Today, another Amici Curiae brief was submitted in the matter of City of Harrisburg, et al., v. U.S. Law Shield of Pennsylvania, LLC, et al., 449 C.D. 2015 by the Allegheny County Sportsmen’s League, American Gun Owners Alliance, Firearm Owners Against Crime, Gun Owners of America/Gun Owners Foundation, Lehigh Valley Tea Party, Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, Pennsylvanians For Self Protection, Pennsylvania State Fish & Game Protective Association, and Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania.
The Amici, in addition to incorporating the arguments of the Amici Curiae Members of the General Assembly, also raise arguments relating to 1. field preemption for discharge; 2. a violation of 18 Pa.C.S. 6120 being a criminal act, which constitutes official oppression; and 3. that the City should be barred under the Unclean Hands doctrine.
I would like to thank those organizations and Attorney James Smith for standing strong and in steadfast devotion to the protection of Article 1, Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with the Amici Curiae Members of the General Assembly. Together, we will ensure that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms will not be infringed and that the City of Harrisburg will be held accountable for its unlawful and illegal actions.
