Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!
On Tuesday, January 13, the York City Council’s Police Committee 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 York City Council Police Committee will begin their meeting at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow in the City Council Chambers on the 3rd Floor of the City County Building located at 1 Marketway West in York.
Please attend tomorrow’s hearing and proudly show your support for the Second Amendment and your opposition to this illegal and unwarranted attack on our rights. If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the City Council TODAY and respectfully urge them to stand up for our Second Amendment rights and oppose this measure.
