Pennsylvania SB 273 is dead for this session. Time has expired and it cannot be resurrected this session.



This legislation would have provided much needed penalties for municipalities that violate gun laws and ignore Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions to the detriment of law abiding gun owners.



Be sure to let your state representatives know that you are very disappointed that Democrat and Republican Leadership did not move this legislation in the 2011-12 session.



Let them know that you hope that they will do something about the leadership problem in the next session so that this and other important pro-freedom legislation will advance.

Rights, not privileges



"No State shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor." --Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 US 105, US Supreme Court, [1943].



The U.S. Supreme Court broadly and unequivocally held that requiring licensing or registration of any constitutional right is itself unconstitutional. --Follett vs. Town of McCormick, S.C., 321 U.S. 573 [1944]







"The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned. [*287] Because the ownership of firearms is constitutionally protected, its regulation is a matter of statewide concern. The constitution does not provide that the right to bear arms shall not be questioned in any part of the commonwealth except Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, where it may be abridged at will, but that it shall not be questioned in any part of the commonwealth."

SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA, 545 Pa. 279; 681 A.2d 152; 1996 Pa. LEXIS 1447, May 1, 1996, ARGUED July 18, 1996, DECIDED
