PA Gov Corbett Signs New Gun Law

Gun rights groups are celebrating tonight in Pennsylvania. They have claimed that many local gun control laws are too restrictive. But today, Governor Tom Corbett signed a bill that erases local gun laws, and puts all authority with the state.

It was only last year that a group called “Open Carry Pennsylvania” protested a City of Erie ordinance that prohibits guns inside municipal parks. The group fought the Erie law all the way to Commonwealth Court, where it eventually won.

There would be no need for that fight this year with the passage of the new bill.

“We’ve been lobbying the governor for awhile now, and also our state representatives and our senate. I was just down in harrisburg two weeks ago lobbying for the bill to be passed and it was passed,” said Justin Dillon, of Open Carry Pennsylvania.
