    Default advice: firearm attorney

    I'm looking for an attorney in the Philadelphia area who can help with residency and permitting. In other words, a GOOD attorney who specializes in firearms issues in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks,

    Newtonian

    Just curious, but why would you need an attorney to establish residency? Just buy/rent a place and move, then get a PA drivers license. Once you have that, go apply for a LTCF.

    As stated above Phil Kline and Josh Prince are two good options.

    I'm curious too. Are you an attorney? Do you offer free consultations? Have you advised NJ residents on these issues before, including taxes and driver licenses? Do you guarantee any of the greedy SOB jurisdictions will never contest or go after me? Can you guarantee it's all legal? If so, what is your rate?

    I'll be happy to explain everything to you!

    He actually gave me the name of someone outside of Philly, Jon Mirowitz, with whom I spoke. We're setting something up for later in the month. Thanks to everybody.

    I can guaranty you it is perfectly legal to move from one state and establish residency in another. It is protected via the Privileges and Immunities Clause. Once a resident of whatever state, and if you aren't prohibited from having(convicted DUI for example), a drivers license is also not an issue - otherwise a state issued photo ID is available.

    You generally pay income taxes in the state in which the income is earned(in case you keep a job in NJ). Local income tax policies can vary a little.

    Car registration and insurance is for the most part cheap here, so registering your vehicles here would probably save you $.

    Any firearm that is legal in NJ would be legal in PA due to PA's lessor laws on the matter. No "gun registration" in PA. No license/permit is require to own, purchase, or keep a firearm. ...only to carry concealed, or in a vehicle, or on public domain in Philly, or statewide during a state of emergency(which we are under). Both PA and NJ have provisions for lawful transporting of firearms between residences when moving.

    What else do you need to know?

    I'll wager he's buying a house in Pa to establish residency for the purpose of gun buying without actually leaving new jersey.

    Im really good at between line reading.
