PA: Is the Pottsville City Council Smoking Pot? They Decided to Victimize Crime Victims

Has the Pottsville City Council been smoking something that has damaged their brains beyond repair? A couple of days ago they passed a new ordinance that makes it illegal to not report your guns stolen within 24 hours of the theft.

“Unfortunately, sometimes you have to pass rules to make stupid people make the right decisions,” Councilman Dave Eckert, who believes the new law will act as a deterrent to illegal gun traffickers, said Monday.
I have this response to Councilman Dave Eckert's above comment: "Unfortunately sometimes members of the city council make the wrong decisions to pass stupid laws." Illegal gun traffickers are already doing something illegal - making it more illegal to do something illegal will not reduce crime, but it will create new victims by turning law abiding citizens into criminals & throwing them in jail for up to 90 days.

Perhaps when he & his fellow council members loose their next election they will finally understand that passing laws that victimize crime victims a second time by turning them into criminals themselves is nothing but idiocy.

Well, I suppose that's sure as hell gonna bother those of us gun owners gthat don't feel the "need" to check where we last placed our guns EVERY SINGLE DAY.

If you're not could be GUILTY?

WTF is wrong with these people????

If my house is trashed beyond recognition due to a burglary, checking for my guns and reporting them stolen WILL be on my short list...but I WILL have some other things to address insurance (and we all know how long THAT can take).

What a crock...and from PA of all places.
I can';t believ it of them.
I've been up around there many times...
They're not even a pimple on any city's butt!
They MUST be inhaling when they go and destroy the "evidence"...!
