    As well as Congressman Lou Barletta, State Reps. Jim Christiana and Rick Saccone have announced.
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ace/611559001/

    Barletta's website should have had an issue page posted BEFORE donations were requested. I'd like to learn more detail about Barletta's 2A stance.

    GOP businessman Paul Addis has also launched a campaign to unseat Casey.

    See:
    GOP businessman launches campaign for U.S. Senate
    http://www.post-gazette.com/news/pol...s/201706080062

    Excerpt:
    "Mr. Addis said he could sit comfortably alongside Pennsylvania’s current Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. Among the positions they shared, he said, was Mr. Toomey’s efforts to expand background checks for firearms. That idea raises flags for some vocal gun owners, but Mr. Addis said: “I believe in the Second Amendment, but I believe that a universal background check would no way retard it.”

    Although the 2018 primary is nearly a year away, Mr. Addis joins a field that already includes two Pittsburgh-area state legislators, Rep. Rick Saccone of Elizabeth and Rep. Jim Christiana of Beaver. Two Congressmen, Mike Kelly of Butler and Lou Barletta of Hazleton, are also pondering a run."

    Currently, out of all the candidates who have announced for Election 2018 for U.S. Senate (PA), PA Rep. Rick Saccone is the strongest proponent of the RKBA. State Rep. Saccone is for permitless carry in PA and he has been an integral part of the 2A rallies held by PA State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe.

    See: http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2017/...t-again-rally/

    Oops, Saccone dropped out of the Senate race to run for the U.S House seat of former Rep. Tim Murphy. Saccone deserves support from 2A supporters.

    U.S, Congressman Mike Kelly is also out of the PA U.S. Senate race.
    See: http://www.post-gazette.com/news/pol...s/201708010099

    Addis sounds like a Toomey clone. IMHO, as it pertains to the 2A and RKBA, Addis is a no-go.

    Here are the websites of those Republicans vying for PA's U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Bob Casey:

    Casey is beatable. A blank do-nothing that had a hard time beating a unknown opponent from Pittsburgh the last time he had to defend his seat. The republican opponent was underfunded and had little charisma. Yet he was catching up to casey due to some very effective political ads which portrayed the do-nothing casey as just that. It was not until the last minute when casey got some funding from the DNC that the sponsoring organization did not think was needed. The DNC thought that their political hack was a shoe-in and they were wrong. Millions of firearm owners in this state could easily defeat this dreg if they bothered to do so.

    I hope you're right, but I'm not willing to bet on his word alone. Don't let up on hammering your Reps and Senators. Not one inch.

    We need to keep hammering them with phone calls, letters, emails, and office visits until we turn the tide and they pass the PRO-GUN bills we expect from them (them being the GOP; Dems are lost and should all lose their seats).

    Obviously, more information, especially public commitments would always be better, but here's an excerpt from a reply that I got from Rep. Barletta to an email I wrote him:

    Dear buckengr,

    Thank you for informing me of your support for Second Amendment rights. Your thoughts on this important matter are most welcome and appreciated.

    As a father and a grandfather, I understand the obligation we have to protect our communities. I believe that the rights of law-abiding citizens to purchase, possess, and use firearms are entirely consistent with that obligation.

    Since the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, many have been demanding more gun control. I am disturbed that some of my colleagues in Congress would rather play for the cameras and clamor for new laws that will do absolutely nothing to keep us safe, rather than have a conversation about commonsense ways we can protect our families and communities. Rather than act solely in the interest of appearing to “just do something,” it would be a better idea to find more effective ways to identify and track individuals who raise suspicions in the first place.

    I believe we must better enforce the laws we already have on the books. For instance, in 2010, nearly 80,000 fugitives and felons attempted to purchase firearms by lying on their required background check, yet the U.S. Department of Justice prosecuted only 44 of those cases. We must address the root causes of gun violence: severe mental health problems, breakdowns in the family, lack of education, and lack of opportunity. And, we should support laws that keep guns out of the possession of criminals, gang members, and terrorists. Reporting and screening requirements must be improved so that we prevent firearms from falling into the hands of people who truly should not have them.

    I understand why, with growing terrorist threats, people want to protect themselves and their families. I hear about their concerns when I’m visiting with you and your neighbors, and at briefings and hearings I attend as a member of the Homeland Security Committee’s Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. I can assure you that I will continue to work to make our nation a safer place by addressing the national security threats from illegal immigration, homegrown terrorists, the Islamic State, Iran, and North Korea, among other bad actors. I firmly believe that this can be achieved without encroaching upon our Second Amendment rights.

    Simply put, I do not support the erosion of our Second Amendment rights, and will never support anything that resembles a national gun registry.

    Rest assured, as a gun owner and a member of the NRA, I will continue to preserve our Second Amendment rights in the 115th Congress. Again, thank you for contacting me and for all that you do for our community in Pennsylvania. Should you have additional comments or questions on this or any other issue, please contact me at my Washington, D.C., Hazleton, Harrisburg, Carlisle, or Sunbury office. I also invite you to sign up for my email newsletter, the Barletta Bulletin, by visiting my website at http://barletta.house.gov.

    All my best,

    Lou Barletta
    Member of Congress
    Overall, I am fairly impressed with his stance. But I'm interested in hearing more about Rep. Rick Saccone as well.

    I find this entire section to be suspect. It sounds as if he wants to prohibit more people. It also sounds like he supports giving homeland security the power to prohibit without due process.

    His use of the term "gun violence" also sets off my spidey sense.

    State Rep. Rick Saccone dropped out of the race for U.S. Senate (PA) and announced he is running for the congressional seat vacated by the resignation of U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy.
