Yesterday, the legislature finally put the big bow on its gift to the NRA and passed the special standing legislation we’ve been fighting all session. It took them extra session days for the Senate and House, and several different vehicles and procedural maneuvers, but they finally passed this bill, which is very likely unconstitutional.
So, now it heads to Governor Corbett’s desk. We know what he plans to do, but let’s tell him what we think about that. Send him a message asking him to stand up for Pennsylvanians, not the gun lobby.
We know how hard you worked, and believe us, it made a difference. The legislators know we’re watching them, and we know they heard us. This is the time to redouble our efforts, and make sure that all those folks that want to head back to Harrisburg next year explain their votes in these last few weeks. Ask them why serving the gun lobby was a priority. Ask them what happened to expanding background checks. And remind them who they work for — YOU.
Thanks for all you do.
