Pennsylvania RTKBA Rally Set For Monday

posted on May 17, 2017

Since 2006, Pennsylvania gun owners and Second Amendment supporters have been gathering annually at the state capitol in Harrisburg to send a message to legislators that gun control has no place in the commonwealth. The 11th-annual Right to Keep and Bear Arms Rally—hosted by NRA and other pro-gun groups across the state—is scheduled for next Monday, May 22.

The 2A Rally has been credited with improvements and protections such as strengthening state pre-emption laws, getting Castle Doctrine enacted, prohibiting the confiscation of firearms in emergency situations and protecting hunters’ right to carry a self-defense firearm when in the field. Speakers for this year’s event include Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, Rep. Mike Kelly, Dr. John R. Lott Jr., Attorney Josh Prince and gun-rights activist Kim Stolfer.

The rally will begin inside the Capitol at 10 a.m. Attendees are asked to visit their legislators following the gathering to discuss Second Amendment-related legislation.
