It doesn't surprise me that the statute ignores Article 8, section 1 of the Pennsylvania constitution. The legislature and courts also ignore Article 1, Section 21 which states: "The right of the citizen to bear arms in the defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned
It seems like the Pa. constitution is just another worthless piece of paper.

You're correct Russ. Everytime we write or speak with politicians, candidates - and indeed even fellow citizen voters - we must focus attention on matters related to constitutional authority for proposed or existing laws. Only then can we expect these charters to be respected.
