Subject: [PAFOA Update] House Bill 641. Pulled from consideration by Judiciary Committe

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:

It is important now that firearm owners do two things:

1) Contact your representatives and politely, but strongly voice your support for HB641. If you do not know who your representatives are you can find our by visiting:

2) Contact Representative Caltagirone's office and politely voice your extreme displeasure with his capitulation to the minority members of the House by withdrawing HB641 from consideration. His contact information is as follows:

106 Irvis Office Building
PO Box 202127
Harrisburg, PA 17120-2127
(717) 787-3525
Fax: (717) 772-5401

As always this issue can be discussed on our message boards at: ([PAFOA Alert] Judiciary Committe Action: HB 641 (Castle Doctrine))
