Pittsburgh City Councilman Dan Gilman Moves to 'Illegally' Ban Guns in City Parks

Date: 09/26/2017

Pittsburgh City Council will vote on banning firearms in City Parks in 'direct' violation of Pennsyvania Court precedent (FOAC v. Lower Merion) and Pennsylvania law as well as a 1994 court order where the City of Pittsburgh agreed to abide by ALL Pennsylvania Law regarding firearms.  Pennsylvania law (Title 18, Section 6120) removes ALL authority from municipalities and cities regarding banning or restricting firearms.

Please make your voice heard about this clear violation of Pennsylvania Law that is even a Misdemeanor 1 criminal offense (Title 18, Section 6119).

Councilman Gilman's office can be reached through this link: http://pittsburghpa.gov/council/district8/index.html

Since this will be 'another' costly preemption fight we would very much appreciate your dedicated contribution to help us fund the upcoming legal action to stop this in the courts.  Please consider donating through our website donation portal here: https://foac-pac.org/Donate

Thank you for all your interest and support!

Kim Stolfer, President
