"New" PA Governor Signs "Castle Doctrine" Bill Into Law

Many of you in other states are probably thinking, "Welcome to the 21st century," but this has been a long fight for gun owners in PA, against previous governor "Fast Eddie" Rendell and embedded democrat state politicians.  The bill was stalled for months by a state congressman who wouldn't bring it up for a vote, and some other political horseplay.  Once finally brought to a vote, it didn't meet very much opposition.  PA voted in a lot of Republicans in 2010, including Governor Corbett.  The bill was passed to Corbett on the 22nd, after passing through PA Senate, and he signed on the 28th.

For PA residents, "Castle Doctrine" law goes into effect on August 27, 2011.

There are legislators who look upon gun owners in the same way that bigots look upon black people.
