A judge has thrown out a lawsuit challenging Pittsburgh's ordinance that requires gun owners to report lost or stolen guns to the police. (P-G, Ed Blazina)
Once Pittsburgh begins enforcing the law, someone who is charged with violating it could challenge the legality of the law. (ibid)
And that person would almost certainly win, which is why Pittsburgh is never going to enforce this law -- until we get a mayor who is such a huge gun control activist that he or she is willing to set what could be a million dollars on fire, just to cause a stink that nobody but other gun control activists will care about. I hate this issue. Everybody is right in some aspects, everybody is wrong in others, and all the while nothing is going to happen.
*-CORRECTION/UPDATE: Mayor Ravenstahl says he's going to talk to Chief Harper about enforcing the law.
One thing is for certain though. We should definitely hold another mayoral election in which every other question and comment is about gun control as broadly as possible.
