The Lehigh County District Attorney is resisting attempts by Allentown to pass local gun ordinances similar to Phialdelphia’s. If people want to know why we defend preemption tooth and nail, this is why. Before long you have a patchwork of laws that no one can reasonably comply with:
Any officer who makes an arrest under the ordinance could face obstruction of justice charges, Martin said in an interview Monday.
”The issue is clear,” Martin said. ”When it comes to gun-control legislation, any city ordinance is preempted by state law and that makes any Allentown law unenforceable.”
James Martin deserves the support of gun owners for being willing to stand by the law and our state’s constitution.
