    Angry Wilson Borough [Northampton] - Lost and Stolen

    Wilson Borough considers law requiring the reporting of missing guns

    WILSON BOROUGH | The borough may join some of the largest, crime-ridden cities in the state by requiring notification about lost or stolen handguns to the police department.

    Council President Leonard Feinberg presented a draft ordinance Monday night. He's concerned about someone buying a gun then selling or giving it to someone who could not legally buy a weapon, who ends up using it in a crime.

    The law would require the owner of a firearm to report to police within 72 hours after the discovery that the weapon has been lost or stolen.

    He said the law, supported by Chief Steve Parkansky, would be similar to one approved in Allentown, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

    Easton council rejected a similar measure in 2008, although the mayor suggested in January he might reintroduce the proposal.

    Council Vice President Louis Starniri said such a law should come from the state legislature. Feinberg said state legislators considered such a law, but it never came up for a vote. He believes municipalities should adopt such ordinances to show a "unified front."
    Paradigm posted this over at PA Open Carry, but I figured I'd cross post it. Apparently he hasn't been on PAFOA since Feb 1st?

    The next council meeting is on the 12th of April at 7:00 pm. The public is welcome. I have to work, but I can get there at 7:30. When I went to find out when it was the lady at the window ask why, and I told her. She didn't even know it was not legal to do that in PA.

    Thank you I could use the help. I see you were in the Coast Guard. My oldest son is serving his tenth year. He just reenlisted for another six. He has been to Sand war once, and just put in to go back. My youngest wants to be a Coastie also. I already sent e-mails to the people I could reach. This new police chief has a lot to do with it. They did just order new pistols for the dept. on our tab. I am out of work for one more week, due to a motorcycle accident. My e-mail is (dragon-wizard@msn.com).

    I went to school in Wilson and my Mother and siblings still live there. This is bullshit. I'm going to see if I can get off work for that meeting. They are getting letter.

    Excuse my ignorance fellas but I thought that when Philly and Pittsburgh tried this crap it was struck down due to pre-emption?

    Make it clear to them that all a straw purchaser has to do to avoid this is say he just discovered it was missing. Now it's up to the police to prove he's lying.

    P.S.
    Good luck to you
