Pa. high court upholds Phila. gun ordinance

Posted: June 10, 2010

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has upheld a Philadelphia ordinance that requires handgun owners to report lost or stolen firearms to police.

The ruling, issued Monday, also upheld restrictions on gun possession by people subject to a domestic violence order and those ruled to be a danger to themselves or others.

The high court, in a one-page order, let stand two lower court rulings that allowed such ordinances. The National Rifle Association appealed to the Supreme Court. - Robert Moran
