Stop Gun Control in Governor Shapiro’s Budget

Governor Shapiro’s Budget Funds Gun Control

Governor Shapiro is trying to assault your Second Amendment and privacy rights in his proposed 2024-2025 Pennsylvania budget.

Shapiro proposes to establish the Office of Gun Violence within the Pennsylvania Commission for Crime and Delinquency. This new office would be nothing more than a propaganda machine to justify more calls for gun control.

Plus, the $37.5 million increase for the Violence Intervention and Prevention program is nothing more than government pork to nonprofits, schools, and municipalities that are usually hostile to our Second Amendment rights.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Shapiro’s budget calls for an additional $1.5 million to increase staffing at the Pennsylvania State Police to audit and harass lawful firearms retailers.

The budget would also allocate more staff to the Pennsylvania Criminal Intelligence Center (PaCIC) to expand social media monitoring to “intervene before online grievances escalate to violence.”

That’s right, Shapiro’s budget would increase funding to the Pennsylvania State Police to spy on your social media in some Orwellian scheme to monitor your online behavior.

And it couldn’t be clearer that Shapiro wants to put as many firearms retailers out of business as he can, just like the Biden Administration.

The Pennsylvania Senate is the firewall to oppose these draconian measures. That’s why I need you to send a message to your state senator (by using the form above) demanding that they slash gun control in Governor Shapiro’s proposed budget.
