Philly's gun control measures rejected by courts

Awesome.  Basically, the Soviet of Philly tried to pass a bunch of gun control laws and an spooky lookin' weapons ban, even though they knew and pretty much acknowledged they were in direct violation of PA gun laws, which Philly has to abide by.  The courts unceremoniously smacked Philly down.  Apparently this isn't the first time the Soviet of Philly has tried this.

Something I've also wondered is if one of the "reasonable" gun control measures the Democrats are thinking of is a federal measure that would allow cities to set their own policies.  This would mean the federal law would override the state laws and give places like Philly the go-ahead to undermine Constitutional rights.
