    Seems like West Mifflin hasn't learned from the metal detectors,and now they are trying to pass an ordinancefor lost and stolen guns. In Today's McKeesport Daily( December 7,2009)News in the Legal Notices,that the new ordinance will be voted on the next council meeting,December 15,2009.

    Just to hit a few Sections that will try to be passed and make into the new law.

    Section 1

    Prohibited conduct- Any person who is the owner of a firearm that is lost or stolen shall report the loss or theft to the West Mifflin Police Department within 72 hours after the discovery of the loss or theft.

    Section 2

    Penalities for violation- Any person who violates this Ordinance shall be subect to a fine of not more than one thousand($1000.00),or imprisonment for not more than 90 days.

    Section 3

    Definition of firearm-For the purpose hereof,"firearm" shall have the definition given to it by 18 Pa. C.S.A. 6102,as may be amended from time to time.

    Section 4

    Repeal-All Ordinances or resolutions or parts of ordinances or resoltions insofar as they are inconsistant herewith are hereby repealed and rescinded.

    They obviously have not learned a thing - don't seem to understand what preemption means.

    First hand slap did not work.

    PENNSLYVANIA:Borough of West Mifflin to Consider "Lost or Stolen" Ordinance
    On Tuesday, December 15,at 6:30 p.m., the Borough Council of West Mifflin will consider a proposal that would require gunowners to report lost or stolen firearms within a 72-hour period or face fines and possible imprisonment. This law would not only violate Pennsylvania's state preemption laws, but would also turn law-abiding gun owners, who have already been victimized by theft, into criminals. The meeting will be held on the second floor of the West Mifflin Municipal Building located at 3000 Lebanon Church Road in West Mifflin. If you're planning on testifying, please contact the Borough Office at 412-466-8170. Please contact the members of the Borough Council of West Mifflin TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose this unwarranted, unjust and illegal ordinance. Contact information can be found here. If you are able, please attend this meeting to show your support for the Second Amendment and, if possible, speak against this ill-conceived proposal.
