Here’s the Lawsuit the NRA Just Filed Against Philadelphia
As promised, the National Rifle Association has filed suit against the City of Philadelphia for “for refusing to comply with a state law that prohibits local governments from enacting gun control ordinances,” according to a statement from the organization today.
The organization is filing suit against Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Lancaster under the provisions of House Bill 80, which was signed into law in Harrisburg last year and allows membership organizations to sue municipalities where gun regulations are more restrictive than state law. “The cities of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Lancaster have openly defied state law for decades. They continue to willfully violate the law and insist on politically grandstanding at taxpayers’ expense,” Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative said in the statement.
The suit has just posted in the Philadelphia court system. We present it below as a public service. Stay tuned for more.
