Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Default Gilberton,pa

saw this on another forum:

States and towns take action to nullify unconstitutional federal gun disarmament laws
http://www.naturalnews.com/038668_gu...itutional.html

But others are taking a different tack altogether, like officials in Gilberton, Pa., a small burough in Schuylkill County. Though the town only boasts a population of a little more than 820, the top law enforcement official there is making a big, bold statement.

Police Chief Mark Kessler has written what he calls a Second Amendment Preservation ordinance that he plans to introduce to the town council during its Jan. 24 meeting. If adopted, the ordinance would require the city to "enact any and all measures as may be necessary" to prevent any violations of the Second Amendment by any federal, state or local government or entity.

Now all gun manufacturers should open up a plant there and show the rest what's it like. Unemployment is high and labor is cheap. With Cabelas next door we could have our own gun valley.
