When is the legislature gonna get off their a$$es and get the preemtion law passed.Should have been done in the Fall.We got rid of Rendell to pass the Castle Doctrine Act. What is the holdup on this one ?
Dang! He backtracked before I knew he even tracked.
Pennsylvania already has a preemption law, much to the chagrin of Philly and Pittsburgh.
This is a classic case of the media creating an issue where none existed. Corbett NEVER said he was considering anything. More info here:

Despite the fact that nearly fifty local governments have enacted illegal gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law, the Pennsylvania Legislature failed to act on important reform legislation that would have addressed this problem.
Senate Bill 273, sponsored by state Senator Richard Alloway (R-33), would have strengthened Pennsylvanias firearms preemption law to further ensure firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.
While this legislative session comes to a disappointing close, enacting firearms preemption legislation in Pennsylvania remains a top priority for the 2013-14 legislative session.
With less than three weeks until Election Day, it is important you ask state candidates what they will doif electedto help ensure the passage of firearms preemption legislation next session.
