Philly and Pittsburgh mayors: We need state and federal gun reform, not local preemption

The mayors of Pennsylvania's two largest cities cosigned an opinion piece that appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer today:

"We refuse to stand by as our children are put through active-shooter training, our parents and grandparents cannot safely enter houses of worship, and people of all ages are taken from us too soon because some legislators refuse to stand up to the gun lobby. Laws should not be written by and on behalf of the gun manufacturing industry, and strictly for their profit. This is not normal, and we cannot accept it."
