Several states have already passed legislation banning the Feds from enforcing unconstitutional gun laws. SB 624, a Pennsylvania Bill introduced by lawmakers has proposed that very thing for the state.
A bill unveiled on Wednesday would effectively make Pennsylvania a Second Amendment sanctuary state by barring state officials from cooperating with any federal effort to curtail gun rights.
Senate Bill 624 was authored by state Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Franklin, who was among those at the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection as Congress was voting to certify the Electoral College vote declaring Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
Mastriano said that the legislation was inspired by Biden’s comment last month that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” as well as by efforts by the Biden administration to curtail gun rights.
“For these words to be uttered by the commander-in-chief of the free world is very disconcerting,” Mastriano said, adding: “Dangerous times indeed.”Tribune Democrat

Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is a giant mixing pot of red and blue. Their governor is a Democrat, but the House and Senate both have Republican majorities. According to Bearing Arms, it is unlikely that Wolf’s veto can be overridden. That presupposes that they can get this to pass the legislature, which is by no means a done deal. SB 624 may have little chance of passage.
…Gov. Tom Wolf–an anti-gun Democrat–is likely to veto the bill. That means the legislature would need to override his veto. I just don’t see them having the votes for it…
Pennsylvania has a rich gun culture. It’s possible that Wolf won his election with the help of many gun owners who trusted the legislature to keep him in check. By forcing him to make anti-gun actions, it’s a reminder to those gun owners that Wolf isn’t their friend. He’s another anti-gunner with delusions of adequacy.

Numerous other states have already made their stand. Whether Pennsylvania follows is anyone’s guess. Regardless, SB 624 is not “terrible legislation.” It’s about the absolute right of every American to keep and bear arms, whether Biden thinks differently or not.
