We have the God-given right to defend our lives, loved ones and property.
"The right of citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves
and the state shall not be questioned."
Ratified on September 2, 1790, Article 1, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution secured the Commonwealth’s legacy as the first state to adopt explicit language in our Constitution, affirming that private citizens have a right to bear arms.
The Castle Doctrine (Act 2 of 2011), reaffirmed our right to bear arms by allowing law-abiding citizens to use force, including deadly force, in self defense and the defense of others.
