PA: Let’s Move Pro-Gun Bills in the PA Senate
Written by Dr. Val Finnell, Pennsylvania GOA Director Published: 15 September 2021
On September 20th, GOA dozens of grassroots activists will be in Harrisburg for Gun Owners Lobby Day (G.O.L.D.) to get three bills passed in the PA Senate: Constitutional Carry (SB 565), the Right to Bear Arms Protection Act (SB 624), and Strengthen Preemption (HB 979).
These activists need support from GOA advocates statewide to maximize their impact. That’s why I need you to send a message to your state senator right away to pass these three bills:
- SB 565 (Dush) — Constitutional Carry. This bill was reported by the Senate Judiciary Committee right before the summer break in July. We want a floor vote in the Senate as soon as possible. Once passed, it will move to the House where House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-171) has promised to bring it up for a vote. Let’s hold him to that promise by giving him the Senate bill.
- SB 624 (Mastriano) — Right to Bear Arms Protection Act. The bill is currently stuck in the Senate State Government Committee chaired by Senator Dave Argall (R-29).
- HB 979 (Dowling) — Strengthen Preemption. The bill passed the House and is sitting in the Senate Judiciary Committee awaiting action.
So, please fill out the form above to send a message to your state senator to pass these three bills. And if you are coming to G.O.L.D., I look forward to seeing you in Harrisburg on Monday, September 20th.
