    I assert that there's nothing in the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act (nor in caselaw) requiring a person who has become ineligible for a License to Carry Firearms to inform the issuing authority. If you think you can show otherwise then do so.

    The AG's office doesn't make law, they prosecute crimes. The fact that someone there told you something doesn't particularly mean anything. Unfortunately law enforcement personnel are frequently terrible sources of information about laws. There are shelves of law books filled with cases in which courts have found that prosecutors misstated or misinterpreted relevant laws. A verbal opinion obtained in a phone call to some random person in the AG's office is only slightly more authoritative than "my best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night."

    Anyway, I agree that if the issuing authority becomes aware of a license-holder's ineligibility during the term of the license that state law requires the authority to revoke the license, but there's no requirement to inform the issuing authority of the fact that one has become ineligible.
