I see the Brady Campaign is jumping on the narrative that the Supreme Court, by refusing to take an appeal, based entirely on the standing issue, rather than the merits, has upheld Philadelphia’s Lost and Stolen ordinance. I have to admit that their ability to shape public opinion and perception through the use of these kinds of distortions in the media is second to none among advocacy groups.
I can promise you the MAIG/Brady lackey in Pennsylvania, Max Nachemann, will only be too happy to bring thisÂ narrativeÂ to every Borough, City and Township counsel when gun owners try to say the ordinances he’s pushing areÂ illegalÂ under Pennsylvania’s preemption law. A pity none of it will actually be true. The hope is that no one will bother to look hard enough. Sadly, often they don’t.
