Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane as well as several lawmakers on both sides of the aisle pushing to pass House Bill 1010.  The bill requires background checks for all gun purchases made in Pennsylvania.  The bill was introduced by Democrat Steven Santarsiero from Bucks County.  And would require background checks to be done for all gun purchases.  No time table has been set for when the house will vote on this bill.

    Just watched the evening news …not Happy!!! Why is it whenever fox has a report on the gun law changes you never show anything but the anti side of the issues. I have never seen anything or anyone on the news talking pro gun.. Why is that????. I Know it is not because they think we are all anti gun.. I think if u poll all the people instead of just a few selected before the poll u would find a big difference in the stats….Thanx for letting me vent. MIke

      A poll is just a sample. A completely unbiased random sample if scientific. Unbiased means you don't hang out in front of a gun range and ask questions nor at a vigil for a violence victim.

      Fox43 might be reporting on the anti because the momentum is to change what exists now toward the anti side. The pro side has a clear platform and the anti side is attempting to make changes of the status quo without knowing exactly which way to go with it. Unlike most pro beliefs, the anti side is not attempting to ban ownership of firearms or overturn the 2nd Amendment.
