Several hundred people attended Tuesday’s rally on gun rights held in Harrisburg.
Scheduled as part of what was billed as Second Amendment Action Day, the event drew several state lawmakers who are currently attempting to push gun rights legislation in the General Assembly.
State Representative Rick Saccone, from Allegheny County, says one of his proposals would eliminate the requirement for concealed weapons licenses in Pennsylvania. Saccone also came out against the Instant Check System, coordinated by the State Police, which runs the background checks on those looking to buy firearms or obtain concealed carry permits.
Representative Tim Krieger, from Westmoreland County, touted his proposal that would keep the State Police from keeping lists of those who purchase firearms.
