The Pennsylvania Second Amendment Preservation act (HB 357) has been sitting idle in the House Judiciary Committee. Although it can still move forward, it’s going to need additional support on a local level to succeed.
What has been most lacking – beyond political courage in the House – is strong grassroots organization behind the bill well in advance.
Gilberton Chief of Police Mark Kessler has taken the lead, introducing a local ordinance directing the town to “adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of any federal, state or local acts, laws, orders, rules, or regulations in violation of the Second Amendment.” This is a great start, and should be replicated around the state
In order to take this to the next level and get a victory, your action is needed right now. Starting today, and all the way through the rest of the year, local governments around the state need to be pressed to take a similar action – passing legislation in support of the right to keep and bear arms locally. And at the same time, calling on the state legislature to do the same. When the state is blanketed with local communities willing to nullify violations of the Second Amendment, the state legislature will be on notice. Do your job, or else.
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
1. Contact your local legislators – County, City, Town - and urge them to introduce an ordinance in support of the Second Amendment.

2. Become a local leader. If you’re dedicated to the right and keep and bear arms, we’ll provide you with the tools you need to not only act on your own, but to organize and lead others to help support these efforts.Details
