Erie LTCF Info
#1
Quote:By State Law, the Sheriff of Erie County has the responsibility to process all applications for a license to carry firearms and to issue licenses to all those applicants who qualify, based on a background investigation done by the Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff also licenses all firearms dealers in Erie County. All licenses are processed through Pennsylvania Instant Check System. Once an application for license to carry is filed, the Sheriff has 45 days in which to do the investigation and notify the applicant. The permit is valid for 5 years. The Sheriff has the ability to revoke the license at anytime for misuse.

The website also says
Quote: All applicants are required to have a valid Pennsylvania Drivers License.

There's no legal basis for that requirement.

I think it is safe to say you need to identify yourself and residency somehow for submital to PICS.
Merski will not deny anyone a LTCF without a damn good reason which would be soley on the applicants prior history.

Identifying who you are and where you live are reasonable requirements consistent with the UFA. The sheriff requiring a PA driver's license is not.

Non-PA residents, and PA residents who don't drive, are not disqualified by law from applying for and obtaining a LTCF.

No kidding.Ninja
Send them an email because I didn't put together the site.
...and as long as your at it you should scrutinize the other 66 counties to make sure they are compliant.

We already made sure that every county is charging the correct fee, I wonder how the PA Sheriff's Association will react to a protracted public relations nightmare on the non-compliance with other aspects of the law.

Oh he'll, I don't have to wonder, I know it scares the hell out of them. What's the primary newspaper in the area? I'll make a few phone calls tomorrow if you can get me that tonight.

I spoke with the Sheriff's Dep't, they were aware of the discrepancy and it'll be corrected whenever the site is updated.
