Pennsylvania Gun Laws and How They Differ From Pittsburgh's

By    |   Sunday, 16 Nov 2014 09:43 PM

Pittsburgh is among the cities suing the state of Pennsylvania over a new law aimed at protecting statewide Pennsylvania gun laws.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a constitutional provision that requires gun laws are standard throughout the state, according to the Philadelphia City Paper. However, rules in Pittsburgh have some distinctively different regulations.

City codes that are tighter than statewide Pennsylvania gun laws include:

S607.03: This statute makes it illegal to fire a gun anywhere within city limit, except at a firing range.

S607.04: This statute makes it illegal to fire toy air guns except on private property with consent of the owner.

S607.07: It is illegal to even display a fake firearm if the intent of the display is to intimidate people.

S607.09 – S607.11: Identification is required in order to buy ammunition. The buyer has to be over 18 and the seller must record the name, address and telephone number of the person buying the ammunition.

S624.01: Anyone whose firearm is lost or stolen is required to report it to the police within 24 hours of the gun going missing. If owners do not comply they could be fined up to $500 for a first offense.

S912.05c: A person cannot sell firearms out of their home.
