Councilman Clarke introduced a bill calling for a Citywide referendum that would give voters the opportunity to decide whether to amend the City Charter to permit Philadelphia to make its own laws to prevent and reduce gun violence (see story). Presently, all such laws are enacted by the State Legislature. The Councilman's bill calls for corresponding state legislation to complement any potential charter change. America's Hometown unequivocally supports any efforts to permit Philadelphia to enact gun laws different (and more stringent) than elsewhere in the state.
