    Concealed Carry Under Attack in Pennsylvania!

    Please Contact the Members of the House Judiciary Committee Immediately!

    On Tuesday, June 8, the House Judiciary Committee will consider legislation restricting the recognition of reciprocity agreements for “concealed carry” license holders in Pennsylvania.

    House Bill 2536, introduced by State Representative Brian Lentz (D-161), would prohibit a resident of the Commonwealth from carrying a concealed firearm with a license issued from another state.

    This legislation is the first step in an outright attack on your concealed carry rights in Pennsylvania. HB2536 poses a very real and serious threat to our rights so it is imperative that you make your voice heard.

    Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose HB2536. Contact information for the committee can be found by clicking here.

    I think I see the issue there in red...

    Looks like I'll be sending more emails tomorrow. Spent lunch today sending emails to all MA reps and senators about House bill 4102 here in MA... I think the liberal left fears NO_vember and thinks "better screw things up now"..

    I sent him a message and asked him to answer my question. I'll post any reply I get.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    This stems from the nonsense going on in Philly. (Lentz is from Delaware county, just outside of Philly.) Basically, the Philly PD is abusive in their practices regarding carry permits. Most of it goes against PA's Uniform Firearms Code, but they could care less. So, many Philly residents are forced to acquire a Fl, VA, or UT permit. I'm not sure why they are targeting FL and not VA or UT, other than the fact that the issuing agency in FL is their dept. of agriculture. None-the-less, I would like to see statistics on the crime rate of these FL permit holders compared to PA permit holders. I'd imagine they are fairly consistent. BTW, PA law requires NO training for a permit. $25, a BG check, and your I.D., and you have a permit in about a week. And they're criticizing FL?!

    utimmer43 - Thanks for your post as now I understand the problem. At first I thought it was crazy as the PA permit is the one that at lease SC residents are getting now that NH has raised their prices. I see the problem is that in states where the issuing of permints is a local deal rather controlled by the state it can be a problem for certain area residents. In SC the State (SLED) issues all permits on a shall issue basis but they do have to notify the local Sheriff for him to sign off on it (most let it default after 7 days). This does add some delay in getting a permit but all parts of the state are treated equally unfair and makes it hard for one Sheriff to build his little empire.

    I found out about this too late to call my Rep. Anyone know how the vote went in the Judiciary committee?

  7. PA is not going to be issuing permits by mail starting in 2011.Utah & Florida is a popular choice .That is sad that PA is going to be like NY that only isues to residents only.

    Yes .... No

    New system will "require" applying in person application


    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

    It looks like it may head that way.I do see PA getting harder with residents obtaining a LTC in the near future.Centre County was very simple for an out of state resident who needed a permit.The Centre county permit is just a plain piece of paper with no photo.BTW Centre county doesn't check to verify the character refrences.I know that may be a cause for concern as to why people were getting a permit with in a matter of days of applying.The Sheriff of Pike county was the head of making the new change.He wanted to improve the system by stopping mail in applicaions .He want's a non resident to produce a valid home I.D.with permit in person and return to PA when the permit is ready and sign it.I still go in person every 5 years to Milford PA the girls in the office are very nice.

    From the news, they interviewed Danny Nau of Centre county.He said that he is sorry to see that system go because it created revenue.It was no surprise to see that happening because it was already voted in back in 2005 for the state to go to a more secure backround check which eliminates the mail in license.You must apply in person and provide a valid I.D. with a cocealed permit from your home state.You have to return in person to sign and a photo is taken.A Democrat by the name of Lentz is spear heading a stop to out of state permits like Florida & Utah.
