Municipal gun ordinance preemption bills get PA legislative spotlight

The Pennsylvania Senate Tuesday afternoon passed by a 34-16 vote a bill that would allow membership organizations such as the NRA to sue municipalities on behalf of aggrieved members over gun ordinances that are already preempted by state law.

 

The House considered amendments to similar legislation that was ultimately unchanged despite several dozen amendments being filed to the proposal.

Municipal gun ordinance preemption bill clears House committee

Legislation that would largely reenact the municipal gun ordinance preemption provisions of Act 192 of 2014 overwhelmingly passed the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

 

The bill, House Bill 2258, would grant standing to Pennsylvania residents who are lawfully able to possess a firearm and membership organizations representing a similarly situated individual to challenge municipal gun ordinances they believe are preempted by state law.
