PA: Pass HB 1066 to Strengthen Preemption
Pass HB 1066 and Hold Local Governments Accountable!
As you know, the Pittsburgh Mayor and City Council violated Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law by passing three illegal gun control ordinances in April of 2019. But the strategy of the gun-grabbers is far more insidious.
Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is on a national crusade to bankrupt you, the law-abiding gun owner, by forcing you to spend thousands of dollars in legal fees to fight these blatantly illegal ordinances.
And while you are scraping change to find an attorney to defend yourself, these rogue cities and municipalities are getting free help from billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety.
Make no mistake about it, Bill Peduto’s agenda is to end firearms preemption through a financial “war of attrition” against your Second Amendment rights.
But there is good news: The House Judiciary Committee recently reported HB 1066, a bill that will hold these rogue municipalities accountable.
Representative Mark Keller’s (R-86) bill provides law-abiding citizens the ability to recover damages, reasonable attorney fees, and costs if a court finds that a local ordinance violates the state firearms preemption law (Title 18 §6120).
Not only that, but the bill allows membership organizations, like GOA, to sue on your behalf.
Don’t allow your gun rights to be held at the mercy of Everytown and their political henchmen.
Contact your state representative today (see above) and urge him or her to pass HB 1066 without amendment.
