Enforcement Day

The City of Philadelphia has begun to enforce one of the gun laws that were not thrown out.  It should be noted that the laws that remain were not upheld, it was ruled that the National Rifle Association did not have standing to challenge the remaining three laws.  The city will begin enforcement of the Lost & Stolen Reporting Requirement only, at this point.  Anyone arrested under this ordinance will have standing to challenge the law under Pennsylvania’s preemption statute.  Any police officer or prosecutor enforcing this law is opening him or herself up to the possibility of lawsuits.

One thought on “Enforcement Day”

  1. Maybe they should first arrest the straw purchasers making the false reports of lost and stolen guns. Of course they rather punish the innocent not the deserving.
