State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) issued the following statement today in response to Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto’s latest demands for more gun control:
“Article 1, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution clearly states: ‘The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned.’
“Rather than applauding Mayor Peduto for imposing his blatantly illegal, unconstitutional and extreme red flag gun control ordinances, my impeachment resolution seeks to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens and their Constitution by removing him from office.
“Peduto and his allies expose themselves as callous, gun-grabbing liberals through their exploitation of the heinous crimes committed against the victims of these evil murderous acts in their relentless attempts to criminalize the God-given, constitutionally affirmed rights of law-abiding firearm owners.”
