Schweyer Frustrated with Lack of Gun Safety Reform

Pa. state Rep. Peter Schweyer is frustrated with the way his GOP colleagues are choosing to ignore the public’s call for sensible gun safety reform. Most notably, his legislation which would have raised the legal age to purchase an assault riffle from 18 to 21 was gutted by the House Judiciary Committee. The entire language of House Bill 717 was replaced with unrelated language that would remove some existing requirements for handgun background checks.
