Democrat Representative Pushes Sneaky Bill To Limit 2nd Amendment Rights

Share

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

Under the guise of protecting animals, Democrat State Representative Madeleine Dean (D-153) recently circulated a memo to all members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives asking for co-sponsorship on legislation that would prohibit the trade of legal ivory and ivory products in the state of Pennsylvania, according to a bulletin from the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action).

It sounds innocent enough, but the move could severely cramp our Second amendment rights, according to the NRA-ILA. Similar to one sent out two years ago, this proposal would prohibit the sale, importation, purchase, barter or possession with intent to sell legal, antique ivory and ivory products in the Commonwealth – making any

Republican Radio Ad Pressures Casey on Guns and Gorsuch

Share

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

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has aired its first Pennsylvania ad in the election cycle, putting pressure on Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) to support the Second Amendment, according to a report on www.politicspa.com.

The ad urges him to part with “anti-gun liberals” and to support Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, a patriot who believes in Second Amendment rights. “If Bob Casey stands with the anti-gun liberals threatening to block Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, Pennsylvania voters will send someone to Washington who will have their backs,” NRSC spokesman Bob Salera said in the release about the ad. Casey has not said how he will vote on the Gorsuch nomination.

PA Republicans Push To Reverse Obama Law Limiting 2nd Amendment Rights

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

An effort to repeal a last-minute Obama administration regulation involving firearm purchases by “mentally deficient” Social Security recipients is gaining steam in Congress, thanks in part to the support it’s received from Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers thus far, according to a www.pennlive.com article.

“It is excessively broad in that you qualify as a ‘mental deficient’ — according to the Social Security administration’s list of things that are qualifying — for everything down to bulimia,” said Tim Murtaugh, a spokesman with Congressman Lou Barletta’s office. “It can include anxiety and excessive compulsive disorder, it can include bulimia, and so if you are receiving benefits because of that, your name is automatically added to

Two online petitions that every PA gun owner should sign

Share

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

Your personal data is completely safe and secure with two petitions that are built and managed by PA4SP’s Legislative Director.

The first is federal legislation, an issue that President Trump ran on called National Reciprocity. It would require that all states that allow concealed carry recognize licenses from all other states that do.

This makes perfect sense. Your marriage license, which issued by a state is recognized in all others. Your driver’s license, which issued by a state is recognized in all others. But your carry license, issued by a state is recognized by only some, and that list can change on a moment’s notice.

Please sign the petition at PA4SP.org/hr38.

Philly Robbers Get Toasted By Armed Pizza Delivery Man

Share

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

A pair of teen robbers got more than indigestion when they tried to rob a pizza delivery man in southwest Philadelphia. The victim was sent out for a delivery at a home that turned out to be vacant.

When the 36-year-old driver for Chester Family Pizza got there, he was met by two armed teen thugs who announced a robbery and shot the driver in the left side and arm after he tried to escape, according to a report on www.mcall.com. But things quickly bubbled up as the man dropped the pizzas, pulled out a 9 mm handgun and fired several shots at his fleeing assailants.

No arrests have been made.
