Pittsburgh Continues to Defy State Law

Most large cities in the United States seem to think they “know better” than the rest of the country, especially when it comes to firearm laws. Many large cities in the U.S. have passed restrictive gun laws, yet wonder why their crime rates continue to skyrocket. The City of Pittsburgh is considering a so-called “assault weapon ban,” even though state law forbids the city from passing firearm laws that are stricter than state law. The excuse used this time is the upcoming G-20 summit. I guess they don’t want to offend the visiting dignitaries by flaunting our liberties.

This is yet another example of the tactics typical of those seeking to destroy the right to keep and bear arms. Any excuse is jumped on to pass bans – even if those bans are not permitted under State or Federal law. Rule of law has absolutely no meaning for these individuals as they clearly believe “the ends justify the means.” Those of you in the greater Pittsburgh area, please contact the Mayor’s office or city council. Contact information is available here. We can’t let these self-righteous bureaucrats trample on our rights and liberties!

Until next time!!!
