    Default Re: Carbon Co concealed Carry Permit Question

    What you just said is the first time I ever heard that. It sucks to be you, I guess. That is NOT what the OP is implying here. He stated that he let his previous license run out. He KNOWS how it works. At some point he HAD references. Why does he want to go around the system now? I have had a license for a long time. The ease of getting a license now is nothing compared to what it once was. It is harder to get a drivers license. If you cannot abide by a few simple rules to obtain a carry permit, that is too bad.


    **Drop down a couple threads. There is a guy actually trolling for references on this forum. Maybe you want to help?

    You made a false argument. What you said, about the OP only knowing criminals and drunks in his county, is not what he said. He said he has people he'd like to use as references who should be perfectly acceptable under state law. It's not his fault the sheriff is imposing an illegal additional requirement upon the application process.

    Sucks to be me? No, I got my license with no problem. But over the years there have been plenty of posts here from people who don't want to let anyone else know that they might be carrying a concealed firearm. Because it's no one else's business. Sometimes they know people they wouldn't mind using as a reference but they don't live in the same county. Under state law, which says the Pennsylvania State Police write the application form and establish provisions to ensure compliance, references from another county should be fine.

    The problem here is a sheriff acting as a law unto himself, not the OP.

    The OP stated he let his license run out. Where are the original references now? Dead? The request is not an unreasonable one, and it IS other peoples business if you are a habitual drunk or the neighborhood troublemaker. Maybe not the OP, but there are people out there with a license that should never have gotten one.

    The answer to your question is in the original post.

    The two references I had when I first obtained my license in carbon county have moved out of the county.

    Well I'm going this week with 2 references from the next county. That's all I have right now. I hope they are fine with it. I just don't want anyone know I carry. Hope it works.

    If you give them the application and the fee you've applied. They either have to approve or deny your application, and there's no basis in law to deny it for "non-county residents". If they say they won't "accept" it they're effectively denying you illegally, whether or not they want to admit it. They have no discretion in whether or not they accept an application, they may only issue or deny a license one you've properly applied (by submitting a valid application and fee).
