I can remember the paper cards from our county about 15 years ago. The last 2 permits I had were plastic. What I didn't know is the law that says they can't charge more than $25 for a permit. I am pretty sure I paid more than $25 about 3 years ago.Pennsylvania's Uniform Firearms Act gives county sheriffs the responsibility for handling concealed firearms licenses in most areas, including the Lehigh Valley. That law also sets the fee for such permits at $25 and says anyone "who sells or attempts to sell a license to carry a firearm for a fee in excess of the amounts fixed under this subsection" could be charged with a summary offense.
