    Default Is Someone Aware of this stuff?

    I really do hope someone is keeping track of this stuff! This has been read once and referred to the Judiciary committee.

    I know everyone is wrapped around the axle over what is happening at the federal level! But you better wake up and keep track of state issues also!

    Read it! This make NO provision for LTCF holders or those on legitimate business! Plus it makes it Illegal to possess a firearm on the grounds of ANY public recreation facility. Remember SheFearsNothingl?

    This Anti Perfect Storm has been salivated over for 40 years. They have had all these bills "in waiting" for all that time.

    The Community Organizer/MarxO plan is to "overwhelm the system"

    It is Saul Alinsky/Karl Marx/Bill Ayres/George Soros and the ringleader BHO all wrapped in one final Blitzkrieg on America.

    Because once they got the guns, they OWN US.

    The Gloves are off folks.

    What needs to be done to make this pass, and how do we prevent it?

    Start writing and calling local reps and the governor. Our voices need to be heard folks. Complaining about this stuff on forums help us vent but doesn't impact the people who make or break this legislation.

    Currently, this bill has only been referred to the Senate Judiciary. Hopefully, it will be shot down there. But we do need to make our local Senators aware that we know about this proposed legislation and that we do not support it. I'm going to write Senators Vogel (who is very pro-gun) and Christiana (I'm still not 100% sure where he stands yet). I suggest you all use the Politics link up to of the page here to find out who your reps are and contact them immediately. Last thing we need now are more GFZs and more public places that will force us to be defenseless and actually charge us with a felony.

    There are people who watch this stuff and who are probably already talking to legislators about it, but you are 100% right - there are forces in our state who want to turn us into another NJ, and I'm afraid that vigilance and playing whack-a-mole is just going to be a part of life, at least for the rest of my lifetime.

    Don't sit back and hope the other guys take care of you. Hammer your representatives and support the folks who are doing the heavy lifting behind the scenes.
    Ya can't argue with figures. Two half nuthins is a whole nuthin.

    I'm new to PA but I just sent my State Senator a letter, so will my wife. Also, I sent another letter to a State Senator in a near by district...is that okay?
