How much for your concealed weapons permit?

I was recently thinking of getting a concealed weapons permit here in Luzerne County, and I was wondering what other counties charge. My holdup right now is that one of the councilmen wants to hike the CWP fee up from $20/five yrs to $150/five years. In one sense I feel the amount is worth the protection, but on the other hand it seems a little bit excessive, so I was just wondering what others pay. The reason they gave was budget problems and where they can raise revenue. Thanks

He is going to be surprised, the state sets the price, not city council.

Ok, thanks, i feel better. That was the last line of the article, it said that it may not be allowed by the state.

I know some counties have a varriation in prices of a few dollars. I highly doubt they will get away with that kind of increase. Contact your legislators now, before they make a move.

My neighbor just renewed his for Beaver county and he said the price has dropped. I'll find out in Feburary when I renew mine.

Re: How much for your concealed weapons permit?

I don't understand where a "councilman" would have anything to do with it.

The permit is issued by the County Sheriff and the fees are set by the State.

Did the OP perhaps mean the "A County Commissioner"? That would make more sense, but even they have no control over it.

Here in Berks Co I'm pretty sure it was $25 the last time I renewed.
