HB2011 Introduced, Provides Relief For Preemption Violations
#1
Pennsylvania HB2011 would allow anyone 'adversely effected' by a local law that is found to be in violation of preemption laws to sue and receive damages.

Quote:A person adversely affected by an ordinance, a resolution, regulation, rule, practice or any other action promulgated or enforced by a county, municipality or township prohibited under subsection (a) or 53 Pa.C.S. § 2962(g) (relating to limitation on municipal powers) may seek
declaratory or injunctive relief and actual damages in an appropriate court

The title scared me. I don't believe it misleading now that I have read the description, but my defense mechanisms immediately took a negative view and assumed the relief would be toward those found violating the law.

This is a watered down version of HB805. Neither will pass because our legislators don't feel the need to put teeth behind their laws unless it is against us helpless citizens...

This is in our NRA-ILA sidebar, but for anyone following this who may have missed it there:


Pennsylvania: House Judiciary Committee to Hear Second Amendment Legislation Next Week

http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-...-week.aspx

Quote:Next Tuesday, March 18, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 60 East Wing, the House Judiciary Committee will be considering two pro-gun pieces of legislation which need your support:

House Bill 921, sponsored by state Representative Tim Krieger (R-57), would transfer background checks for firearms purchases from the Pennsylvania instant check system to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

House Bill 2011, sponsored by state Representative Mark Keller (R-86), would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.

There may be an attempt to amend HB 921 with anti-gun language that would mandate “universal” background checks. The NRA strongly opposes this amendment. Currently, Pennsylvania requires background checks on the private sale and transfer of handguns. This amendment would expand the required background check to include the private sale of ALL firearms, including rifles and shotguns.........................
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.

This bill is currently on the floor but the anti's have filed 124 amendments to try to kill it. It needs support from everyone. Please contact your representatives and ask them to vote for a clean bill.

As of yesterday an agreement was made to remove all but two amendments.

(a) General rule. No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this commonwealth.
Once they are notified in writing of §6120.

Anti- gun Amendment by Rep Steve Santarsiero is to require ALL firearms (used LONG GUNS - shotguns and rifles) transfers to go through a Federal background check with the exception of the current family one that applies to only handguns in PA.

The bill should come up for second reading for amendments early next week

So we gain a theoretical ability to sue municipalities for violating the UFA, and the federal .gov gets a defacto gun registry from PA.

Doesn't seem like we win with this to me....

The amendments have to be voted on and the anti-gun amendment will be voted down from what I have heard from inside HB. The only reason it was allowed to stand was as a compromise to get the other 120 amendments dropped and the bill moving forward again.
