|I will be reintroducing SB 1071 of 2013. This legislation will amend Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, relative to firearms and other dangerous articles. The purpose of this amendment is to provide for an individual who is 21 years of age or older to make application for a license to carry a firearm concealed on or about his person, or in a vehicle within this Commonwealth, with the sheriff of the county in which he resides, or of the sheriff of a county contiguous to the county in which he resides.
If the applicant is a resident of a city of a first class, he shall make application with the chief of police of that city, the sheriff of the county in which he resides, or the sheriff of a county contiguous to the county in which he resides.
Currently, applicants must make application to the sheriff of the county in which they reside, or in the case of a city of a first class, to the chief of police of that city.
This legislation was cosponsored by Senators: Brewster, Scarnati, White, Wozniak, and Yudichak.
