Yes.

Val asserted that it was the recent revision to the CD law which made it illegal to resist an arrest known (or reasonably believed) to be illegal. I was under the impression that that was already illegal in PA.

I can't see the logic behind resisting arrest where the PC is believed to be improper, to have ever been legal. I share your curiosity.

Common law allowed for self-defense in such situations, at least when the arrest was absolutely and obviously illegal. Consequences of arrest were typically higher in terms of life and limb in history too, so there's that.

Most states have statutorily prohibited defense against agents of the state, even during outright illegal conduct by them, for a while now. Prior to those statutes though it is my understanding that, under common law, it was entirely legal.

I am certain that Pennsylvania already prohibited the use of force against law enforcement before Act 10 of 2011 (castle doctrine expansion). Act 10 simply went with current law and expanded it a bit, as far as I am aware.

Was it Indiana that recently passed a law giving people authority to use lethal force against police in certain situations?

[quote=middlefinger;48075]
[quote]NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his infamous "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" have struck again—this time with a conference call where he proclaimed the recent presidential elections "proved" the NRA is dying and the American people want more gun control.

Did Bloomberg miss the Black Friday sales of a week ago—where gun sales shattered the last Black Friday guns sales record by 20%?

Or did he miss Louisiana's Nov. 6 pro-gun constitutional amendment, where the citizens of that state made it absolutely clear that the 2nd Amendment is a fundamental right which is hands off to gun grabbers?

Or maybe he overlooked the fact that people responded to the Colorado Theater shooting not by calling for more gun control but by arming themselves?

He also missed the reports that the Brady Bunch is out of money and about to close up shop, or limited to volunteer staff only.
