HARRISBURG, Oct. 16, 2014 - State Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Phila.) today released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted to amend and pass House Bill 80 to help the National Rifle Association:
“It’s telling that Senate Republicans have decided to further the NRA’s agenda today by passing a specially crafted piece of legislation that would allow the organization to sue municipalities over their local gun laws.
“It’s good to once again stand with State Representative John Taylor, who is sponsoring similar legislation in the House, and Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to advocate for the passage of legislation that will set a mandatory minimum sentence for illegally carrying a gun in Philadelphia,” said Senator Larry Farnese.
