Firearms Pre-emption Legislation On The Move In Pennsylvania

posted on September 22, 2016

On Monday, legislation that would make critical changes to enhance Pennsylvania’s firearm pre-emption law passed the House Judiciary Committee with a 21-6 vote. HB 2258 will now go to the House floor for consideration.

According to NRA-ILA, HB 2258, sponsored by Republican state Rep. Mark Keller, would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearm pre-emption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are uniform throughout the state. Earlier this year, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court struck down ACT 192—Firearm Pre-emption Legislation—for violation of the “single subject” rule for legislative process. HB 2258, if again enacted into law, would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms pre-emption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.

Gun owners continue to be unduly burdened by local ordinances which violate the current state firearm pre-emption law. Citizens with no criminal intent should not be placed in jeopardy of running afoul of local restrictions they don’t even know exist simply because they have crossed from one municipality to another.
