Please Contact the City Council Today!
Last night, the Harrisburg City Council’s Public Safety Committee supported an anti-gun ordinance that would require gun owners to report a lost or stolen firearm within 24-hours or face fines and possible imprisonment. The proposal will now be considered by the full City Council.
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 time period.
Please contact the members of the Harrisburg City Council TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this unwarranted and illegal ordinance. City Council members can be reached by phone at (717) 255-3060. Email addresses can be found below.
