Under the bill, gun owners and rights organizations would have standing in court to sue municipalities over firearms ordinances that they say are more restrictive. PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Editor’s note: The above video is from March 2020. Resuming a long fight over local gun laws, Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives is approving veto-destined legislation to help gun owners and gun-rights organizations force cities to repeal firearms restrictions. The bill passed the Republican-controlled chamber Tuesday, 124-79. But Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has promised to veto it. Under the bill, gun owners and gun-rights organizations would have standing in court to sue municipalities over firearms ordinances that they contend are more restrictive than state law. A city could also be ordered to pay damages. Similar provisions were once law, signed in 2014 by then-Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican, but later struck down in court on a technicality.
