    PAFOA Members Help Frustrate MAIG in the Southeast

    The “Lost and Stolen” ordinances that have been introduced by Mayors Against Illegal Guns and CeaseFire PA, in communities around the Commonwealth, have come to the Southeast. But we’re happy to report these ordinances, which are illegal, and violate state preemption, have run into some trouble. That trouble is gun owners.

    We’re very proud of some of the work of our individual members in helping to frustrate and defeat the passage of virtually all of the ordinances that have been introduced in the new year. First in Radnor,*which has tabled the bill for now. On the same day CeaseFire Pennsylvania was pushing for the ordinance in Radnor, Mayors Against Illegal Guns pushed Lost and Stolen in Hatboro. Hatboro*has rejected the ordinance in favor of a resolution, which they will be hearing Monday March 22nd. We still oppose the resolution, which urges the General Assembly to pass a statewide law, but we’ve made progress.*Ambler Borough decided not to pursue an ordinance a few weeks ago. This week Swarthmore, Pennsylvania*has decided to table its Lost and Stolen ordinance.

    There is still much work to do here, but we just want to take time to thank our members who put so much time and energy into helping organize other gun owners to fight these ordinances. We particularly want to thank those members who were residents of these municipalities who showed up to speak out against the ordinance to their local elected officials. If we can replicate this excellent example of organization and motivation across the Commonwealth, perhaps we can begin to push Bloomberg’s Mayors group back to New York City where it belongs.

    I am happy to report that Hatboro voted down their resolution to send to Harrisburg. It was close but sensibilty stepped in!
