Guns & Politics Teach-in

Last night, a capacity crowd heard from CeaseFire PA Executive Director Shira Goodman and Robin Lasersohn of Delco United for Sensible Gun Policy explain the current state of gun laws in Pennsylvania and the importance of supporting a state law to close the background check loophole for long guns. The speakers also educated attendees on a variety of Pennsylvania state laws related to gun ownership, including open and concealed carry laws, how gun “registration” is actually just the recorded bill of sale (and is not considered registration by the State Supreme Court), and how national serial number tracking by the ATF is still done by paper records.

Attendees were encouraged to attend the upcoming Wear Orange Rally and March for National Gun Violence Awareness Day on June 2 from 6:00-8:00PM in Media, Pennsylvania. The featured speaker will be Congressman Robert Brady.
