Pennsylvania: The Borough of Swarthmore May Table “Lost or Stolen” Ordinance!

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Please Stand Up and Make Your Voice Heard!

As we reported, Mayor Richard Lowe, a member of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”, introduced an ordinance that would require gun-owners in the Borough of Swarthmore to report lost or stolen firearms within 72-hours or face a fine up to $1,000 and/or up to 90 days in jail. 

At Monday’s meeting, the Borough Council voiced its intent to table the ordinance at the next meeting, scheduled for Monday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m.  Please make plans to attend this hearing and show your support for the Second Amendment.

This proposal not only violates Pennsylvania’s state preemption laws, but also potentially turns law-abiding gun owners -- who have already been victimized by theft -- into criminals.

Also, please continue to contact the Mayor and the members of the Borough Council and respectfully voice your opposition to this unwarranted, unjust and illegal proposal and ask that they table it.  Contact information can be found below.
