Pennsylvania Democrats continue to introduce gun regulatory legislation in the state legislature, and LEAPer Steve Santarsiero continues to be a standout in sponsoring these bills.
In addition to SB 137 and SB 138, submitted with Sen. Santarsiero as the primary sponsor, he has signed on as a cosponsor of SB 198, legislation that would increase the universe of people who are restricted from possessing firearms in the Commonwealth. Among the nineteen new enumerated offenses are:
Posession of a firearm in a court facility
Sexual abuse of children
Disarming a police officer
LEAP Forward is grading all three of these bills, scoring support, and I thank Sen. Santarsiero and the other Democrats sponsoring this legislation. The bill now goes before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
