Pennsylvania State Constitutional Provision states: “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.”

The process for obtaining an License To Carry a Firearm (LTCF) in Pennsylvania is good due to the fact that the process is very thorough in making sure that permits are not granted to people that may be irresponsible or pose a danger to others (minors, convicted felons, domestic abusers, etc.) while making it very simple for trustworthy and law-abiding citizens to obtain with relative ease.

An individual who is 21 years of age or older may apply for a license to carry firearms by submitting a completed Application for a Pennsylvania “License to Carry Firearms” to the sheriff of the county in which they reside or if a resident of a city of the first class, with the chief of police of that city along with the required fee.

While Pennsylvania has a specific law that requires a License To Carry Firearms for the concealed carry of a firearm, and the carry of firearms in vehicles, the law is silent on the legality of openly carrying a firearm in other situations, making it what some would argue legal by default. It is highly suggested that before you “open carry” you contact your local law enforcement agency to get their interpretation of the law, (get the name and rank of the officer you speak to.)

There is however a law that requires a License To Carry Firearms to carry either way in "cities of the first class", which as defined by law is only the city of Philadelphia.

“Open Carry” is a term referring to the right of law abiding citizens 18 or older to display their firearm in public spaces without the need for a permit. The legal basis for this right can be found in the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. This federal right has been further defined by the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act of 1995 which places restrictions on firearms owned by citizens of the Commonwealth. Open carry is Prohibited in the following places:  Within the city of Philadelphia, any school, any courthouse, any federal facility, and state park, any adult or juvenile detention facility, in a motor vehicle, in a private business (if notified verbally or by signage)

The Pennsylvania Sheriff’s association when asked about their position on gun control efforts coming out of Washington took a somewhat neutral stance, much different than other Sheriff’s associations from across the country, their official statement is: “The Sheriffs are Constitutional Officers sworn to uphold the Constitutions of the United States and the Commonwealth.  No directive has been given, nor is any directive expected to require the removal or surrender of any firearms in this state.”

A police chief in Gilberton, Pennsylvania, a small burough in Schuylkill County with a population of only 867 people, is proposing a ’2nd Amendment Preservation’ Ordinance that he plans to present to the city council during its January 24, 2013 meeting. The ordinance, if adopted, would formally require the city to “enact any and all measures as may be necessary” to prevent the violation of the 2nd Amendment by any federal, state or local entity. The support of the second amendment is growing and the push back to the feds is something the liberal congress we don’t thing ever saw coming!
