Tom Wolf on Gun Control

 

 


Allow for additional Sundays during hunting season

SB147: An Act amending Title 34 (Game) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes

NRA-ILA press release: Senate Bill 147 would expand opportunities for Pennsylvania hunters by providing for three additional days of hunting on Sundays during the season. Many hunters are prevented from introducing their children or friends to hunting because it is difficult to find time and opportunities outside of the work or school week.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 36-14-0 on Jun/29/19; Passed House 144-54-5 on Oct/30/19; Signed by Governor Tom Wolf on Nov/27/19

Scored 79% on CeaseFire Pennsylvania survey

Katie McGinty and Allyson Schwartz scored the highest ratings in candidate ratings released Monday by gun-control advocacy group CeaseFire Pennsylvania, while Tom Wolf came in last. The group rated the candidates on their support for policies including: McGinty & Schwartz scored 100% by agreeing with every CeaseFire Pennsylvania stance. Wolf lost points for some answers, scoring 79% (supporting 15 of 19.)

"By unequivocally supporting every proposal, Katie McGinty and Allyson Schwartz demonstrated broader support for a comprehensive attack on gun violence," the group states in its voters' guide. "Wolf raised questions or hesitated to give full support for a few important policy proposals, but each still demonstrated strong support for measures to prevent gun violence."

Universal background checks, & ban assault weapons

All four Democratic candidates would sign legislation to enact universal background checks, ban sales of assault weapons, require that gun owners report lost or stolen guns and grant municipalities the ability to enact gun control ordinances.

McCord and Schwartz would sign legislation to limit the number of handguns that one person could buy in an effort to deter straw purchases. McGinty would not sign legislation to limit handgun purchases. Wolf wouldn't say whether he would sign that legislation.
