HARRISBURG — Flanked by police officers and mayors, Gov. Ed Rendell today called on Congress to enact a federal assault weapons ban and for the state Legislature to revisit gun control measures that failed to win support in 2003.
[efoods]In response to the fatal shooting of three Pittsburgh police officers on April 4, Rendell said it’s time to reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004. Richard Poplawski, 22, armed with an AK-47 and two other guns, is accused of killing officers Eric Kelly, 41, Stephen Mayhle, 29, and Paul Sciullo II, 36.
“These weapons have absolutely no purpose except to kill. They can’t be used for sport. They can’t be used for hunting,” Rendell said.
Rendell later acknowledged “this might not be the right time” when asked about a Newsweek report that President Barack Obama’s domestic agenda is more focused on the economy and health care. Rendell said U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.., is prepared to move forward with a ban.”She’ll choose the right time,” he said.
