PA Gun Dealer Agrees to Monitoring

As part of a settlement in a lawsuit brought by the City of New York a Stroudsburg area gun dealer agreed to sales monitoring. Dunkelberger's Sports Outfitters was sued because many of the guns it sold wound up being used in crimes in NYC and confiscated by police. Criminals take advantage of Pennsylvania's lax gun laws to "straw purchase" guns for criminals. Other people buy numerous guns at once then sell them on the streets in New York, Philadelphia and elsewhere.

Limiting sales to one gun per month per person could go a long way toward making our streets safer. This Tuesday there will be a large demonstration in Harrisburg by advocates of gun safety. Twenty five buses of people are going to descend on the capitol to demand action.
