PA Bill Would Make Loaded Guns In Vehicles Illegal, Because It’s “Common Sense”
By Dan Zimmerman via TTAG
“H.B. 2669 would prohibit a person from carrying a loaded firearm in any vehicle, with the exception of firearms related to game hunting, law enforcement, military personnel or security drivers. A person who is found carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle would be charged with a misdemeanor for a first offense, and a first-degree misdemeanor for a second or subsequent offense.”
This “common sense gun safety measure” will no doubt save countless lives on the Keystone State’s highways and byways.
“It might seem like a simple change, but studies show that drivers who have a firearm in their vehicle may be more prone to anger and more likely to engage in aggressive driving than those who did not have a gun … I and most gun safety proponents still protect Second Amendment rights and commonsense gun safety measures.,” Comitta said.
Funny, but proximity to a firearm has never had an effect on our state of mind, let alone the way we drive.
Like most anti-gun legislators, Comitta is probably blissfully unaware of how quickly a driver can slip a magazine into an unloaded semi-automatic handgun. And it’s a good thing, too, because if she manages to get her bill signed into law, law-abiding Pennsylvanians — like all Americans — use their firearms far more often to defend themselves and their families than they do to commit crimes.
For some reason, though, #gunsense pols like Comitta never seem to mention all of those defensive gun uses. Wonder why?
