[PAFOA Alert] PA House Judiciary Committee Hearings on Gun Violence

Fellow Pennsylvania Firearm Owner,

It's come time again for us to send out some alerts about what's going on
in our commonwealth and around the country that affects your rights.

The Pennsylvania House Judiciary Committee has scheduled statewide hearings on the
issue of Gun Violence throughout March and April of 2007.

Our hope is that we can get firearm owners to attend these events so that our voice
can be heard among the sea of voices calling for "reasonable gun control"
like:

"Assault Weapon" Bans: PA House Bill 30
- It didn't stop crime at the federal level, why would it here?

Complete Firearm Registration: PA House Bill 760
- Registration leads to confiscation and PA law has outlawed government firearm
registries for years.

Firearm Ballistics Databases: PA House Bill 277
- They have failed to prevent or solve crime everywhere they've been tried.

Banning all firearms that are not electronically "personalized": PA House
Bill 291
- The only firearms this law would allow you to own don't even exist yet!

(Note: We will cover these bills in depth in an upcoming alert)

We also can't help but notice that all of these hearings are being held in the
big cities and not in any of the rural areas of the commonwealth and that they are
all scheduled during the workweek, during work hours. However we hope that as many
of you as possible will be able to attend the closest event and make it known that
you expect our legislators to abide by the Pennsylvania Constitution and Pennsylvania
State Law.

In the case that you can't make it to these unfortunately located and scheduled
events we urge you to contact the Judiciary Committee with your thoughts:

Thomas R. Caltagirone (Chairman)
106 Irvis Office Bldg.
P.O. Box 202127
Harrisburg, PA 17120-2127

Ron Marsico (Minority Chairman)
218 Ryan Office Bldg.
P.O. Box 202105
Harrisburg, PA 17120-2105

Additionally always remember to contact your legislators regarding these issues.
If you do not know who your legislators are you can find out by visiting our ‘Find
Your Legislators' page located at:

Once again, thank you for being interested and involved in these issues. United
We Stand, Divided We Fall.
