*this bill would allow many people convicted of minor violent offense to legally purchase firearms. personally I don't feel that a person who might have caught a misdemeanor charge in their 20's should be not allowed to poses a firearm until the age of 65, as the current laws stand.
Pennsylvania is close to enacting a greatly improved expungement law that will help more people. We need your help to get this law passed.
The Pennsylvania State Senate has a proposed law (Senate Bill 391) that will expand the eligibility for expungement to include misdemeanor convictions. If enacted, tens of thousands of deserving people would become eligible for expungement. This would not only give hope and opportunity to former offenders who deserve freedom from their past, but it would also save the taxpayers of Pennsylvania millions of dollars by reducing unemployment, cutting crime, and encouraging plea bargains.
The only thing holding up the bill right now is State Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi. Please call Senator Pileggi's office on this toll free number and simply let him or his staff members know that you want him to allow a vote on Senate Bill 391 (The expungement bill).
