Pa. County: New Gun Laws Won’t Apply Here
MONTROSE, Pa. (AP) – Commissioners in a rural Pennsylvania county have passed a resolution saying any new laws restricting gun rights won't apply there.
The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports Susquehanna County officials say new gun laws passed just over the state line in New York prompted them to act. The resolution passed Wednesday says any new federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that infringes on Second Amendment rights shall be “unenforceable” in the county.
Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco says the county’s resolution is an important statement to make in response to the New York laws and current proposals in Pennsylvania. No one at the meeting came out in opposition to the resolution.
