West Bend, WI - Pittsburgh City Council voted 6-3 to break Pennsylvania law and approve a host of gun restrictions on the city.USCCA President and Founder Tim Schmidt joined host John Steigerwald on the John Steigerwald show on Pittsburgh's AM1250 The Answer to discuss the issue.

Schmidt said, "This is a ridiculous, knee-jerk, illegal legislation that ultimately is going to have the opposite effect it's not going to make anyone safer, if anything it could embolden criminals! I've got a question for the City Council, do they really think criminals are going to follow these ridiculous laws?"

"All this law does is discourage responsible people, who know right from wrong, to be able to defend themselves."
