From KYW1060, we learn City Council’s efforts on gun control aren’t likely to succeed:
Philadelphia city council has sent Mayor Street gun control bills and, lacking state authorization, plans to go to court, seeking the ability to enforce them. But councilâ€™s strategy faces long-shot odds of success.
Franklin and Marshall College professor and political analyst Terry Madonna says even if a Philadelphia Common Pleas judge were to side with council over the state legislature, based on history, council is not likely to prevail on appeal.
State Senator Erik Arneson said, â€œThe city could probably find many other priorities that the money theyâ€™re spending on lawyers would be better used for.â€ I couldn’t agree more!
