    I got the heads up on this pretty late in the game, and I have little more information than what I'm giving here, so I have no idea whether this is something that has "legs", or if it'll be yet another heinous gun bill the sensible people of PA pitch down the toilet.

    House action is scheduled for tomorrow on PA House 2799.

    The word is, it was put up by some of PA's more flaming gun bigots.



    Heinous bits:

    -It defines any carriage (except with a CCW) in Philly as either a felony, or misdemeanor, depending on the carrier's individual circumstances.

    -It defines violation of the above as sufficient grounds for denial of any and all gun rights, without reference to criminal intent

    -Amendments to the bill seek to increase Permit fees to $154, to fund Philadelphia's gun buyback program.

    -And finally, it defines any concealed carry anywhere without a permit as cause for gun rights revokation.

    No time for snail mail, dial 'em up, let your displeasure be known, and roll your Freedom Buddies out of bed.
