As our viewers are aware, I was successful in securing a monumental victory in September of 2019, when the Commonwealth Court, en banc, in Firearm Owners Against Crime (FOAC), et al., v. City of Harrisburg, et al., overruled its prior precedent and held that it was “untenable” to require a plaintiff to declare in a complaint that he/she has violated or been prosecuted for an enacted ordinance in order to challenge the ordinance. Thereafter, the City of Harrisburg petitioned the PA Supreme Court to review the decision and in April of this year, the PA Supreme Court agreed to hear the question of
Whether the Commonwealth Court’s decision to grant Plaintiffs, who have not been cited under the City of Harrisburg ‘s gun control ordinances and for whom any harm is remote and hypothetical, individual and associational standing to challenge the City of Harrisburg’s gun control ordinances, directly conflicts with this Court’s jurisprudence
