    The Firearms Owners Against Crime (FOAC) is non-partisan, non-connected

    Political Action Committee organized to empower ‘all’ gun owners, outdoors

    enthusiasts and supporters of the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the U.S.

    Constitution and Article 1 Section 21 of the PA Constitution with the tools and

    information necessary to protect this freedom from transgression. FOAC was formed

    shortly after the City of Pittsburgh's illegal gun and ammunition ban of 1993. This was

    an active year for gun legislation in Pennsylvania (Act 84 of 1994-HB 185 the

    preemption law, Casey's gun ban) and the United States (Brady Bill, Assault Weapons

    Ban...). A number of those who fought the Pittsburgh gun ban realized that a more

    politically active role was necessary if we were keep our right to own and use guns.

    Our first informal meetings were at the Whitehall Borough Building where we have

    continued to meet on a regular basis. The FOAC became a formal Political Action

    Committee in early 1994.



    We aggressively oppose legislators who want to restrict the legitimate use of

    firearms, including personal and property protection as guaranteed by the Constitutions

    of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We accomplish these

    goals by monitoring and reviewing legislative initiatives and voting records of elected

    officials. This information is shared with interested parties, such as County

    Sportsmen’s Leagues, the PA Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, the Unified Sportsmen

    of PA, the Lehigh Valley Firearms Coalition, PA Gun Owners Association, PA State

    Camp Lessees Association and other interested organizations at both the state and

    county level.

    Thank you! We have a lot of work to do in PA. With Mayor Bloomberg and Mayors Against Illegal Guns and CeasefirePA teaming up and targeting our cities and Philly unilaterally disregarding state law and invalidating out of state permits we have our work cut out for us. If you are in PA look us up and don't just join us...get involved!

    Did you see the picture on the front page of the Hazleton Standard-Speaker? They caught some goofball blasting away with an AK inside the city limits (the paper labeled the AK an SKS). Certainly not the type of thing to help FAO.
