Pennsylvania: Legislation Introduced to Improve Concealed Carry License Application System

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

This week, state Senator Rich Alloway (R-33) introduced legislation, Senate Bill 1071, that seeks to improve the current concealed carry license application system by allowing an individual to apply for a concealed carry permit in a contiguous county.

If passed and enacted into law, this legislation would establish a more user-friendly system for applicants.  Under the current application process, individuals often have to travel out of their way to apply for a License to Carry Firearms in only the county in which they reside.  SB 1071 would give individuals the option to apply for a license through a Sheriff or Chief of Police in a neighboring county.
