    It is evident this pandemic will affect us for a much longer period of time than was originally believed. I do not want to infringe upon anyone’s Constitutional or Second Amendment Rights, or ability to defend themselves or family. That being said, my office will accept applicants by appointment only.

    This process will take effect on Monday, March 23, 2020. Please make your appointment by calling 814.693.3100. We will do our absolute best to schedule you as soon as possible. Again, we are taking the health and safety of our community into consideration.

    I apologize for any confusion this may have caused but believe this compromise will be beneficial.
    As always, God bless and thank you for your support during this crisis.

    Sincerely,
    James E. Ott
    Sheriff
    One side of me applauds that this sheriff is trying to make things work. The other side twitches at seeing a PA county duplicate the "set up an appointment to submit your application" paradigm that is so commonly seen here in PRNY.

    Why, you ask? Because last time I checked, Onondaga County was setting up appointments for 18 months in the future. That's what "absolute best to schedule you as soon as possible" eventually devolves to.

    I'm not saying Sheriff Ott is trying to move in that direction. But that is certainly how counties in PRNY started...

    Things devolved long ago when we let governments ignore the 2nd amendment.
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    If I had not been persistent I would not have gotten renewed today.

    I was met walking up to the door by a deputy who questioned why I was there.

    To see the sheriff.

    You here for a license.

    Yes

    Blocking door now. New or renewal?

    Renewal.

    Oh they aren't doing renewals. Still blocking door. You get an automatic extension of 90 days.

    Is that the exemption or was a law passed? Im aware of an exemption if you forgot to renew that you can plead to a judge but if you carry on an expired license its a prohibiting offense.

    Well you can ask the guys inside but they are going to tell you the same thing.

    He goes in first as he was in the revolving door and i follow in. I'm hearing those guys tell him they just got word Weaknecht is doing renewals.

    I go through the metal detector and lose my leatherman to a receipt and stll set off the damn thing. After a wanding I'm sent on my way to the sheriff office.

    I found the office and gave them my paperwork, drivers license and 20 dollars. They took everything and said get a seat.

    Minuets pass and a deputy said we aren't doing renewals only new license and we have a repeat of the door cop conversation.

    I added in that they told me downstairs that they got word this morning that renewals are to be completed.

    I asked if I could talk to Erick and was told with that feeling of a lie, no hes not here.

    Can you call him?

    No, but then hes thinking about it as I'm taking my paperwork divers license and 20 back.

    I hear that guy saying oh why didn't he tell me but he told them. This is over the phone.

    I set my stuff down and waited for the end of the conversation, but then he goes into another room.

    Only when he comes back does he say ok we're taking renewals.

    I pass my stuff back and wait back in the chair for the approval and my picture.

    Two deputies have a conversation of the laminating machine.

    I get to my truck and look at my new license. Its part way hanging out of the laminate on a crooked angle.

    Get your asses in ther quick if you need to. Things be changing by the second.

    This makes me glad the wife and I just made it under the wire when we renewed two weeks ago! I have had a LTCF continuously in PA since the 1970s and this year due to not paying attention I now have a three week gap in my record. Won't let that happen again...

    Lancaster County Sheriff has the notice on their website that they are closed until 4/15 and will not be accepting new or renewal applications. I called their office and got a voicemail saying the same. Has anyone been able to actually speak to anyone in Lancaster to get an idea as to their "plan?" Of course I am one of the people who's permit expires in a few weeks.
