Judge blocks Philadelphia from enforcing new gun laws

Here we go again...

From TBO:
A judge on Thursday temporarily blocked the city from enforcing five gun-control ordinances pending a challenge from the National Rifle Association.

The NRA argues that state law prevents Pennsylvania municipalities from regulating guns, a view that even the city's crime-weary district attorney shares.

"The city has no basis to pass any of these gun-control ordinances and they know it," lawyer C. Scott Shields argued on the NRA's behalf.
They tried this in Helena Montana, they banned loaded firearms within city limits against the preemptive state law which stated no municipality or cvounty could pass tougher gun restrictions than the state, which allows open carry. Well, I fought that one and won it , with the help of the NRA. These anti-gun legislators need to know they have to follow the laws of their states. Not to mention more gun control laws will not prevent violent crime; criminals do not follow laws.
