    None-the-less, PA will still issue to non-residents. It just cannot be done through the mail.
    A Democrat by the name of Lentz is spear heading a stop to out of state permits like Florida & Utah.
    Yes, which is the topic of this entire thread.
    I do see PA getting harder with residents obtaining a LTC in the near future.
    Why?

    You live in a small hick town it is very easy to obtain a PA LTC WHY? because you don't live in a big city with liberal anti-gun people running the show.From being a gun friendly state to a restrictive state.What happened with that soccer mom who was trying to get attention on national TV with carrying a G26 in public view.The Sheriff took her permit away until she got it back because she hired a good lawyer.It became a debacle because she was shot dead in her own home by her husband.Her Glock was not on her she wasn't properly trained that is now causing the state to look at placing more restrictive measures.Philly residents obtain a Utah non resident because it doesn't require a handgun permit.The thread deals with PA now Sir you got donkeypunched thats why!

    She got her LTCF back because the sheriff had no legitimate reason to revoke it.

    I live in a Philly suburb and dont have any problems getting my LTCF...certainly not a small hick town.

    Philly residents obtain FL/UT licenses because Philly PD revokes and denies for reasons that are not legitimate reasons.

    to the OP...the vote on June 8 was tabled...as the committee has some "issues with the wording". Good news, right? Almost. It was added to the calendar again for a vote on June 15!


    ETA : See another thread about this bill here
    North Dakota did the same thing last year, with having to apply and test in person. I tried to get one before then, but all of their certified "trainers" either did not return my call or denied me because I am not law enforcement.

    Just a prediction, but in a worse case scenario, the bill should get voted down in the Senate, given that there is still a republican majority there. They were the ones that the Dems liked to blame for not passing the Governors "big spender" budget the past few years.

    PA is a shall issue state unless you live in Philly.

    A few things you should know if you wish to produce relevant, constructive dialogue...
    1. Small "hick town" or big city, it matters not because PA has a preemption clause, meaning localities may not impose their own criteria for licensing (among other things). It may be true that in practice Philadelphia goes their own way, but they do so in violation of state law.
    2. "That soccer mom" (She has a name, it's Meleanie Hain) OCing in a public park, and the way in which she died have nothing to do with the topic of this thread.
    3. (As noted by mrjam) Philly residents get UT or FL permits because the Philly PD disregards state law.
    4. The topic of this thread is specifically HB2536. It is not, however, about non-residents obtaining PA permits. They are two separate issues.
    5. Donkey punched? That's cute, and so intellectual. Do us all a favor. If you have relevant content to add, such as any new developments on HB2536 (which may be as soon as tomorrow), then by all means post it. Otherwise do us the favor of not cluttering up yet another thread with irrelevant and immature drivel.

    Nothing irrelevant or immature....I'm just pointing out the fact that PA is indeed headed in a direction which is similar to practice with other states by not issuing permits when the law allows it.As you clearly stated this is about HB2536 nothing else matters.What should be said is that all resident and non resident PA LTC holders should be aware of the new changes.It all matters from the soccer mom to the knucklehead who had his PA LTC revolked and was still able to carry a gun with his Florida CCW.

  9. Has HB2536 in fact passed? It was my understanding that it was still in committee and rescheduled for June 15 (by a post on here not on the PA website).

    And what of the supreme court's recent decision that the state's shall not infringe on the individual right of people to keep and to bear arms that recently passed?

    Where do we stand right now?

    TGG it looks like it is still in committee.... The Pennsylvania General Assembly
    Semper Fi

  11. If we all pool our resources and take the time to email, fax, write, visit (without the gun), etc., perhaps we can kill this thing in committee before it hits the floor. DO NOT wait for the other guy to do something. This requires a concerted effort. Why? Because it is the thin end of the wedge as they say. If we allow this nonsense to go through we open the door a little wider for all of the other nonsense to get through.

    And what of the recent SCOTUS decision removing the power of the states to modify the 2nd and 14th. amendments that was recently passed through SCOTUS?

    FEDERAL law already sets prohibitors that eliminate the right of felons, whackos, druggies and such from owning or possessing firearms legally and set rules for the purchase of firearms. All we need now is a 'universal reciprocity law' at the federal level, as the universal reciprocity of drivers licenses and all of the confusion dissipates, no?
