I just read Elections? You wanna talk elections? at philly.com. It got me thinking; after the recent gubernatorial race in Virginia [where pro-gun control candidate Terry McAuliffe eeked-out a victory over pro-gun Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli II] could the same thing happen in Pennsylvania? I decided to head over to the website of Democratic front-runner Allyson Schwartz and take a look at firearms-related bills that she’s either sponsored or cosponsored and hooolleee shit! Schwartz has her name attached to house incarnations of just about every infringement thrown around by the civilian disarmament industrial complex, from “Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act (H.R. 138), which would bar the sale or gift of large-capacity ammunition feeding devices” to “The NRA Members’ Gun Safety Act (H.R. 21), which seeks to implement five common sense gun safety reforms that polling shows are supported by at least 63 percent of NRA members.” Does this signal the potential for dark times in Pennsylvania?
