PA4SP addresses PA SB Bill 383 (Armed School Employees)

Pennsylvanians for Self Protection (PA4SP) was founded to counteract the media/progressive gun control hype after the Sandy Hook school shooting and to protect our Second Amendment and Pennsylvania constitutional right to bear arms for self protection. We had concluded that the main targets of these cowardly despicable acts of violence are “soft targets” like schools that have no formidable method of defense. Tragically this has been factually substantiated many times over since Columbine and Sandy Hook. We strongly endorse the principle that the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun (or any deadly weapon) is by a good guy with a gun. Moreover, we believe that broadcasting the presence of stealth armed persons will discourage an attack as demonstrated by Air Marshalls on airlines.

Consequently, we have taken the following position on PA SB 383 which permits the arming of trained and armed school personnel on a voluntary basis:

“Pennsylvanians for Self Protection (PA4SP) fully supports the ability of trained school employees to carry concealed firearms in schools for the purpose of protecting students and employees. We generally approve of PA SB 383, but reserve full endorsement until the final legislative bill is completed. Our main concern with the current bill is the level of stipulated disclosure required for the above mentioned trained concealed carry employees.”
