What Distinguishes PA4SP From Other 2nd Amendment Organizations?

Pennsylvanians For Self Protection (PA4SP) fills the gap between national gun rights groups like the NRA and GOA and the average PA gun owner’s local community. We organize gun owners in local communities around the state to peacefully oppose any further restrictions on guns and promote trained gun ownership.

We want to work with you to make sure your community respects firearm owners and doesn’t enact policy that would infringe on your rights. We will not align ourselves, advocate or support any rally or group where the predictable outcome may intimidate the average local citizen.

PA4SP promotes the trained, safe use of firearms to protect persons, property, and family. Countless lives are saved by responsible gun owners every year.

Whether you are new to firearms or are a seasoned expert, joining PA4SP is an important step to keeping your rights protected in Pennsylvania.

PA Dems Distort PA4SP Position

In the article below, PA Dems claim that PA4SP supports more guns in school, implying that more guns means more death. That is a an outright lie. Using their logic, we should disarm police in order to get guns off the street!

Our position is: “We support armed guards in school because only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun. Democrats instead, leave our children defenseless as nothing more than targets for psychopaths.”

Pennsylvanians For Self Protection Endorses Lou Barletta for US Senate

(Doylestown, February 16, 2018) – The Board of Directors of Pennsylvanians For Self Protection announces that it has endorsed Congressman Lou Barletta for US Senate.

Mr. Barletta has met with our leadership and has demonstrated that he is committed to protecting the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.

Further, Mr. Barletta is dedicated to supporting the agenda that we the people voted for when we elected Donald J. Trump as President.

We therefore, look forward to working with Mr. Barletta in advancing our Second Amendment rights and in keeping deadly weapons out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and the mentally deficient.

Pennsylvanians For Self Protection is a nonpartisan, non-profit corporation that is dedicated to protecting Second Amendment rights in the Keystone State through legislative activism.



Statement on National Reciprocity Bill

Statement on National Reciprocity Bill as Passed By the US House of Representatives

Tom Campione, Legislative Director offers the following statement.

“Pennsylvanians For Self Protection prefers that the ‘Fix NICS’ bill be stricken from the current National Reciprocity bill as passed By the US House of Representatives because of the lack of ‘due process’ built into the current NICS system and the extreme burden that is currently associated with removal from NICS.

These factors combined with the extremely high NICS error rate are cause for significant concern for the protection of gun owner rights. We therefore request that the Senate strike ‘Fix NICS’ until such time that the above issues are adequately addressed.”

We would also like to address those who are screaming from the mountaintops that ‘Fix NICS’ is a Leftist plot. We ask those folks to take a deep breath and understand that Fix NICS does not add a single class of person to the rolls. Instead, it mandates that federal agencies comply with current law.

So, while the statement that ‘people with parking tickets would now be added to NICS’ is true, they are already prohibited persons and belong on the NICS list. Under current law, they are already fugitives from justice. Anyone fleeing from payment of parking tickets who is buying a gun today must answer that question as ‘yes” on form ATF-4473. The moral of that story is, pay your parking tickets, or work to change the law.

Fix NICS as currently written is limited to classes of individuals who are prohibited under current law [18 U.S. Code § 922 (g) & (n)]. Actual enforcement would result in many individuals being added, but if we don’t like the inclusion of certain classes then we should work to change the underlying law, rather than obstruct enforcement.

Pennsylvanians For Self Protection is a statewide second amendment advocacy group, headquartered in Doylestown, PA.
