NRA Likes New Gun Control Bill
 
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 02/16/12 10:47 am | updated: 02/16/12 10:47 am
 
A bill on its way through the General Assembly could open the door for the NRA to challenge local gun control laws passed by local governments.

The legislation would penalize municipalities - including Philadelphia and 29 others - that have enacted laws to curb illegal gun sales by requiring them to pay damages and penalties to plaintiffs who challenge those laws in the courts.

The bill is being applauded by the National Rifle Association and condemned by such local officials as Lancaster's mayor and Philadelphia's district attorney.

The proposal, which would expand the rights of the NRA and other interest groups to sue municipalities, easily passed the Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee last week within days of its introduction and without hearings. It could go to a full House vote as soon as March; its fate in the Senate is unclear.
