Pa. county: New gun laws won't apply here

Published: Thu, February 28, 2013 @ 11:50 a.m.

MONTROSE, Pa. (AP) — Commissioners in a rural Pennsylvania county have passed a resolution saying any new laws restricting gun rights won’t apply there.

The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports Susquehanna County officials say new gun laws passed just over the state line in New York prompted them to act. The resolution passed Wednesday says any new federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that infringes on Second Amendment rights shall be “unenforceable” in the county.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently signed legislation that restricts residents to purchasing ammunition magazines that carry seven bullets.

Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco says the county’s resolution is an important statement to make in response to the New York laws and current proposals in Pennsylvania. No one at the meeting came out in opposition to the resolution.

Who'd have thought the impending civil war will be about guns and gun rights? I guess we now know what's important enough to people to get them active and, pardon the pun, up in arms.

Obama and the Brady Bunch should step carefully.
