GOA ALERT: PENNSYLVANIA CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY BILL HB 1412 Good News for Law Abiding Pennsylvania Citizens !! Pennsylvania State Representative Aaron Bernstine (R-10) has introduced HB 1412, Pennsylvania’s “Constitutional Carry” bill. What is Constitutional Carry ? It’s the simple principle that you don’t have to ask the government for permission to carry a firearm for self-defense. Representative Bernstine’s bill would affirm the Constitutional right of every person inside Pennsylvania to keep and bear firearms without a permit, including the right to carry openly or concealed, loaded or unloaded. For those who wish, the bill includes an optional license to carry firearms that will provide reciprocity with any state with which Pennsylvania has an agreement. HB 1412 also eliminates the restrictions on carrying firearms on public streets or public property in Philadelphia. And it removes certain knives from the definition of “offensive weapons.” States that have adopted Constitutional Carry rank among the safest in the nation, as repeatedly demonstrated by states like Maine and Vermont that always rank near the top of the list of safest places. In short, Constitutional Carry would make Pennsylvania safer and freer. But gun owners in the Pennsylvania need to be vocal for Constitutional Carry to become law. So please urge your state senator and representative to support Constitutional Carry -- HB 1412! In Liberty, Dr. Val Finnell Pennsylvania Director Gun Owners of America :smilie flag: .
