Pennsylvania House Committee Will Take Up Pre-Emption Measure Today

posted on April 19, 2017

Critical firearm pre-emption legislation is being considered in Pennsylvania’s House Judiciary Committee today.

HB 671 would further clarify existing law to ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the Keystone State. Prior pre-emption legislation was passed in 2014, but was struck down by the state Supreme Court last year for violating the state’s “single subject” rule for legislative process.

As NRA-ILA pointed out in a recent grassroots alert, firearms pre-emption was enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature over three decades ago to avoid the possibility of a complex patchwork of regulations across the state,  which can make it difficult for responsible firearm owners to ensure they are following the law. However, in recent years many local governments have enacted gun control ordinances in violation of this current law.
