Can I get a License to Carry Firearms (Concealed Carry License) in Pennsylvania

Even if you can legally own a gun, you still might not be able to get a License to Carry Firearms (concealed carry license) in Pennsylvania. For example, even very minor drug offenses can render you ineligible for a License to Carry Firearms in Pennsylvania. Under 18 Pa.C.S. § 6109, if you have been convicted of any offense under the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act you are ineligible for a License to Carry Firearms. That means that if you have been convicted of even a minor drug crime in Pennsylvania, such as possession of a small amount of marijuana or possession of drug paraphernalia, you can’t get a License to Carry Firearms even if your conviction is very old. This is true even if you pleaded guilty and only paid a small fine. If there is a chance you may have been convicted of misdemeanor drug crime in Pennsylvania, you should not apply for a License to Carry Firearms without a firearms eligibility investigation.

What if my Emigsville, PA PICS denial investigation shows that I can’t legally own a gun?

What if my Emigsville, PA PICS denial investigation shows that I can’t legally own a gun?

An investigation by an experienced firearms attorney is always valuable after a PICS denial, even if it turns out you are prohibited from possessing firearms and can’t legally own a gun. There are two primary areas of concern after a PICS denial when a person is in fact prohibited: 1) criminal prosecution, and 2) restoration of rights. If you fail the background check (PICS denial) when you are trying to buy a gun in Pennsylvania, you could unfortunately face criminal prosecution for a felony. Even if you thought you answered the questions correctly, many people are still prosecuted for their mistake. It is important to never make any statements to the police about your case without a lawyer present who is very familiar with firearms laws. There also may be an avenue to restore your rights if you are prohibited. At The Gun Law Firm, we have helped people restore their firearms rights since our inception.

What happens after you submit a PICS Challenge in Emigsville, PA?

What happens after you submit a PICS Challenge in Emigsville, PA?

After Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) receives a PICS Challenge, they have five days to provide a response. This response is very important because it provides valuable information, including “Possible Reasons for Denial/Undetermined.” It is very important to keep this document because you only have 30 days to provide supplemental information. If your firearms attorney has already conducted an appropriate investigation, it will be much easier to provide PSP with the information necessary to issue a reversal letter. In the event that the reasons for denial/undetermined are completely unexpected (e.g. mistaken identity) the remaining time must be utilized to quickly gather the documentation necessary to overturn the denial.
