We’ve known from the start that Act 192 was a bullying tactic from the greedy gun lobby focused on suing our towns and cities. The threatening letters and lawsuits have begun, as the gun lobby takes aim at our cities.
But now they’re taking it to a new level.
Some of the cities that are being sued have set up legal defense funds to ask for help from citizens to fight back–pretty standard stuff. But now the gun lobby wants local district attorneys to prosecute PA citizens who contribute to legal defense funds. That’s right — those gun bullies are claiming that contributing to a city’s legal defense fund is somehow criminal activity!
It’s plain to see what’s happening. When you empower bullies, they turn into monsters — and become enraged when anyone challenges them. They are so afraid that Act 192 is going to be struck down that they are rushing to bully, threaten and sue anyone who tries to stand up for PA cities. Well, we won’t back down and we won’t be bullied.
But our legislators in Harrisburg need to know the impact of their last minute, late night gift to the gun lobby. Will you take a minute and make sure your legislator knows what that vote set in motion and the monster it unleashed?
