Do you have the character to carry?
Gun-seekers must, on record, confirm or deny a bad, perhaps boozy, reputation.

Sheriffs can deny concealed-weapon permits in Pennsylvania based on an applicant’s “character and reputation,” but assessing such broad qualities is a challenge, said county interim Sheriff John Robshaw.

Like most if not all of its counterparts in the state, the Luzerne County Sheriff’s Office seeks applicants’ response to the following question on permit applications:

• “Is your character and reputation such that you would be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety?”

Hmm... who are the leos, court personnel, and judges who were all complicit in the unlawful and wrongful imprisonment of hundreds of minors to make any judgments as to the character of anyone?
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

The problem with that clause is that it's completely subjective. Laws should be based on facts, and the closest thing to "subjective" that's acceptable in law is "reasonable suspicion based on clearly articulatable facts."

That being said, if all they do is ASK the question, and deny those who admit to be dangerous to society, I see no problem with it. Unfortunately, the law isn't written that way.
