    Actually, as All citizens should be gun owners to comply with the PA Militia laws, this simply seems like common sense.

    Yep. You have a duty to appear when summoned, bearing a serviceable firearm similar to those in common use at the time of summoning.

    M16's and M4's, and the Beretta M9, are the common use firearms at this very moment. So, every able bodied person has a duty to own an AR15 and a Beretta M9/92FS. ...until at least the rifles and/or handguns are actually changed out in our military - then you would need to own a similar model of the replacement.

    We're ALREADY protected by the U.S. Constitution.

    This is meaningless.
    The Constitution does not say that a person can yell wolf in a crowded theater.

    I'm already a protected class, US citizen and PA resident. My rights are already affirmed by two Constitutions. If the politicians and the legal business would abide by those documents the idea of protected classes would never come up.

    Your rights are also infringed by multiple laws at both the state and federal levels.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    My thoughts exactly. It so happens that we are in fact discriminated against in much the same way that the other "protected" statuses are or were, such as in employment and access to public venues, so the same remedy currently provided under law should apply. If we are to be told that we must be accommodating, then so must they.

    Pennsylvania Republicans Push Bill to Make Gun Owners a ‘Protected Class’

    Twenty-four Republican Representatives and one Democrat are pushing legislation that would make Pennsylvania gun owners a “protected class.”
    Gun owners would be protected from discrimination by having their right to keep and bear arms firmly ensconced in the Pennsylvania Human Rights Act (PHRA).



    According to the Pennsylvania Record, the legislation–House Bill 38–“is currently in committee,” but would protect gun-owning employees from employers who want to ban firearms on workplace property. For example, HB 38 would bar such employers from preventing gun owners from keeping firearms in their cars that could be retrieved for self-defense.

    CeaseFirePA’s Shira Goodman opposes the proposed protections for Pennsylvania gun owners, saying, “The Second Amendment right is not overly burdened here, and so why (gun carriers) need to be in a protected class is just a little bit mind-boggling.” She added, “It’s very easy to get a gun here. We’re an open-carry state, except for Philadelphia. It’s not very hard to get a concealed carry license. We don’t have waiting periods. We don’t have registration and license.”


    Goodman made clear that employers ought to be able to ban law-abiding employees from keeping guns for self-defense, intimating that such bans can prevent “workplace violence” and “domestic instances spilling over into workplaces.”

    She did not address the fact that businesses, elementary schools, and universities around the country have witnessed horrendous attacks wherein the law-abiding citizens were sitting ducks; rendered defenseless by anti-gun employers and/or school administrators or boards of regents.
    I think that the Bill of Rights needs to be put in a Protected Class.

    This is NEEDED.

    The amount of pizza delivery driver's I have seen lose their job when their boss found out they carry a firearm to deliver pizzas to the ghetto is ASTONISHINGLY HIGH.
