Pennsylvania: Governor Tom Corbett Signs Pro-Gun Legislation into Law
There isn’t too much going on in the legislation game this time of the year, but it looks like the residents of Pennsylvania saw their Second Amendment rights strengthened a little bit in the form a state preemption bill that was signing into law by Governor Rom Corbett.
According to the NRA-ILA:
Today, Governor Tom Corbett (R) signed into law House Bill 80, the strongest firearms preemption statute in the country, at a public signing ceremony. This critical pro-gun legislation strengthens the state firearms preemption statute to further ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout Pennsylvania and allows citizens to seek legal remedies against localities whose gun control ordinances exceed state law.
A much-needed protection for gun owners in the Keystone State, HB 80 will provide a way for responsible gun owners to hold municipalities accountable and responsible for infringing on our Second Amendment rights. HB 80 takes effect in sixty days.
After four years of hard work, your NRA thanks you for your active involvement and support on this issue. Without your years of phone calls and e-mails to your state legislators, this legislation might never have become a reality.
Please thank Governor Corbett for being a steadfast advocate of your Second Amendment rights and for signing HB 80 into law.
