    Default State Rep. Steve Santarsiero wants guns banned in Pa

    Rep. Steve Santarsiero – Early out of the gate, Rep. Santarsiero came out calling for a gun ban in Pennsylvania that would ban not only sale, but possession. The proposal would make tens of thousands of law-abiding residents instant felons.


    I will be sponsoring a bill in the new legislative session that would outlaw both the purchase and possession of assault weapons such as those used in Connecticut last Friday. I know that similar efforts will be made at the federal level –and I sincerely hope that they are successful — but that fact should not prevent us from moving forward with our own legislation here in Pennsylvania. Moreover, I understand that at least one of the bills being considered at the federal level would only prohibit the purchase of these weapons on a going forward basis. If such a limited bill were to become law, it would leave a considerable loophole that we here in Pennsylvania should and, indeed, must close.
    To him, the current lawful possession of firearms is a "loophole" that must be closed.

    That would be a violation of the Pa state constitution, please refer to Article 1 section 21.The right of the citizens to bear arms in defence themselves and the state shall not be questioned.

    Yes, because the assault weapons ban worked so well up there!

    That's disturbing. I've said it before to friends of mine..this horrible incident has prompted emotions and feelings so deep, those of wanting to make things safer, and now we're seeing people speaking from their hearts and not their minds. We all want this type of horror prevented, but few are truly thinking it out, what the best way really is. The simplest solution to them is disarm everyone, but in reality it will never stop an evil individual who will always find a way to harm others. So in return, we, the law abiding citizens who would only use our firearms for self-defense (and other legal activities) would suffer the loss of our rights.

    That really is a disturbing thought.
