Let me tell you how Township Attorney Steven Siana places the Township
at risk of a very expensive lawsuit.
Mr. Siana produced, delivered and collected payment for an ordinance
pertaining to the use of the Township building which was adopted on
October 13, 2014. The entire ordinance is linked here but
below is the section in question.
West Vincent Township Building Use Policy:
Rules of Conduct
"The following rules of
conduct shall apply to the public’s use of the Township building:
d. Possession or use of
fireworks, firearms, rockets, explosives, or weapons is prohibited."
This is clearly against the law in Pennsylvania. Townships do not have
the ability to restrict anyone from the legal possession of a firearm,
period. see § 6120.
"Limitation on the
regulation of firearms and ammunition.
(a) General rule.--No
county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful
ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms,
ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for
purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth."

Please do not consider this email as a pro-gun or anti-gun argument.
This is simply about the law and those that are paid well to know the
law and paid to research what they do not know. If the West Vincent
ordinance gets challenged, Steve Siana once again makes money trying to
defend an illegal ordinance, created by Steve Siana. Remember, this is
Ken Miller's (Supervisor for 24 years) personal attorney.
Election Day is May 19, one month away. Stop the wasting of the
taxpayers money. It goes on far too often in West Vincent Township. The
citizens of West Vincent deserve better representation. Vote Mike
Schneider for Supervisor.
