“Lost or Stolen” Ordinance Revived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

Yesterday, Mayor Richard Gray (D) reintroduced a proposal that would require gun owners to report a lost or stolen firearm within a 72-hour period or face fines and possible imprisonment.  This law not only violates Pennsylvania’s state preemption laws, but it makes innocent law-abiding victims into criminals.

The proposal will be considered by the Lancaster City Council on Tuesday, May 26.  A vote by the City Council is expected on Tuesday, June 9.

Please make plans to attend the May 26 City Council meeting to show your support for the Second Amendment and, if possible, voice your opposition to this illegal and unwarranted proposal.  The meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Council’s Chambers in the Southern Market Building located at 100 South Queen St. in Lancaster.


If you are unable to attend, please contact the City Council TODAY at (717) 291-4785 and respectfully urge them to oppose the Mayor’s ordinance.
  Email addresses for the City Council can be found below.  Also, please contact Mayor Gray by phone at (717) 291-4701 or e-mail mayorsoffice@cityoflancasterpa.com and ask him to withdraw his proposal.
