We have another gun control bill coming up in Pennsylvania’s House Judiciary tomorrow. See here for contact information from the Committee. This is the bill that aims to close what the media has dubbed the “Florida Loophole.” If this passes, Pennsylvania will no longer recognizeÂ reciprocalÂ licenses if you’re a resident of Pennsylvania.
It’s not uncommon for residents of Philadelphia to seek out the Florida license, because Philadelphia has an odious habit of revoking even for minor issues, like unpaid parking tickets, and has also been known to revoke if you’re the victim of a theft. Needless to say, given the problems we’ve had in Pennsylvania with Sheriffs and the City of Philadelphia abusing their discretion under the UFA when it comes to revoking permits, we can’t allow this to pass.
