PA: Urge Senator Lisa Baker to “Hold the Line” on Gun Control
By Val Finnell
Urge Senator Baker to Kill Anti-Gun Bills in the Senate Judiciary Committee
As of today, the 2023-2024 Pennsylvania Legislative Session has begun. Already, GOA is tracking over 40 pieces of gun-related legislation and most of these are gun control bills filed by Philadelphia and Pittsburgh anti-gun Democrats.
Senator Lisa Baker
What makes matters concerning is that the House will soon be in control of the Democrats, led by Representative Joanna McClinton (D-191). McClinton will attempt to run a slate of draconian gun control bills such as Red Flag Gun Confiscation Orders, semi-automatic weapons bans, mandatory licensing, and universal background check registration schemes (just to name a few).
And with Josh Shapiro as our new Governor, it’s a guarantee that these bills will get signed into law if they also pass the Senate.
The silver lining in this cloud is that the PA Senate is still in Republican control. The firewall will be Senator Lisa Baker (R-20) who chairs the crucial Senate Judiciary Committee where virtually all these bills would land.
As a constituent of Senator Baker’s, I need your help to ensure that she holds the line and kills all gun control bills referred to her committee.
Don’t be fooled. The pressure will be enormous on Senator
