    I had high hopes that when Nutter took over as the new Mayor that things would be different. I guess there is no hope at all. Build a huge toilet and flush the whole city down the Delaware. This would save Pa countless billions of dollars. And if we're lucky Gov Rendall would be flushed along too. len w..

    Excerpt from CBS News:

    "...Mayor Nutter took an unusual step of ordering immediate enforcement of the bills only hours after City Council passed them. The measures, approved unanimously, include a limit on handgun purchases to one per month and a requirement that any lost or stolen gun be reported to police. It also includes a ban on certain assault weapons and would allow police to confiscate guns from any person an officer considers to be a risk to themselves or others. The laws also include a prohibition of guns to people with Protection From Abuse orders."

    According to Philadelphia sources, the one-gun limit takes effect in 6 months, not immediately.

    Such a challenge will most likely not materialize until someone who can afford an attorney is arrested under one of the 5 statutes and challenges the constitutionality of the law they were arrested under.
