Pennsylvania PICS Shut Down for Upgrade

Friday, August 17, 2007

The Pennsylvania State Police have notified us of its intent to shut down the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) from 6:00 PM Sunday, September 2, until 12:00 noon on Thursday, September 6.  While we understand and appreciate the need to upgrade the system’s hardware and software, we believe any maintenance should be done during non-business hours so that it does not inconvenience or interfere with a law-abiding citizen’s right to purchase a firearm. 

NRA is working with the Pennsylvania State Police, members of the State Legislature, and the Attorney General to resolve this matter.
