Pennsylvania Judge Throws Out Pittsburgh Gun-Control Measures

Rules new ordinances violate state preemption law.

  1. The Left isn’t going to like this and will go to work to find a way around it.

    They will continue to blame the guns for the problem of Berserkers killing people in mass to avoid the question of why we are producing so many more people who want to kill with wanton abandon than we did in the past.

  2. Americans scream that the elites won’t send the 99% to the concentration camps because everyone has a mobile phone, but what if the Gestapo shuts down the Internet?

    What if the globalists say everyone must go to the concentration camps because of Ebola or the Russians are coming?

  3. Political news forum
    Do you ever wonder why no one wants to be around you. Holy cow listen to yourself. Stop it.

  4. Sad trombones all around, for Mayor Three Dollar Bill, his trusty sidekick – Corky O’ Connor – and all the other city council dumbasses, whose “FEELS” got trumped by the RULE OF LAW… AGAIN! 😆 😆 😆

  5. This isn’t exactly a “judge rules” situation, it’s more like the law clearly says it in so many words. It’s nice that at least some judges still respect that, though.
