NRA Files Response In Gun Ordinance Suit

The National Rifle Association has filed a response the city of Pittsburgh's motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed against it by the NRA.In the response the NRA claims that the lawsuit can not be dismissed because gun rights do not end once a gun has been lost or stolen. Attorney for the NRA Meghan Jones-Rolla said that not only is the ordinance flawed but it also supersedes state law. Jones-Rolla added that she is not concerned with a recent Commonwealth Court decision that found the NRA didn't have standing to challenge a Philadelphia ordinance similar to Pittsburgh's because unlike the Philadelphia lawsuit one of the plaintiffs in this case has had a gun stolen so he has been affected by the ordinance.
