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 council’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, “The city could probably find many other priorities that the money they’re spending on lawyers would be better used for.” I couldn’t agree more!
