East Coast Metropolis Now Regulating Crossbows and BB Guns

Also of note: Booby traps are now illegal in Pittsburgh as well.

With the liberal end of American politics seemingly hellbent on the neutering of the Second Amendment, the rest of the nation must remain vigilant to these infringements in all of their forms.

Some of these unconstitutional maneuvers are easy to spot, as they are often reactionary, emotional responses to a short and horrific event that claims perhaps dozens of lives.

Let’s not forget that the Second Amendment was constructed as a reaction as well, but the impetus of this right was the Revolutionary War – an event whose scale has no contemporary, modern equivalent, and mustn’t be downplayed as akin to violence of mentally unstable young men in America, New Zealand, or Europe today.

Still, those who oppose the right to bear arms continue their shady charade, not only targeting the weapons used in some of the darker events in modern history, but, apparently, any decide that even resembles a gun.

Take Pittsburgh, for example, whose leaders just enacted sweeping legislation that affects longbows, booby traps, and BB guns.

NBC News reports that the legislation “[makes] it illegal to ‘use’ an assault weapon in a public place.” And YourErie reports that the gun controls also prohibit the public discharge of long bows, compound bows, recurve bows, and crossbows. The laws also prohibit the public discharge of BB guns.

The legislation sets an outright prohibition on the possession of certain weapons within the city. Those include:

  • Anti-tank guns
  • Bazookas
  • Bomb
  • Booby traps
  • Flamethrowers
  • Grenades
  • Mines
  • Mortar shells

The bill came as a reactionary move after the Squirrel Hill synagogue shooting that took place in October of 2018.
