Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh City Council to Consider Anti-Gun Ordinance Tomorrow!

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

Tomorrow, Thursday, November 20, the Pittsburgh City Council is having a public hearing 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. 

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 within the required 72-hour period.

The Pittsburgh City Council will take public remarks at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 20 in the City Council Chambers on the 5th Floor of the City County Building located at 414 Grant Street in Pittsburgh. You MUST sign up to be a speaker through the City Clerk’s Office at (412) 255-2138.

Please attend tomorrow’s hearing 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 our Second Amendment rights and oppose this measure.  Contact information can be found below.
