Commonwealth’s “Top Lawyer” Turns Against Pennsylvania Citizens

Share

 

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Project Tea Party-Second Amendment Committee

Pennsylvania’s turncoat Democrat Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who is supposed to enforce the law, is instead trying to gut one of our most important Constitution rights: the Second Amendment. Shapiro has joined his comrades from more than a dozen other states in an ill-advised effort to get Congress to abandon legislation, backed by the National Rifle Association, which would further secure our rights by allowing concealed-carry gun permits issued in one state to be valid in all states.

The turncoat “top prosecutors” from left-wing states including New York, Iowa and California sent a letter to congressional leaders in both parties falsely warning that federal reciprocity proposals being debated on Capitol Hill “will lead to the death of police officers and civilians, the proliferation of gun traffickers, and acts of terrorism and other mass violence,” according to a pennlive.com report.

“With the worst shooting in American history fresh in our memory, we urge you and your colleagues to reject these ill-conceived bills,” write the attorneys general in a letter organized by elitist New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, pennlive.com notes.

The fresh warning comes as the gun lobby, emboldened by complete Republican control of Washington, continues to press for looser gun restrictions. Following the recent Las Vegas mass shooting by a deranged man, momentum appears to be slowing for a separate federal measure that would outlaw devices, known as “bump stocks,” which allowed the Las Vegas shooter’s semi-automatic weapons to fire rounds marginally faster. But the National Rifle Association insists that the recent shooting has not softened its support for any its 2017 legislative priorities, which include legislation that would make it easier to buy gun silencers.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 already has more than 200 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and “remains the NRA’s top legislative priority,” says Jennifer Baker, a spokeswoman for the NRA’s lobbying arm. The measure, if approved by Congress, would allow people with concealed-carry gun permits in one state to bring their guns into any other, regardless of whether that state has tougher requirements for obtaining permits.

Baker said the current “patchwork of state and local laws” creates confusion that “often leads to law-abiding gun owners running afoul of the law when they exercise their right to self-protection while traveling or temporarily living away from home,” according to the pennlive.com article.

Supporters argue, for example, that the legislation would help protect truck drivers and women traveling across state lines alone at night.

Beyond the Democratic attorneys general, critics of enhancing our rights also include gun control groups such as Everytown for Gun Safety, which is backed by billionaire elitist and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who vowed earlier in the year to spend “what it takes” to defeat the legislation.

The Democrat attorney generals argue that concealed-carry reciprocity would somehow empower gun traffickers, terrorists and other criminals—who don’t obey the law anyway. And they say it would somehow help criminals avoid permit requirements altogether should they assert residence in one of the 12 states that allow gun owners to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. This is despite the fact that Islamic terrorists and other criminals are not likely to care whether or not they actually have a carry permit when they carry out their attacks.

The letters’ authors also include attorneys general from Massachusetts, Oregon, Virginia, Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Connecticut, New Mexico, North Carolina and the District of Columbia.

Predictably enough, Democrat Senator Bob Casey used the Las Vegas tragedy to call for more restrictions on our Second Amendment rights, demanding a limit on “the size and capacity of magazines;” and he wants to put in place universal background checks that would only ensnare law-abiding individuals.
