<a href="http://mainlinemedianews.com/articles/2010/05/22/main_line_times/news/doc4bf825ed792a9195284030.txt" target="_blank">State Rep. Bryan R. Lentz, D-Delaware, will introduce legislation that would prohibit Pennsylvania residents from carrying a firearm if they have been denied a "license to carry" by the Commonwealth.

Current law allows a person to carry a firearm if he or she possesses a valid license or permit issued by another state -- regardless of whether a reciprocity agreement exists between the Commonwealth and the state.

"This exception provides an opportunity for Pennsylvania residents to legally carry a firearm in the Commonwealth even when they have been denied or revoked a 'license to carry' by Pennsylvania authorities," Lentz said. "Pennsylvania residents who have been denied or revoked a license to carry, for whatever reason, have used this loophole to purchase a license and firearms in another state.

Totally disagree with this.

Not only does it strip Open Carry, it also allows sheriffs to play more of an active role in gun control.

This definately needs to be stopped and it isnt surprising that they are all followers of "The Great One".

That instance that he quoted as the reason why he introduced this bill is a joke as well.

More Philthyness.

People in Philly get denied LTCF's for having a gun stolen from them, or for a few unpaid traffic tickets ( non DUI related). "Charactor Clause" abuse at it again...

<span style="color: #000099">HB 2536 is scheduled for a vote in House Judiciary committee on June 8, 2010

here is text of bill - the underline part is the change to the exemption
http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/...type=B&bn=2536

IF you got one of these non residents out of state LTCF permits or would ever just like to have the freedom option in the future of ever getting one for more states reciprocity agreements they offer over a just a normal PA LTCF permits


You better SPEAK up and take direct action NOW by contacting all the Reps on this Judiciary committee Politely expressing your views in opposition before they attempt to close this freedom option with legislation change they vote on June 8.


This legal change will not allow resident of PA just to have an out of state LTCF permits that are valid in PA without also having to incur the added cost a PA issued LTCF as well.

Now under current law - one non resident out of state permit does both tasks if this passes you need to have two permits.


IF you don’t like this proposed change in the law you better take direction action NOW, just complaining about this after this passed when you could of stopped this will fall on deaf ears. Its much easier to defeat HB 2536 here, rather than in a full house vote.

Many people in my part of western PA have another valid reason for having one of thse - living in PA and working in an adjoining state (like OHIO) that doesn't honor PA permit that one of these out of state LTCF permit are honored by both states.

Pennsylvania: Attack on Concealed Carry Scheduled to be Heard on Wednesday!

Monday, June 21, 2010


Please Contact the Members of the House Judiciary Committee Immediately!

On Wednesday, June 23, the House Judiciary Committee will consider legislation restricting the recognition of reciprocity agreements for “concealed carry” license holders in Pennsylvania.

House Bill 2536, introduced by State Representative Brian Lentz (D-161), would prohibit a resident of the Commonwealth from carrying a concealed firearm with a license issued from another state.

This legislation is the first step in an outright attack on your concealed carry rights in Pennsylvania. HB2536 poses a very real and serious threat to our rights so it is imperative that you make your voice heard.

Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee IMMEDIATELY and respectfully urge them to oppose HB2536. Contact information for the committee can be found by clicking here.
