Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh City Council to Consider Anti-Gun Ordinance on Tuesday, November 18!

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

On Tuesday, November 18, the Pittsburgh City Council could vote on an anti-gun ordinance that would require gun owners to report a lost or stolen firearm within a 72-hour period or face fines and possible imprisonment. 

At the request of the Pittsburgh City Council, several anti-gun speakers have been asked to attend this meeting for discussion purposes.  One of those speakers is gun control advocate State Representative David Levdansky (D-39).  Similar legislation, sponsored by Representative Levdansky, was defeated in the state legislature earlier this year.   

This proposed ordinance would violate Pennsylvania’s state preemption statutes which dictate that only the state can enact further firearms regulations.  It would victimize law-abiding gun owners a second time by penalizing those who unknowingly fail to report the theft or loss of a firearm.

The Pittsburgh City Council will consider this ordinance at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 18 in the City Council Chambers on the 5th Floor of the City County Building located at 414 Grant Street in Pittsburgh.

Please attend and proudly show your support for the Second Amendment and your opposition to this illegal attack on our rights.  If you cannot attend, please contact the members of the City Council and respectfully urge them to stand up for your Second Amendment rights and oppose this measure.  Contact information can be found below.
