April’s Meeting

Joe Lundberg from AccuWeather will be discussing the facts about global warming at SVC’s meeting on April 22 at 7pm.

Due to schedule conflicts, Congressman Lou Barletta is unable to make the April meeting, however we hope to have him with us in the upcoming months.

NOTE: April Meeting changed to April 22, the 4th Monday of the month (rather than the 2nd Monday of the month due to schedule conflicts)


March Meeting Summary

State Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R – Butler) brought his message of strong support for both the  Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution and Article 1, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution to Lewisburg on Monday March 11. A standing-room-only crowd of more than 150 was in attendance.

‘An armed law-abiding citizenry is the best deterrent to crime,’ Metcalfe stated.

Metcalfe cited various ways gun control advocates in the General Assembly have recently tried to ‘back door’ the issue and take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to own firearms.

  • A Philadelphia lawmaker who wants to sue gun manufacturers for crimes in which a firearm is involved; holding the manufacturer responsible instead of the perpetrator of the crime. (This particular legislator openly admitted to Metcalfe – twice – that he has not read either the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, or Article 1, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution)
  •  A Legislator who wants every Pennsylvania resident who holds a permit to carry a firearm to be required to maintain a $ 1 million liability insurance policy.
  • Another lawmaker who wants the Commonwealth to limit firearms purchases to 1 per month.


Representative Metcalfe is sponsoring legislation – House Bill 357 – that, if enacted, will make new federal gun laws unenforceable in Pennsylvania.

House Bill 357 currently has 71 co-sponsors. 102 are needed to advance the legislation.

If you believe in the Second Amendment, phone, write, or email Pennsylvania legislators – not just those in your district – and tell them to sponsor HB 357.

As Rep Metcalfe stated, the Second Amendment was originally written to protect citizens against government tyranny. If you feel that government is chipping away at your rights, freedom, and liberty YOU MUST ACT !

Upcoming March and April Meetings


That’s the topic Daryl Metcalfe (Republican- Butler County) will be addressing when he is the speaker for the Monday, March 11 meeting of Susquehanna Valley Conservatives at 7:00PM 7:30 PM in the Baylor East Conference Room of the Best Western Country Cupboard Inn, Lewisburg. Recognized by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as the Pennsylvania General Assembly’s “No. 1 Conservative”, State Representative Daryl Metcalfe is serving his eighth term in office. He serves as the Republican Majority Chairman of the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee.

On January 23, 2013, Rep. Metcalfe announced his legislation that would make any new federal gun control laws unenforceable within the Commonwealth. “Passage of my legislation will send a message that there will never be additional gun control, anywhere in Pennsylvania,” said Metcalfe. “Whether by White House executive orders, congressional fiat, or judicial activism, we will never allow the left to benefit from the wicked acts of murderers in order to advance their senseless gun-grabbing agenda which would only succeed in replacing one of our most sacred personal liberties with the chains of government tyranny.”

The meeting is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
