Senate Judiciary Committee schedules fall hearings on gun violence, mental health

As Democratic lawmakers continue to call for gun reforms, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lisa Baker (R-Luzerne) this week announced the committee’s fall schedule, promising a series of hearings on gun violence, the statute of limitations and the parole process in Pennsylvania.

After two mass shootings in Ohio and Texas earlier this month, Baker pledged to hold public hearings prior to taking action on gun-related measures. Those hearings will be held on September 24 and September 25 to address “behavioral health, Second Amendment rights and other gun-related issues,” according to a release from her office.

Gun advocates protest Pittsburgh’s proposed firearms restrictions

On most days, the Pittsburgh City-County Building is a firearm-free zone, but on Monday, anyone on Grant Street would have seen a structure surrounded by hundreds of gun advocates.

Many of the advocates were armed with handguns and rifles, and the occasional musket, as they rallied against Mayor Bill Peduto and a package of gun control legislation introduced by Pittsburgh City Council last month.
