Philadelphia Gun Permit Unit Closed Due to COVID

Late last night on its Facebook page, the Philadelphia Police Department posted that it was closing the Gun Permit Unit through December 7, 2020; thereby, precluding law-abiding individuals from obtaining licenses to carry firearms and therefore, subjecting them to Pennsylvania’s draconian transportation (18 Pa.C.S. 6106) and state of emergency laws (18 Pa.C.S. 6107).

I expect that I will have further information later today and will update this article, so make sure to check back later. In the interim, yesterday, PA HB 1747 – which removes the unconstitutional state of emergency provisions as they relate to firearms – and HB 2440 – which I authored and makes all firearm and ammunition manufacturers, retailers, distributors, gun ranges, and sportsman clubs life-sustaining business that can never be shuttered – passed the Senate and will now go the Governor. Please contact the Governor and demand that he sign both HB 1747 and HB 2440 into law.

If your constitutional rights have been violated, contact Firearms Industry Consulting Group today to discuss YOUR rights and legal options.

  1. Hi
    Based on the Pa Health Secretary and the Govs recent travel restrictions, what is your advice for out of state travelers entering Pa, and are these restrictions constitutional and enforceable?

    Thank you
