SCOTUS: NRA can’t challenge local gun laws

2010 SHOT Show - Media Day at the Range - The New Gen4 Glock 19

This was one of the big ALEC-sponsored laws. I am happy it got the treatment it deserved:

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Monday declined to reinstate a law that gave the National Rifle Association the right to challenge local gun-control rules in court.

The Commonwealth Court overturned the law last year on the ground that the legislative process used to make it had violated the constitution. The gun provision had been added to a bill that addressed the theft of metals.

“The Supreme Court unanimously agreed with what the Commonwealth Court unanimously found: that the legislature violated the single-subject rule in an effort to pass an unpopular and irrational bill without being noticed,” said Sen. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), who led the lawsuit challenging the law.

House Speaker Mike Turzai and Senate President Pro Tem Joe Scarnati had appealed the Commonwealth Court ruling. Drew Crompton, the Senate GOP general counsel, said he assumed Republicans would try again to pass such a proposal, adding that some towns were going overboard in regulating gun sales.

It’s about damn time

The AMA to fight Congress over guns:

The largest medical organization in the United States, the American Medical Association, passed a historic resolution last night in response to the weekend’s mass shooting. After years of tiptoeing around the topic of gun control, AMA leaders voted to officially call gun violence a public health issue — and respond accordingly. That means flexing the organization’s powerful political muscle on Capitol Hill to refocus federal funds toward studying gun violence.

To see this through, however, Congress would need to lift a 20-year-old ban that blocks the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from funding any research related to gun violence. But the AMA, with one of the largest political lobbying budgets of any organization in the U.S., appears ready to fight.

“Even as America faces a crisis unrivaled in any other developed country, the Congress prohibits the CDC from conducting the very research that would help us understand the problems associated with gun violence and determine how to reduce the high rate of firearm-related deaths and injuries,” said AMA President Dr. Steven Stack, in a written statement.

“An epidemiological analysis of gun violence is vital so physicians and other health providers, law enforcement and society at large may be able to prevent injury, death and other harms to society resulting from firearms,” he added.

Like the statistic that 30% of domestic terrorists were guilty of domestic violence first.
