Philadelphia Safety committee OKs gun-control legislation
Philadelphia City Council took a big step closer to a court fight with the state on gun control. The Council's Committee on Public Safety approved legislation to limit handgun purchases to one a month; require owners to report lost or stolen guns to police; allow police to confiscate guns from people considered a risk to themselves or others; require a license from police to bring a gun into the city; ban semiautomatic weapons with clips that hold more than 10 rounds; and establish a registry for ammunition sales. That legislation, introduced by Councilman Darrell Clarke, could be approved on Thursday.
