Pennsylvania: Senselessly keeping gun stores open during an emergency is before Senate

Tipping point for the NRA

This past week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed as bill that prevents the Governor from closing gun stores during a state of emergency. This is exactly the time that they should be closed when panicky people resort to guns to selfishly kill others. This week, the Senate is expected to take a vote on the bill.

The NRA’s strategy to fight gun safety measures

The NRA asked their members to contact their State Senator and ask for support of this bill. Those interested in gun violence prevention should oppose their advocacy by opposing this bill.

The bill

  • House Bill 1747 as amended, designates any firearm related business as life-sustaining businesses which can never be closed. 👎 Dislike

Gun violence prevention action

Please call or email the office of your Pennsylvania State Senator. Urge them to oppose HB 1747 so that gun stores will continue to be treated like any other store during a state of emergency.

Pennsylvania: Active bill prevents any governments entity form closing gun businesses

I received an alert from Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence concerning a Republican bill being pushed through the House this week. An amendment attached prevents gun related businesses from ever being forced to close. Once again, Republicans and the NRA are blinded to any safety concerns of gun violence or the proliferation of a virus during a pandemic.

The bill

  • House Bill 2440 as amended, designates any firearm related business as life-sustaining businesses which can never be closed. 👎 Dislike

Gun violence prevention action

Please call or email the office of your Pennsylvania State Representative and ask for support of HB 2440.
