  1. Josh thanks again for being our Superman.

    I hope all gun owners take note of the 800+ demonstrators we brought to bear on city council, the 100+ people that spoke in the meetings, and of course the tireless work of yourself, Kim, and others.

    We do not have to accept these violations of the PA Constitution and our laws. We need to make these kind of actions political suicide for future politicians.


  2. Once again just tremendous news and hard work done by the Prince Law Firm. Many thanks and congratulations on your efforts to protect the 2nd Amendment.


  3. Question now is, using “Everytown” money will they appeal it again? This isn’t costing them anything I don’t believe.
