Briggs: Pennsylvanians’ Lives are Valuable

Pennsylvania House Judiciary Chairman Tim Briggs said that it’s clear that the Judiciary Committee’s majority chairman remains indifferent to the trauma caused by the gun violence that is impacting communities around the commonwealth. The Committee’s action today to “punt” on real consideration of meaningful gun safety reform is consistent with the chairman’s longstanding pledge to obstruct any effort to stem gun violence in Pennsylvania or act on gun safety legislation. Families and communities will continue to suffer until the Republican majority decides Pennsylvanian lives are more valuable than the support and praise from the gun lobby.
