    Good question.

    I suppose he can pass as many illegal laws as he wants - it comes down to fighting them in court afterwards.

    He's already passed at least 2 anti-gun laws that are on the books, so apparently there's nothing to stand in his way of creating more laws in violation of state law.

    We are no longer a nation of laws. Mayors, Governors and whoever else believes they are in charge may enforce whatever policies they wish.
    We now live in a lawless era where laws no longer apply to government officials.

    The AG Shapiro, good luck with that. And we can't protest carrying arms because of the opioid state of emergency. Thank Wolf...

    Do we need an open carry march in Pittsburgh? AR STYLE RIFLES ONLY?

    They're going to pass this illegal legislation. We should march.

    Posted on Burgess's FB page. He's on the news trying to stop a gun show, and he's introducing the AWB in Pittsburgh.

    If we do we will be jacked up and they won't need to test their new ban. State of emergency forbids carrying long arms...
