Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | LOCAL GUN REGS State firearms laws take precedence Opponents of the gun-ban measure need to understand that it is already illegal for localities to pass gun regulations under the state's preemption rules ("Gun-law bill may have big impact," Oct. 22). Those haven't stopped Pennsylvania municipalities from doing just that, and they have been openly flouting the law for quite some time, with little consequence.
I HAVE READ with interest the coverage of your state Supreme Court, as I have long had concerns regarding the behavior of judicial officials, especially at such a high level.
