Hatboro Voting on L&S On Feb 22nd

Ironically on the same day the new National Park regulations go into effect:

Hatboro Mayor Norm Hawkes proposed a lost or stolen handgun ordinance to borough council Monday night that he said would help keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.

If adopted, the ordinance would require citizens to report their lost or stolen handguns to the police up to 72 hours after discovery.

Anyone who violates the ordinance would be subject to a fine of no more than $1,000, or imprisonment for not more than 90 days, or both, reads the draft ordinance.

Council will vote at its meeting Feb. 22 if it will advertise the ordinance for a future vote.

They introduced it the same night as Radnor’s, which was no doubt intended to spread us thin. Since we had more activists to work with in Radnor, that was probably the smarter township to target, but now I’m wondering, since apparently the Solicitor for the Township in Hatboro can read plain law:

Hatboro Solicitor Christen Pionzio told council she did not feel comfortable recommending it adopt the ordinance.

Looks like Max Nachemann is intending to keep us very busy.

  1. You know … part of me thinks this:

    It’s insane what they are doing, since it obviously offends state preemption. Thus, they are passing them as symbolic and defiant ordinances with no teeth.

    Would it not be better to pour activist resources elsewhere, rather than running about for outcry at every little po-dunk town that proposes the L&S?

    When they prosecute someone in violation … that’s when to move. Otherwise, I just wonder if it’s no more than chasing wild geese.

  2. Hatboro is the same night of the Radnor meeting. I just heard Cam mention your blog and the Radnor discussion was with NRA State Liason, John Hohenwarter. Cam’s producer is from Radnor Township. John Hohenwarter mentioned maybe having some additional help for us NRA members before the next Radnor meeting.
