Federal Judge Rules in Favor of Pennsylvania Young Adults

A federal court house

On April 26, Federal District Court Judge, William S. Stickman, enjoined the Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner from enforcing the state law that bans 18-to-20-year-old adults from carrying a firearm outside of the home for self-defense during a state of emergency.

The order was issued in the case, known as Lara v. Evanchick, brought by both the Firearms Policy Coalition, Inc. (FPC) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF).

“History and legal precedent plainly show that these types of age-based bans are completely unconstitutional. This latest FPC victory is a significant step towards restoring the right to keep and bear arms throughout the United States,” said FPC founder and President Brandon Combs.

As we previously reported, in January, a three-judge panel, led by Judge Kent A. Jordan, reversed and remanded the lower Court’s ruling against plaintiffs.

Subsequently, on March 27, a petition for a rehearing by the State was summarily denied.
