prosecution and civil suit, and post-shooting trauma.
Classroom presentation will be supported by a short written handout. Q&A session will address your individual questions and
concerns. Participants will receive certificates of attendance.
