PA:East Rockhill amends gun laws

East Rockhill Township has removed a rule barring firearms from parks and other township-owned property and replaced it with language acknowledging the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act, not the municipality, sets the rules.

“It ties the carrying and use of firearms to the state law,” Patrick Armstrong, East Rockhill’s solicitor, said.

The change comes after a resident raised the issue, the East Rockhill Township Board of Supervisors said at the April 16 township meeting.

Many other towns have made a similar change, board member David Nyman said.

“The NRA has asked their members to check with the municipalities to make sure they’re in compliance,” Nyman said.
