If you are a Pennsylvania resident who is carrying a concealed firearm for self-defense with a non-resident Florida Concealed Carry permit, your permit will be invalid in 120 days.
Delivering on her anti-gun campaign promises last year, Attorney General Kathleen Kane issued a notice today that requires Pennsylvania residents, who currently carry a firearm on a non-resident Florida permit, to obtain a Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearm (LCTF) in order to be allowed to carry in state.
The top state law enforcement officer should not be making policy -- the job of state legislators in Harrisburg -- and simply enforcing the law enacted by the Pennsylvania General Assembly. If Kane wanted to be a lawmaker, she should have run for an office other than Attorney General.
If you are one of the 4,000 individuals who carry in Pennsylvania with a non-resident Florida permit, you have until June 8, 2013 before your permit is invalid. If you wish to continue carrying a firearm for self-defense in Pennsylvania, you must obtain a Pennsylvania LCTF.
Your NRA is disappointed, but not shocked, by Kathleen Kane bypassing the Pennsylvania General Assembly to implement her anti-gun agenda. To voice your opposition to this notice, you can contact the Pennsylvania Attorney General at 717-787-3391 or by submitting an e-mail via this on-line form.
