    Done.

    I'm confident my state representative, Valerie Gaydos, will support both Bills. However, like many others here, am skeptical that we'll have enough votes to override the inevitable veto.

    Constitutional Carry Passes PA Senate

    Constitutional Carry and Strengthen Preemption Headed to PA House

    Dear

    I have fabulous news, both Constitutional Carry (SB 565) and the Strengthen Preemption (SB 448) bills were passed by the Pennsylvania Senate late in the evening on Tuesday, November 9th. This is a direct result of all of your hard work in contacting your senators.

    SB 565 passed by a vote of 29-21 and SB 448, 31-19. Find out how your senator voted by following the links and be sure to drop them a note of thanks for voting in favor of passing these bills and your displeasure if they voted against them.

    Now, both bills are headed to the House for consideration.

    All evening, anti-gun Senate Democrats attempted to amend both bills with numerous anti-gun amendments. Many of these "amendments" were standalone bills calling for things like Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, gun-free zones, lost or stolen firearms reporting, waiting periods, and mandatory purchase permits (like our anti-gun neighbor, New Jersey). The good news is that all of these gutting amendments were voted down.

    I want to personally thank the Senate Republican leadership for advancing these two bills and ensuring that the anti-gun amendments were defeated.

    But the fight isn't anywhere over. SB 565 and SB 448 will need to be reported from their House committee and receive a roll-call vote in order to send it to the Governor's desk.

    You may remember that earlier this year, House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-171) promised to run the Senate version of Constitutional Carry, after he stalled Rep. Aaron Bernstine's bill in the House. We need to hold him to that promise.

    That's why I need you to take action right away and send a message to your state representative to support and pass both SB 565 and SB 448. Let's finish out 2021 strong by sending two pro-gun bills to Governor Wolf.

    In Liberty,

    P.S. Please send a message to your state representative to support and pass SB 565 (Constitutional Carry) and SB 448 (Strengthen Preemption). Let's send both of these bills to the Governor's desk

    Done. Might not have enough veto proof votes, but we need to keep ringing the bell at least

    Not worth another thread. Here is the FOAC Emaill with additional information about upcoming bills.

    Dear,

    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: Constitutional Carry (SB 565) and Preemption of Firearms Laws Strengthening (SB 448) 'PASS' in the PA Senate today by a vote of, respectively, 29-21 and 31-19.

    Constitutional Carry has been a focus of FOAC since 2011 and Preemption has been a focus since 2006. One of the important issues to be shown in these votes is the fact that nearly ALL democrats ignored their duty and responsibility AND their Oath of Office in voting against both of these bills. They quite simply MUST be held to account next year at the ballot box for these scandalous and reprehensible positions on citizen safety and our Constitution!

    We want to THANK ALL OF YOU for helping in this tremendous victory in the PA Senate and we want to thank Senator Kim Ward and the Senate Republicans for voting with our rights and safety for every PA citizen!

    We ask that you take a moment to reach out to every one who voted with us today and thank them. The votes taken today on both bills are below for your records and review:

    While it is most likely that Governor Wolf will 'veto' this legislation (as he did to two of FOAC's other bills last session), we mustn't let this deter us from getting votes on these issues and setting the stage for when we have a Governor who will honor his oath of office and our Constitution!

    It*s on to the PA House of Representatives next week!!

    Done but writing to Zabel on pro gun issues is like pissing in the wind.

    I'm not skeptical - I'm confident: We DO NOT have enough votes to override the veto.

    THAT is why it's critical to keep it up and elect right-thinking folks.

    Most importantly - a right-thinking governor.
