Guess I mixed it up with some of the older stuff. I just googled PA law enforcement gun storage and got this:
Point is they’re fretting about where to store all these guns, not about the citizenry resisting.
Some are eventually returned to their owners, others not.
In any case, a PFA order will make you miss your guns in central PA and this region is armed to the teeth, so the police are going to need more closets.
“Assault Weapon” is a BS term coined by the liberal media thirty years ago. Yes, I know “liberal media” is a redundant term.
Semi-automatic rifles, intended for the civilian market, is what I call them.
The gun-grabbers can go pound sand.
Violates 18 Pa.C.S. § 6120
§ 6120. Limitation on the regulation of firearms and ammunition.
(a) General rule.--No county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth.
The mayor’s Communication Director’s name is misspelled. It is NOT Peduto. It is PENDEJO.
Perduto impeachment hearings
The Connecticut Constitution says the same thing, but that hasn’t stopped the unconstitutional laws in CT.
I believe there have been other similar cases in PA and the municipalities had to pay the legal fees if the challengers. Thieve laws are clearly preempted by the state law.
PLEASE cease using the haplaphobe’s pejorative terminology!
They are NOT regulating “Assault weapons”, they are attacking our RKBA using irrational fear mongering.
Yes, there have been outrageous tragedies, but not to the point of significantly altering this simple truth.
firearmns are still overwhelmingly used to PREVENT orders of magnitude more crimes than they are used to commit.
Every time you hear those words from a democRat, you can be pretty darn sure you are about to lose some more of your freedoms.
Does the tyrant have the authority to do that? Not a state supreme court judge, but some random judge?
Did not say that. I said that I've met some good cops.
I am only one guy that knows a handful of police, how did you translate that into my endorsement of the entire police department?
I don't want to go full politician on you, but don't hang the entire PPD around my neck.
It took 20 posts for someone to nail it. Just like redistricting, the PA Supreme Court will take this and throw out pre-emption, allowing every little borough and community to write their own firearm laws.
This was the goal in tacking our state supreme court with socialists. North Carolina is in the same situation.
The socialists cannot win at he ballot box, so they will use the court system to implement their agenda.
Pittsburgh could always apply to join the State of New Jersey. They should take Philadelphia with them.
I believe the last GOP justices on the PA Supreme Court were the corrupt Orie harpies who poisoned the well for awhile.
I still shake my head about how the PA GOP rolled over for the redistricting ruling two years ago which helped give Pelosi control of the House.
The liberal's response to that clear directive is that they aren't questioning it. They are just eliminating it.
So says the virtue signaling career demoRAT.
Because, we all know potential murderers will always abide by local laws and ordinances.
