Misleading Article on Philly Gun Ordinances

The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that the Supreme Court has upheld the local Philadelphia gun ordinances. This is false. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania on Monday denied the appeal of the National Rifle Association, who was dismissed based on standing, and not on the merits. This is still very much an undecided issue. You can read the opinion here. All this really means is that the Supreme Court is letting stand the lower court ruling on the standing issue. This most certainly did not uphold any of Philadelphia’s ordinances on Lost and Stolen.

When it comes to gun issues, it’s always best to ignore the Philly papers. They don’t know what they are talking about most of the time.
