    They can ask all they want, but anti-gun laws won't make it out of committee.

    When I lived in Colorado, Denver was able to pass their own laws about open carry and carry in a vehicle.

    So, it can happen.

    Section 6201 of Title 18, the Crimes Code, says no counties, municipalities, cities, or townships may regulate the possession, transfer, or transportation of firearms, ammunition, or ammunition components in a way inconsistent with the laws of the Commonwealth. For example, a township may not prohibit the ownership or possession of a pistol within its borders.

    You are wrong. However, the state legislature, in its wisdom, has seen fit to provide that to do so in Philadelphia you are required to have a valid LTCF.
