    Pennsylvania Governor Signs Important Pro-Gun Bill into Law!

    Friday, October 17, 2008


    "Today, Friday, October 17, Governor Ed Rendell (D) signed House Bill 1845 into effect. HB1845 is an omnibus legislative package that contains a number of pro-gun provisions for Pennsylvania gun owners. Among the provisions was an “Emergency Powers” reform measure prohibiting any government agency from confiscating firearms during a state of emergency, such as occurred in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

    Other important provisions include:

    * establishing the lawful carry of a concealed firearm in state parks;
    * funding for the acclaimed “Don’t Lie For The Other Guy” program administered by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF); and,
    * an emergency permitting system for concealed carry licenses for individuals who are under immediate threat.

    Thank you to all of the NRA members who took action in support of this important legislation. Without you, this victory would not have been possible."

    I am quite happy about this. I was at the gun rally in the capital on the day they passed this bill in the house. It's good to see it as law now... now we just need a full flegged Castle Doctrine, not this loose group of laws that are quasi Castle Doctrine.

    Now this raises an issue I read on another forum about Federal Parks. Any word on the legalities of that? I know that in Federal Forests the state law generally presides over federal law, but what about parks?

    Is the "Don't Lie for the Other Guy" a program to counter "Snitches Get Stitches"?

    Smart ploy if it is...just curious

    Great move for the folks in PA. Maybe National Parks will follow, or have I missed that?

    WOW!! that is fantastic news. I have avoided taking my kids to parks that have lots of great trails, as I couldn't carry...and had little means to defend myself and kids while out if something should happen. Looks like I will be able to shortly.

    I am SHOCKED it was Rendell that actually signed it. A nice surprise for the day. I think I'll send him a thank you note.

    Nothing mentioned about this in any Philly newspapers or other media.

    from what i understand, most national parks go by the laws in whatever state they're in. so, in PA, that might mean that carry in national parks will be permitted as well.

    don't quote me, though; i'm not a lawyer.


    but i did stay at a Holliday Inn last night....

    Carry in National Parks Still Illegal

    They are talking about making it legal to carry in National Parks in states that allow carry in State Parks. This is not the law yet. The feds are still looking at it. I wouldn't hold my breath. I figure they are waiting till after the election. If McCain gets elected we have a chance. If Obama gets elected it will never happen. That is my opinion on the matter.

    Gob Smacked!

    I'm genuinely surprised. Gov Rendell is a hard-core, long-term anti-gunner. It's amazing that I'll be able to carry in so many places, I'm stuffed between a bunch of PA state parks, and spend a lot of time on the trails, streams, and reservoirs. Good news indeed!

    he's anti gun; he also wants to be reelected. the vote was unanimous in the House and the Senate; what chance was there of him not signing it?
