That bill is a NIGHTMARE!!!! Is this just another anti-gun stab or does this idiot have support in the legislature? I don't live in PA, but will try to think of other friends that do and warn them. If something like this passes, the upcoming NRA show in Pittsburgh will be the last time the NRA is welcome in PA.

|Allen G. Kukovich,|
I am Robert Regis Dornin, a 16 year old sophomore in Penn Trafford High School. My future plans are a little uncertain, but I believe that I want to join the United States Marine Corps. That is all beside the point; I am e-mailing you to ask and state my opinion on PA House bill 2451 that is banning “assault weapons.”
Now I may know very little about the process of a bill becoming a law on the state level, due to lack of schooling in that area, but please bear with me. From my understanding, it will be banning the selling, buying, transferring, and owning of the weapons the bill describes, except for those affected by certain circumstances. I would like to know how you are going to vote on this. I personally feel that this is just politics. The features described are completely cosmetic and for the most part do not effect the operation of the weapon. These features just make a rifle/pistol more enjoyable to shoot because of level of comfort they provide. Those same features also make it so civilians can own weapons that look and feel like the ones current militaries issue to their soldiers without them actually owning those weapons. Also on the other end of it, it makes weapons look more appealing cosmetically and more comfortable, so the shooter can make more precise shots. A more precise shot means if he had to defend himself or someone else he could remove a threat without the chance of hitting innocent bystanders. Banning these features would be like banning cars that look fast, or banning the use of comfortable seats.

Dear Representative Feese,
I am writing you on a mater of great concern. It has been brought to my
attention that on March 17, 2004 that a new bill was introduced, and
possibly be placed into effect within sixty days of it's introduction.
House Bill No 2451
I urge you sir to vote down this horrendous atrocity against the sportsmen
I currently own a rifle that falls within this bills writing. I underwent
extensive FBI and ATF back ground checks, finger printing and submitted
passport quality photos, as well as having the Police Chief attest to my
It is quite obvious that the constituents that are behind such a waste of
the Commonwealths tax dollars are greatly misinformed. Perhaps if they were
to focus their efforts on producing incentives for industry that a positive
goal could be obtained.

Dear Mr. Ardrey
Thank-you for your email. I do not believe the Bill will even move out of committee not to mention become law in 60 days.
I have just been made aware that a bill is pending in the PA General Assembly
No 2451, March 17 2004.
I am writing my represenitives on this issue.
Thank you for contacting the NRA-ILA and bringing this article to our attention. Our Pennsylvania State Liaison is aware of the current anti-gun legislation in PA, but please know that no movement is anticipated. Rest assured NRA-ILA will continue to monitor this legislation and contact our members if anything changes.
