Mayor Kenney calls on state lawmakers to allow Philly to pass firearm restrictions

Mayor Jim Kenney urged the Pennsylvania state legislature to allow Philadelphia to enact its own gun regulations as the city approached its 500th homicide of the year, a mark that will tie the record set in 1990. The city is barred from passing its own firearm restrictions by the state’s preemption laws, which were passed in the 1970s.
