Judge blocks new Philly gun laws

Fox News reports:

PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia judge has temporarily blocked the violence-plagued city from enforcing its new gun-control laws.

Common Pleas Judge Jane Cutler Greenspan is granting the National Rifle Association's request Thursday to keep the ordinances from taking effect right away. The NRA argues that Pennsylvania law prevents municipalities from regulating guns.

Philadelphia has seen nearly a gun killing per day this year. The new rules would require gun owners to report the theft or loss of a gun within 24 hours. They also would ban possessing or selling assault weapons and set a limit of one gun purchase per month.

The first of the ordinances was to take effect next month. Hearings on the issue are set for April 28.
