Representative Caltagirone, head of the House Judiciary Committee gave in to pressure from certain Democratic members of the House yesterday and opted to pull HB641 from consideration by the committee today as previously reported.
From the reports we've heard it appears as though the usual suspects from Philadelphia involved in constantly trying to infringe on our right to keep and bear arms have thrown yet another temper tantrum and threatened to take their ball and go home if this legislation was considered.
The good news is that it appears Representative Cappelli is attempting to force the issue by adding HB641 as an amendment to Senate Bill 436 in an attempt to have the bill debated.
Please see Representative Cappelli's website for in depth information on his actions regarding this bill:
