Philadelphia Judge Allows NRA Lawsuit To Resume

posted on May 1, 2015

NRA lawsuits against the illegal gun ordinances found in several Pennsylvania cities have been held up in the courts on a legal technicality, and the case in Pittsburgh has been halted by a stay that an appeals court opted not to lift earlier this week.

But happier news prevails in Philadelphia, as the presiding judge has ruled that the case may move forward. Pennsylvania state law is clear on the point that municipalities may not regulate guns more strictly than in state law, so striking down these restrictive and wrong-headed ordinances is one step closer to reality.
