>>PA Supreme Court: Residents Can Challenge A City's Gun Restrictions

(Harrisburg, PA) -- The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is ruling that anyone can sue to challenge a city's laws even if they don't reside there. This ruling came down yesterday over a case regarding Harrisburg's gun ordinances. Now, plaintiffs don't have to wait until they're charged for violating the ordinances before challenging them. Firearm Owners Against Crime applauded the decision, saying these days it's difficult to get the government to do the right thing. Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse says this is good news for the gun lobby and lawyers who are going to make money suing cities with this widened definition of standing, but it's bad news for residents in Harrisburg and across the state.
