The Pennsylvania Crimes code deals with Violent Crimes and specifically the charge of Persons not to possess or use firearms. The second amendment of the United States constitution guarantees the right of all citizens to keep and bear arms. However, there is a population of individuals who have had that right revoked due to certain circumstances. Murder Those aforementioned are individuals who have committed a serious violation of law, namely an offense that rises to the degree of a felony. In addition to felons, there are a number of other populations that are prohibited from having anything to do with firearms. These include fugitives, those who are adjudicated as incompetent, anyone involuntary committed to a mental institution along with those dishonorably discharged from service. Every state has some version of a statute from prohibiting certain populations from the possession, use, manufacture, control, sell or transfer of firearms. In the Commonwealth of Pa that statute is section 6105 of the Pa criminal code.
