A Republican lawmaker in Pennsylvania on Wednesday said he will introduce legislation that would make new federal laws on guns unenforceable within the state's borders, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg, Pa. reported.
In a press release, state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe said passage of his bill, the "Right to Bear Arms Protection Act," will preclude liberals from exploiting "wicked acts of murderers in order advance their senseless gun-grabbing agenda."
“Passage of my legislation will send the message that there will never be additional gun control, anywhere in Pennsylvania,” Metcalfe said. “Whether by White House executive orders, congressional fiat, or judicial activism, we will never allow the left to benefit from the wicked acts of murderers in order advance their senseless gun-grabbing agenda which would only succeed in replacing one of our most sacred personal liberties with the chains of government tyranny.”
Metcalfe said his legislation would prohibit the "enforcement of any new federal registration, restriction or prohibition requirement for privately owned firearms, magazines and ammunition" and require the state to "tercede on behalf of Commonwealth citizens against any federal attempt to register, restrict or ban the purchase or ownership of firearms and firearms accessories which are currently legal products."
