Does Pa. Need A 'Bradley Fox Act?'
Would stronger gun laws have prevented the Plymouth Township policeman's death?
Does the September shooting death of Plymouth Township Police Officer Bradley Fox — apparently at the hands of a convicted felon who illicitly obtained legally-purchased firearms through a third party — demonstrate the need for tougher gun purchase laws in Pennsylvania?
In an editorial published Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer argued that it does.
In calling on state legislators to pass a "Bradley Fox Act" that would place limits on firearm purchases and criminalize the failure to report a lost or stolen gun, the newspaper said Fox's killing "exposes the true cost of Harrisburg's refusal to pass even modest gun control measures."
