Preemption Victory

West Mifflin Township has decided to give up its plans to install metal detectors at the entrance to council chambers.  I actually don’t think this needs to be a violation of preemption per-se, as long as you wave people past who are carrying firearms legally.  But presumably that was not the intent here.

  1. Presumably nothing, that was absolutely the intent here.

    From the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, December 11, 2008:
    “Mr. Bednar said people who have a permit to carry a gun still will be required to leave their weapons outside of council chambers.”

    Howard Bednar is the borough manager for West Mifflin.
