House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 24, 2013 12:24 PM
From: Representative Will Tallman
To: All House members
Subject: Prohibiting the Regulation of Firearms by an Executive Order
I will be introducing a bill within the next two weeks that needs to be acted upon quickly.
This piece of legislation will be a strong assertion of state rights, and firearm owner rights. We as firearm owners are protected under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article I Section 21 of the PA Constitution.
Currently our president is considering several actions by Executive Order that may infringe on our rights. I consider this patently illegal.
With that in mind my legislation will make it illegal to enforce those rules or regulations in the Commonwealth.
This is similar to Representative Metcalf’s proposed legislation except it pertains just to Executive Order and Regulations by a Federal Agency.

Introduced as HB469
