PA Lawmakers: Don't Obey Federal Laws

A group of Pennsylvania lawmakers have introduced a bill, HB 357, that states:


Providing that any Federal law which attempts to register, restrict or ban a firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm in this Commonwealth shall be unenforceable in this Commonwealth; and imposing penalties.
It was introduced in January, was referred to the Judiciary Committee and is still sitting there.  These are the loons who sponsored or co-sponsored this bill:


METCALFE, BAKER, BLOOM, BROOKS, CAUSER, CLYMER, EVERETT, GABLER, GROVE, HAHN, C. HARRIS, HESS, HICKERNELL, KAUFFMAN, F. KELLER, M. K. KELLER, KNOWLES, KRIEGER, MAJOR, MILLARD, MILLER, MOUL, MULLERY, PYLE, SACCONE, SANKEY, STEVENSON, TALLMAN, CUTLER, ROAE, ROCK, MALONEY, ELLIS,
MUSTIO, REESE, BENNINGHOFF, EMRICK, METZGAR, JAMES, EVANKOVICH, PAYNE, SWANGER, READSHAW, RAPP, DENLINGER, OBERLANDER, S. H. SMITH, DUNBAR, SAYLOR, MARSHALL, REED, SCAVELLO, MCGINNIS AND LUCAS

Think of all the things our state legislature could be doing if they weren't taking up time with bills like this.

Simply check the Pennsylvania Constitution: "The right of the citizens to bear arms in defence of themselves and the State shall not be questioned. Art. 1, § 21"

The post title is misleading.

This is not about PA lawmakers disobeying Federal laws. It is about a Federal intrusion on our Commonwealth which tramples on Pennsylvania's Constitution. If folks don't like the Pennsylvania Constitution, it can be amended. But our Pennsylvania Constitution cannot be ignored and steamrollered by a Federal Government that seems to be growing more powerful by the day.
