Key endorsement for David M. Maloney in 130th State House Race

From Kim Stolfer, chairman of Firearms Owners Against Crime, on the group's endorsement of Republican David M. Maloney, candidate for the 130th District in the Pennsylvania House:
We, FOAC, are convinced that Mr. Maloney will actively support Pennsylvania citizen’s rights to defend themselves, their families and our constitutional heritage.

We believe that a strong, independent and constitutionally sound government is essential for our society to flourish, especially in these trying times. We have been in contact with Mr. Maloney for many months and he has demonstrated his knowledge of issues important to FOAC and we are confident he will represent the best interests of all Pennsylvanians regarding Second Amendment issues.

Mr. Maloney’s opponent in the November election, State Rep. Dave Kessler (D) who is also Chairman of the Oley Township Supervisors, voted for an ordinance to ban all firearms from all Oley Township municipal buildings. This ordinance directly violated state preemption law, our constitution and Rep. Kessler’s ‘oath of office’. Citizens and gun-owner groups strongly objected to the ban. We at FOAC and the NRA became involved and within a month Mr. Kessler and the other supervisors were forced to withdraw their own ordinance because it violated PA state law which prohibits municipalities from regulating the ownership and possession of firearms.
