City prohibited from regulating guns

You stated Mayor Gray intends to introduce a lost/stolen gun ordinance.

Did you know that Mr. Gray would be in violation of state preemption
under the uniform firearms act of 1995? Maybe someone should bring that
to his attention.

18 PA.C.S. § 6120 states, "No county, municipality or township may in
any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or
transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when
carried or transported for purposes
not prohibited by the laws of this

This will leave the City open to lawsuits if they try to prosecute under such a proposed ordinance.
