Disparity of Force

This petition is to fix a very serious flaw in our Castle Doctrine. Did you know that our stand-your-ground law is conditional, and not universal? It applies within your home or your vehicle, but not necessarily anywhere else.

For example, you can be in an isolated parking lot late at night where you are approached by perhaps three males who most certainly are about to assault you. Even if you order them to stop and they keep coming toward you, under current law, you must retreat and cannot “stand-your-ground” unless they display a lethal weapon. 18 Pa.C.S. 505(b)2.3

National Reciprocity, Sign The Petition

Pennsylvania firearm owners, please sign the petition to support National reciprocity.

The bill (here) says:

  • Any state that allows concealed carry must recognize all others that also allow it, without limitation
  • States that do not allow concealed carry are not forced to

PA has 18 congressional districts and 2 senators. Our goal is to get 20 “Yea” votes. Will we get Casey and the other far left democrats? Probably not. But we need to make it painful for them to vote ‘no’. We think we can get 5000 petitions signed. Since the system faxes the congressman and 2 senators for each signer, that’s 15000 faxes. If any one lawmaker refuses to vote yes, we put out the call to the 5000 signers to converge on his office. If 15% show up, we have a major news event.

Time To Start Work On Reciprocity

Pennsylvanians For Self Protection welcomes President Donald J. Trump. We certainly understand the amount of work ahead, dismantling the obstacles and roadblocks put in place by prior administrations. We ask that within the next few months, you begin to put pressure on Congress to pass a National Reciprocity bill. HB 38 is simple, straight forward, and well done. Please tell leadership to get it moving.

Have gun, will travel: Groups push for states to honor concealed-carry laws

Gun-rights groups have high hopes for a new bill looking to grant “national reciprocity” for Americans with concealed firearm permits, introduced just as President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office.

The bill, put forward in the new Congress last week by Rep. Richard Hudson, R-N.C., would allow gun owners with a state-issued concealed-carry license to have that license recognized in any other state that allows concealed carry. This also would apply to states that recognize so-called “constitutional carry” where a license is not required for a concealed handgun.
