Pittsburgh on Lost or Stolen

from the inbox:

... the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court today issued an opinion allowing Pittsburgh’s lost or stolen handgun reporting ordinance to stand, rejecting a challenge by the gun lobby. This follows a decision issued earlier this month by the PA Supreme Court allowing Philadelphia's lost or stolen ordinance to stand.

The court ruled that the NRA lacked legal standing to challenge the lost or stolen handgun reporting ordinance, that it was “. . . unconvinced that the ordinance burdens [the gun owners’ 2nd Amendment right to bear arms],” and lastly, rejected the NRA’s argument that the ordinance creates a burden on gun owners’ behavior because it requires them to inventory their firearms.
