Sewickley Heights, PA Pardons
What happens after you submit a PICS Challenge in Sewickley Heights, 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.
If I have had a Sewickley Heights PICS Denial in the past, will I be denied again?
If you have had a PICS denial in the past, the chances are you will be denied again. There are some reasons why a person can be temporarily prohibited from possessing firearms, but these situations are more rare. Even if your PICS denial is based upon inaccurate information, the Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) will still contain that information without a successful challenge. That is why it is so important to handle a PICS denial or undetermined status with a sense of urgency and contact an experienced firearms attorney as soon as possible.
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.
