Injunction Granted

A judge has blocked the City of Philadelphia from enforcing its gun control ordinances:

Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan is granting the National Rifle Association’s request Thursday to keep the ordinances from taking effect right away. The NRA argues that Pennsylvania law prevents municipalities from regulating guns.

So, the question is, how far do you want to push this Mayor Nutter and Commissioner Ramsey?  Do we want to risk contempt of court charges in addition to civil rights violations?  Still want to enforce your laws?

    They say they’re going to push it:

    If a court of law is where we’ll need to go to force a discussion about how to make our city safe, then that’s where we’ll be,” Oliver said. “As the mayor said, doing nothing is not an option.”

    They say they are going to push it in the courts. Doesn’t say they are going to flout the injunction.
