Do you mean first class mobsters? I'd agree with that! I've never been as scared as I was the night my wife and I decided to have spaghetti at the restaurant Sylvester Stallone ate at, and on the street he ran in "Rocky". Mercy! Some serious gangsters stared dead at us every minute we were in there. We definitely felt "out of place". I was only too happy to "get outta' there"!
I don't mean to take the thread off track. Sorry!
Thanks, Rabbi! This helps. I haven't lived in PA since 1963.rabbivj said:There are four classifications of cities as defined by the state based on their populations. The classes are:
* First Class Cities - Cities with populations over one million are considered to be first class. This class of city is governed by an elected mayor and a city council which is made up of members representing various neighborhoods. Philadelphia is the only city in Pennsylvania in this class.
* Second Class Cities - Pittsburgh with a population over 250,000 is the only officially designated second class city.
* Second Class A Cities - This is a special designation for cities with populations between 80,000 and 250,000 whose voters opt to adopt this classification. So far, Scranton is the only city in the state that falls in this category.
* Third Class Cities - All of the remaining 53 cities with populations below 250,000 are classified as third-class cities.
Woah! My, doesn't my assuming sneak up and bite me on the butt! I had assumed that since he was a good conservative Republican, as well as a Christian, that he would be among those with common sense on 2nd Amendment issues. Boy was I WRONG!

He did start making noise about supporting gun rights as the governors election approached. If he doesn't stick by those promises, I hope he gets voted out on his ear next go round.
The opinion, authored by Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, noted that if the state preemption law was not enforced, â€œlaw-abiding gun owners would face a confusing patchwork of licensing requirements, possession restrictions and criminal penalties as they travel from one jurisdiction to another.â€ In other words if you lived in the suburbs of Cleveland and had to travel into the city, despite protections you enjoy as a citizen of Ohio, these rights would be curtailed as you crossed the city limits.
