Philadelphia lawmakers, others call on state Senate to act on gun safety measures passed by House

(Apr 04, 2024)

PHILADELPHIA, April 4 – Members of the Philadelphia House Delegation today joined gun safety advocates to call on the state Senate to take up legislation ( H.B. 777 ) passed by the House last week that aims to eliminate the proliferation of “ghost guns” in Pennsylvania and crack down on those who buy or sell them, along with other gun reform bills passed by the House in this legislative session. The bill, sponsored by state Reps. Morgan Cephas and Malcolm Kenyatta, both D-Phila., would make selling or purchasing a firearm or firearm parts without serial numbers a felony. Cephas said these untraceable firearms are a main driver of crime, especially in Philadelphia. “Ghost guns are far too easily obtainable in Philadelphia, leading to day-to-day gun violence that has no end,” Cephas said. “For far too long, the Pennsylvania legislature has been singularly focused on what we do after crimes are committed with guns, rather than the unfettered access to these deadly, untraceable weapons. I am thankful that the House, under our new Democratic majority, moved this commonsense legislation to the Senate and now call on our state senators to give it the attention and consideration it deserves.” House Speaker Joanna McClinton noted the other gun safety bills sent over to the Senate in addition to H.B. 777, including legislation that would allow for the temporary removal of firearms from Read more

 

Making voting easier!

(Apr 03, 2024)

Voting is one of our most valuable rights as Americans -- and our democracy works best when people exercise that right and have their voices heard in our elections. Protecting your voting rights has always been one of my top priorities as a legislator. While some people champion measures that would make it harder to vote, especially in our urban communities, my colleagues and I have always opposed these bills. In fact, I recently introduced a measure that would make voting easier and more convenient by allowing in-person early voting and same-day voter registration in Pennsylvania. These measures would empower our state’s voters. Specifically, my legislation would allow lawfully registered Pennsylvania voters to vote early in-person during the two weeks leading up to Election Day. It would also allow an eligible Pennsylvanian to register to vote at polling locations on Election Day. Early voting would be helpful for busy people who may have demanding work schedules or dynamic family responsibilities to vote in-person at a time that is most convenient for them. It would also relieve congestion at busy polling places and help our seniors, especially those who use wheelchairs or walkers, by allowing more time to accommodate their needs. By allowing same-day registration, our neighbors could register to vote on the day when it is most relevant and convenient – Election Day. Plus, it would allow for real-time corrections to Read more
