PA Bill Would Make Loaded Guns In Vehicles Illegal, Because It’s “Common Sense”

By Dan Zimmerman via TTAG Pennsylvania State Representative Carolyn Comitta wants to do something about gun owners road rage in her state. Her solution: outlaw loaded firearms in vehicles.
“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?
