Is PA really safe ground? It is a pretty liberal state.
Outside Philly, Pittsburgh, university towns and their suburbs, not so much.
Philadelphia is liberal. So is Pittsburgh.
All points in between, not so much. Our State House, Senate, and the Governor’s mansion are GOP-controlled, and most of them are fairly conservative GOP types. Some are twitchy, for sure, but we’ll remove them eventually if they mess with our firearm rights.
It’s a gun friendly state, even though we have an anti-gun AG who just got elected.
Our State constitution, Article 1, Section 21:
Right to Bear Arms
The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.
Reservation of Powers in People
To guard against the transgressions of the high powers which we have delegated, we declare that everything in this article is excepted out of the general powers of government and shall forever remain inviolate.
Safe or safer as anywhere else these days, and better than NJ NY CT etc.,
