FICG Files Letter on Behalf of ACSL and FOAC in Response to Pittsburgh’s Unlawful Signage Erected Before Second Amendment Rally

Today, in advance of the Second Amendment Rally in Pittsburgh scheduled for Monday, January 7th, Firearms Industry Consulting Group® (FICG®), a division of Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., on behalf of its clients, Allegheny County Sportsmen’s League and Firearm Owners Against Crime (FOAC), filed a letter in relation to the unlawful signage that has been erected by the City Council in advance of the Rally; wherein, Chief Counsel Joshua Prince explains the erected signage violates 18 Pa.C.S. § 913(d) and 18 Pa.C.S. § 6120.

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls.jpgIn the event Pittsburgh fails to remove or otherwise correct the signs, ACSL and FOAC are prepared to take legal action against the City. As our viewers are likely aware, ACSL and FOAC already stated their intent to take legal action if any of the unlawful firearm ordinances that have been proposed are enacted by City Council and the Mayor.

If you are in a position to be able to support these matters, ACSL and FOAC would greatly appreciate donations, which can be made online through the Firm’s escrow account here – Simply place “ACSL/FOAC Pittsburgh Preemption Litigation” in the reference box.

  1. I challenged the constitutionality of 18 Pa.C.S. § 913 in Pa. trial and appellate courts. No national, state, or local advocacy group supported me directly or indirectly (to my knowledge), despite solicitations. No such similar person or group filed briefs as friend of the court. The NRA only after the fact bemoaned my appellate court loss generally, and ACSL and FOAC only occasionally excerpted newspaper articles about my related cases.

    As a citizen for whom ignorance of the law shall be no excuse, I have been monitoring and investigating the development of this area of law (arms, search and seizure, prohibitions, regulations, and separations of power) for over 10 years. I have been a victim of this poorly-drafted, ACSL-guided 1995/1996 legislation. I have been for over a decade trying to eliminate the unreasonable and thus unlawful warrantless, suspicionless stops and searches, which go without express legislative designation, as well as trying to auditing and and attempting to correct the nearly universal noncompliance with provisions of sec. 913 (were it constitutional.) I can take anyone on a field trip to show just how deliquent our public servants have been in pursuit of faithful execution of the laws.

    I have believed that I have been taking up this task largely on my own. It is nice to see Joshua Prince, FICG, FOAC, and ACSL taking on abuses of those Acts of Assembly. I, however, believe that the acts of nonfeasance and malfeasance involved in noncompliance with and abuse of 18 Pa.C.S. § 913 are subject to criminal prosecution.

    I enjoy speaking with others about the criminal and civil prosecution of misbehavers-in-office, particularly regarding the topics of: evidence-gathering and complaint-writing, being persistent in the face of potential retaliation, court review in the criminal complaint process, and multi-faceted political-pressures planning. In the past, I have litigated review of a private criminal complaint against a county sheriff for operating an unlawful warrantless, suspicionless checkpoint, and I have obtained an order from a judge demanding that an elected district attorney act upon a criminal complaint against herself. Because restraining criminal misconduct is the province of all citizens, knowing about these tools is important for more than merely lawyers and law enforcement officers.
