Recent Pennsylvania Case Dealing with License to Carry Concealed Weapons

In a recent Pennsylvania Superior Court case, the Court ruled that a person could be convicted of firearms not to be carried without a license 18 Pa.C.S.A. 6106 if that person does not possess a Pennsylvania concealed carry permit.  If a person is found guilty of 18 Pa.C.S.A. 6106, he commits a felony of the third degree and can face imprisonment up to 7 years.

In the Superior Court case, the defendant attempted to bring his firearm into a Distrcit Court office.  On appeal, the defendant argued that he previously had a Pennsylvania carry permit, and despite the fact that his PA permit was revoked, he currently had a concealed carry permit from New Hampshire.  Accordingly, the defendant argued, because he was licensed to carry a concealed weapon in one state he should not be found guilty in this state.

The Superior Court held that a Pennsylvania resident must have a Pennsylvania license to carry a concealed firearm.
