    This was the title of a link on Yahoo, but after clicking the link a message said that the video was unavailable. Didn't see the story on msnbc. Can anyone fill me in?

    I don't know how new it is. PA has a non-preemption wrt firearms (local laws cannot be more-restrictive). Fast Eddie Rendell and his shills in Philadelphia created laws that went against pre-emption. They got pimp-slapped by the reality of the PA laws.

    Ahhh. Thanks. Glad to hear the judgment, but these cities refuse to accept that the law applies to them.

    What is really bad, is that while striking down 2 of the 5 injuctions, the other really bogus one stays - reporting lost or stolen guns.

    "Gee officer, the last time I held my gun was 6 months ago and i just now went to get it and its gone". Ugh...

    So now its going to the Supreme Court....waste of money...

    Exactly. So now you go to prison for someone else stealing from you.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."

    Wrong! The judge sided with PA state law which preempts cities from enacting their own firearms laws.
    Clinging to guns and God in PA...
