Act 192 of 2014 made major changes to the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act by significantly expanding standing to sue under the original law and by arguably increasing the scope of preemption of local municipal gun regulation.
Critical Issues, Engaging Discussion
The important issues that this new legislation raises are being litigated in the Pennsylvania courts right now. The changes to the Uniform Firearms Act and the courts’ interpretation of those changes, including a June 2015 decision of the Commonwealth Court striking down Act 192 as unconstitutional, have implications for every municipality in Pennsylvania, for the General Assembly, and for stakeholders on all sides of the gun control debate.
Attend to brush up on preemption law and then be treated to an engaging panel discussion from our distinguished faculty, including members of the General Assembly who voted on Act 192 and attorneys representing parties on both sides of the litigation in state and federal court. Every municipal solicitor needs to be informed about these important developments.
