We Thought Illinois was Bad

  • In the near future, I [State Rep Thaddeus Kirkland Pennsylvania], will introduce legislation amending Title 18 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, which will address the use of human silhouette targets at shooting ranges.

    Rather than perpetuate violence by continuing to allow individuals to practice their target shooting by shooting at human silhouette targets at shooting ranges, my legislation will prohibit the use of targets that depict human silhouettes at shooting ranges across the Commonwealth. Instead, silhouette targets could include, but are not limited to the following: white-tailed deer, black bear, wild turkey, and elk.

    My legislation creates a new section under Title 18 Chapter 61 regarding firearms and other dangerous articles. Specifically, the bill prohibits the use of human silhouette targets at shooting ranges across the Commonwealth except by law enforcement officers, military personnel or other public safety personnel in line with their official duties. If a person violates the provisions of the new section, he or she will commit a summary offense.
Seriously, he wants to ban silhouette targets because god forbid someone practices with something that looks slightly like something they might actually encounter in a shooting situation.

Everyone knows that shooting at Silhouette targets teaches people to become killers. It desensitizes them to taking human life. Such targets have been banned in Europe for over a decade.

So then they should be able to shoot at a target of Kirkland. It would'nt be a human silhouette but only a body part of a human, specifically the asshole.

Given the number of white-tailed deer committing armed robbery, plus all the black bear burglars, wild turkey carjackers, and elks you just KNOW are out for trouble... THIS IS A GREAT IDEA !

The good news is you can still use your state rep targets being that this new change only bans the use of "human" silhouettes

And that is why Europeans needed Americans to save them from fascists and will allow Islam to take them over. When you are gutless and stupid enough to believe that there are no evil people in the world that need killing, you will cease to exist. Too bad liberals will take the good down with them as they are wiped off the face of the earth.

All progs want to make firearms training more difficult whenever possible, so they can point out that lack of training causes accidents, and that it's another reason why people shouldn't have guns.

Liberals are pure bitches. They are controlled by communists who are sinister. The commies let the bitches pussify a population so that they will more easily give up their freedom to a communist government. The problem with this is that there are real threats in the world that bitch liberals don't like to acknowledge. From the ghetto thug gang banger to the Islamic fascists, liberals do nothing but make excuses for them because that fits their pussy ideology.

Real Americans understand that you just might have to defend yourself or another because they live in the real world, not some made up bitch utopia of how things should be that Islamic fascists and thugs of all sorts laugh at.

You would think that natural selection would have taken all the liberals out by now. They will eventually let the world be taken over by the ruthless. It's just a matter of time. People keep voting for stupid liberals and they will pay for it eventually.

And the tax payers pay him how much per year? With all the issues that every state has, why is it that across the board politicians always seem to address the most off the wall time and money wasters. Why not elect a 4th grader. I guarantee they are more focused and at least when they come up with an off the wall reform we can chalk it up to them being a 4th grader.

I agree, no silhouettes. We should be shooting at photographs of actual bad people or politicians; same thing.

I always get a few laughs at the range for my squirrel targets.

I hate squirrels.

And the bastards are small.

so, i figure if i practice defensive shooting on what is depicted as an opportunistic,garbage-eating, rabid, beady-eyed, pea-brained, flea-infested rodent...

I should expect to be more effective against opportunistic,garbage eating, rabid, beady-eyed, pea-brained, flea invested, base-humans.

So put up a picture of a "Space Alien" who just happens to be "humanoid" in shape.

Technically doesn't violate the law...

Just like when some other imbecilic jurisdiction made "black" guns one of the banned cosmetic features, so the manufacturers came up with other colors - pink, purple, blue, etc...

Well if this idiotic thing gets passed, and if I ever go to Pennsylvania to visit my paternal grandfather's grave, I guess I'll have to leave my life size Osama Bin Laden head (silhouette?) targets at home. LOL

I'm glad this idiot Democrat politician thinks all of Pennsylvania's real problems have been solved, like the violent -- Black On White -- crime that happens in downtown Philly during broad daylight.

I was told that the older "Black Talon" bullets were given a facelift because of the color of the bullet which is now the SXTs. Is this true? Just make the silhouettes multi colored. Problem solved.
