Looks like a Pittsburgh man was arrested for openly carrying, based on a Pittsburgh ordinance that’s pretty clearly unlawful.Â Open carry is forbidden without a license in a City of the First Class (i.e. Philadelphia), but that’s actually part of Pennsylvania Law, not a city ordinance.Â Pittsburgh apparently decided it needed such a law too, and just passed it, in violation of the proscription of the state legislature.Â I guess they don’t like the fact that under state law, Pittsburgh isn’t a first class city.

“Pittsburgh isnâ€™t a first class city.”
That’s a nice double entendre…
Philadelphia isn’t a first class city either… First class dump maybe, but that’s about it.
Unless you LIKE burned out row house blocks, a high murder rate and trash covered streets.
