Please call and thank them for the yes vote - and make sure they know they should have voted yes on ALL the bills.
Are you represented by another Republican or by Frank Burns?
Call and tell them how disappointed and angry you are. Let them know that you will remember next November (2024).

On May 22, the PA State House passed TWO gun safety bills - HB 714 (Universal Background Checks) and HB 1018 (Extreme Risk Protection Orders, red flag law). A bill (HB338) requiring mandatory reporting of lost & stolen guns was defeated by a single vote. A fourth bill (HB731) requiring safe storage of firearms was not brought up for a final vote.
The Background Checks bill (HB714) and the ERPO bill (HB1018) advance to the State Senate, where they will be assigned to a committee. State tuned for how to take action once we learn where the bills are headed.
We are also looking into what is next for the safe storage bill.
