New Pittsburgh Gun Control Laws

Apr 15, 2019

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto recently signed three new gun control bills. These bills were motivated by the tragic Tree of Life Shooting where a Nazi killed eleven unarmed people in a synagogue.

One of the bills prevents gun owners from having their rifle loaded. Semi-automatic rifles are to be rendered useless as shooting or chambering a round violates the law and warrants up to a $1000 fine.

The second bill would make it illegal to have loaded magazines (capable of holding more than ten rounds). It is still legal to own this type of magazine, but you just can't load them.

The last bill is "These Extreme Risk Protection Orders" (ERPO). It allows police to confiscate a person's guns without due process.

“Pittsburgh residents have a right to carry the self-defense tool that best suits their needs, and the NRA is proud to support this challenge to the city’s magazine ban,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action. “Restricting law-abiding citizens from exercising their constitutional rights will do nothing to stop violent criminals.”
