If someone breaks into your home, you can fatally shoot the intruder under the state’s “castle doctrine,” according to law enforcement officials who spoke to hundreds of citizens at the Luzerne Borough fire hall during a recent seminar on the laws and regulations pertaining to guns and the use of force in Pennsylvania, according to a report on citizensvoice.com.

If someone attacks you on the street with a lethal weapon, you can use deadly force in most cases under the law’s newer “stand your ground” provision. Open carry is legal in Pennsylvania, but private businesses can ban the practice if they choose, according to Luzerne

Commonwealth’s “Top Lawyer” Turns Against Pennsylvania Citizens

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

Two New Tidbits You Can Tell Gun-Grabbers

The first one: People who hate America and the Second Amendment are fond of saying that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens somehow leads to more crime. Even though there’s not a shred of proof behind this statement, the failing Fake News “media” like the NY Times, Washington Post and other rags endlessly parrot this lie.

Maybe they should visit some areas in Pennsylvania, like McKean County, along with other local regions that have consistently seen a rise in conceal permit ownership throughout the last decade. According to statistics, gun-related crimes in McKean County are among the lowest in the state as well as the nation.

According to statistics done by

DWI Conviction Bars Man From Gun Ownership, Says Pa. Court

Richard Hamborsky’s crime had nothing to do with pulling a trigger, but his drunken-driving conviction still bars him from owning a gun, a Commonwealth Court panel ruled, according to a www.pennlive.com article.

The 60-year-old Uniontown man was turned down when he tried to buy a firearm because his 2011 DUI conviction—his second for drunken driving—was graded as a first-degree misdemeanor. Although Hamborsky was only sentenced to 30 days in the Greene County Prison, plus 2 3/4 years on probation, a first-degree misdemeanor conviction can carry penalties of up to 5 years in prison in Pennsylvania. Thus his attempt to buy a gun was shot down by federal law, which bars anyone

Gun Control Democrats Indicted on Corruption Charges

The many Patriots who fondly remember President Ronald Reagan will probably smile when they recall one his favorite sayings, “There they go again.” The phrase was usually directed at Democrats who were engaged in a foolish maneuver.

The Gipper, a champion of Second Amendment rights, would surely be saying that right now, after learning that two Pennsylvania city politicians — one a current member of Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, no less, and one a former member—have been charged with violations of federal public corruption laws.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office named Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and former Reading Mayor Vaughn Spencer in charging documents after multi-year investigations, the Justice Department announced this week,
