I was just advised that the Wolf Administration and Pennsylvania State Police will be granting extensions to license to carry firearm permits. Permits that have expired on March 19, 2020 or later have been extended to May 30, 2020 and they will re-examine the possibility of an additional extension as that date gets closer.
A news release by the Governor is expected shortly.

With our 2nd Amendment rights being attacked at both the Federal and State level, and the ATF (Burea of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) trying to close down FFLs (Federal Firearms Licensees) for minor infractions while making FFLs the scapegoat when the ATF's records are inaccurate, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am one of only a handful of attorneys across the US that practices in the niche area of law known as firearms law. I decided to concentrate my legal practice on firearms law not only because I am a shooter and firearms enthusiast, but also to ensure that our inalienable Right to Keep and Bear Arms is never encroached upon.
I handle cases at the Federal and State level for both FFLs and individuals. At the federal and state levels for individuals, I actively defend the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and Section 21 of the PA Constitution, as well as, help individuals with:
- License to Carry Firearms Denials;
- Challenges to Erroneous PICS Denials;
- Relief from Firearms Disabilities;
- Estate Planning Advice;
- Gun/NFA Trusts; and
- 42 USC 1983 Actions for Deprivation of Civil Rights
At both the state and federal levels, I represent FFLs and SOTs throughout Pennsylvania and the US regarding:
- ATF Compliance Inspections;
- Warning Letters and Hearings;
- FFL Revocations;
- Corporate Structure Advice
- Indoor/Outdoor Range Implementation; and
- Forfeiture Proceedings
In following my love for firearms and firearms law, I have taught several Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars on Firearms in Estates and Trusts and Firearms Law 101 for several Bar Associations, including Berks, Cumberland, and Dauphin Counties. I also planned and taught several Firearms in Estates CLE classes for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute (PBI).
While at Widener Law School, I was a member of the Widener Law Journal. I wrote an article on the Inaccuracy of the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR). I also had an article published on Fee Disputes in Workers Compensation cases in the Widener Law Journal, Volume 18, No. 2.
You can often find me posting on several internet forums, including Subguns, Uzitalk, AR15, and PAFOA. I also hold PA Firearms Law classes for local ranges to inform the public on the firearm laws of the Commonwealth.
Following in my father's footsteps, I am also a Board member for the Pottstown Police Athletic League (PAL).

Can you send me a link to get a CCP in PA to be proccessed online?
It’s a bit more complex than that. The governor and state police have some oversight of Licenses to Carry Firearms, but LCTFs are applied fire, processes, and issued by individual county sheriffs. If you are a PA resident, you need to look up your county sheriff’s webpage, which should include instructions on how they are currently accepting and processing LTCF applications and will likely also include a link to a fillable PDF of the form.
If you have residency in another state but want a PA LTCF, please be aware that not all counties will issue an out-of-state license. It’s usually easiest to apply in county that you routinely visit, work in, or own property in, or one adjacent to it.
Hey Joshua, I want a carry permit too. Is anything going On with the lawsuit ? Not trying to be pushy, just haven’t heard anything lately. Regards Daniel

While the Governor is in a cooperative mood maybe he would also like to sign a constitutional carry bill then this wouldn’t be a problem.
Good luck with getting a permit in Washington county the sheriff shut it down !!
In Montgomery County, the sheriff’s page has conflicting information about permits. At the top it states that applications must be investigated in 45 days. Farther down it says that the sheriff will be holding applications for 30 days. Is this a loophole in language of the law?
How can I renew my carry permit for Monroe county online?
