[efoods]As the G-20 Summit nears, Pittsburgh City Council is considering the possibility of instituting an assault weapons ban during the high-profile event.
According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, city officials are talking about reviving an old law that would ban those types of weapons.
If approved, the ban would likely be in effect until after the G-20 Summit ends.
City council members are expected to consider the assault weapons ban today along with many other pieces of legislation during a special session on the G-20 Summit.
