How much power does the government claim on private land?
“Unfettered,” according to a Commonwealth Court decision in a case pitting the Pennsylvania Game Commission against two private gun clubs.
On Sept. 29, a court ruled against two hunting clubs in their lawsuit accusing the Game Commission of private property rights violations.
In its ruling, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania noted the government’s absolute power to “roam private land without consent, warrants or probable cause.”
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court said “possessions” do not include private land.
