Penn Gov. Tom Corbett signs a pro-gun law barring local restrictions
The bill specifically would prevent local governments from passing gun laws that are more restrictive than the state gun laws and basically erases existing local gun laws.
The bill signing could rally support from gun owners for Corbett in the final stretch of his campaign where he trails Democratic candidate Tom Wolf by double digits in most recent polls.
The National Rifle Association called the bill, “the strongest firearms preemption statute in the country.” . . .
