Pissing Off the Right People in Philly

Monica Yant-Kinney, columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, is a well known mouth foamer when it comes to gun topics. Her latest article speaks against the new bill, HB1523, to, you know, actually enforce state law on the matter of firearms preemption.

Furious at lawmakers who killed the lost-and-stolen bill, city officials began taking small steps to protect their own. By 2009, nine cities – including Philadelphia, Lancaster, Reading, Pottsville, and Allentown – passed lost-and-stolen ordinances. To date, 30 brave towns have.

And how many criminals have been prosecuted? One? Two? The best answer I have is a fat zero. Explain to me how this law is so important if it isn’t even being used?

Pennsylvania gun laws are a sick joke. Any state that happily sells buyers unlimited weapons on demand is a state where politicians fear the wrath of the NRA more than the loss of their own lives.

Perhaps New Jersey would be more to Ms. Yant-Kinney’s liking. It’s just across the river. Please go, and take you voting habits with you. The fact of the matter is Pennsylvania’s constitution says, as is reflected in the title of this blog, “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.” Perhaps lawmakers in Pennsylvania don’t fear the NRA so much as they can read the plain language that they took an oath to uphold.

No wonder the Inquirer is going down the toilet.

    Maybe she’ll be one of the 37 out there looking for work in an industry that’s shrinking.

    I wish they would just hurry up and arrest somebody so it can be challenged already. The PPD will make sure that person (if such a person is ever arrested) is a perfect example for them to hold up to the press. In an effort to head this off, maybe some brave soul with only a Florida LTCF could march into a police station with video camera in tow and challenge the police to arrest him.
