PA Politician: We Need A State Firearm
How in the world has Pennsylvania gotten along these hundreds of years without an Official State Firearm?
Sen. Pat Browne, R-Lehigh County, is sponsoring a bill that would designate the Pennsylvania Long Rifle as the state’s official firearm. Pennsylvania would become the first state in the country to have a state gun, according to the National Rifle Association. To Browne and his supporters, the measure is a celebration of history and a decidedly Pennsylvanian contribution toward America’s independence. However, opponents say the idea of designating a state firearm is unthinkable, especially since Pennsylvania cities are scarred by gun-related crimes.Just consider it his tribute to Killadelphia.
