    Default Need clarification/ info on non-resident permit

    So i am a Arizona resident. Here for under a year to help out family going through health issues..

    In Arizona i carried under constitutional carry nothing needed..

    PA says they have shall issue permit for non residents but where i am staying in Monroe county it says they don't issue to non residents.
    What do they consider proof of residency? drivers license? i was trying to avoid changing my license since i am only here temporarily..

    Can i just get an ID or show proof of mail to my place?

    Any info or ideas would be appreciated!

    Thank you!

    By law, ALL sheriffs are required to issue non-licenses. For a variety of reasons, some *say* they will not. Your options are to either sue the Sheriff that won't issue to you (likely a few thousand bucks) or try to find a sheriff that will actually follow the law.

    Also, to qualify for a PA non-resident permit, you must hold one from your home state, if one is available. Despite Constitutional carry, I assume AZ still issues for one reason or another? If that's the case, you'll need to have one to qualify here - even if it's not needed when you're at home.

    That will definitely simplify things. For the record, as a resident, you must apply with the sheriff of the county in which you reside, even if another county seat may be geographically closer and more convenient.
