Pittsburgh approves new gun control legislation

The Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday approved new gun control legislation that will place restrictions on the use of military-style assault weapons, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
The legislation would ban the use assault weapons like the AR-15 rifle, which authorities say was used in the Oct. 27 massacre at Tree of Life Synagogue that killed 11 and wounded several others.
It would also ban the use armor-piercing ammunition and high-capacity magazines, as well as allow the temporary seizure of guns from people who are determined to be dangerous to themselves or others, the Post-Gazette reported.
The paper noted that the legislation is expected to face court challenges from pro-gun advocates who say they’ll sue to block the laws from taking effect, citing Pennsylvania state law that forbids municipalities from regulating guns.
