Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard!
Tonight, the York City Council is scheduled to vote on Ordinance Bill No. 58. Ordinance Bill No. 58 is 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 statute. State preemption regulating firearms was enacted by the legislature to avoid the possibility of 2,639 separate firearm laws across the Commonwealth. Without preemption there would be a myriad of local firearm laws making compliance nearly impossible for law-abiding gun owners.
The York City Council will begin taking public comment tonight between 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers on the 3rd Floor of the City County Building, located at 1 Marketway West in York. Please keep in mind that the public is only given a 30-minute window for comments. To view the ordinance, please click here.
Please attend tonight’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.
