    I believe he means they can't change the law as it is written without it it being passed by the state legislature. This is correct. The governor can't change a law on a whim. What he can do is stop prosecuting people technically in violation of the law. And I have not heard of any sheriff or county DA that says otherwise. I am sure there are still laws somewhere that say you can't check into a hotel with your girlfriend, take her across state lines or even commit sodomy with her. But no one worries about it. So have a great weekend.

No DA is going to prosecute you and make you a felon within the extension period. And if they did I can't see even the most liberal judge finding you guilty of a felony with the statewide extensionvpublished everywhere. Trust me on that.
    A Philly DA, and a judge, convicted a off duty armed security guard (who the philly cops did not charge) for not having a LTCF when he shot an armed mugger with the muggers gun.

    Even though the law clearly states that having act 235 is an exemption from needing a LTCF.

    Gotta wonder what the extension will do out of state. States that normally reciprocate with pa may not honor the extension.

    Get jacked up in another state where our LTCF is honored, and have a thug w badge see an expired date. Think THAT would make a fun time? And a previous poster nailed it: any extension is illegal.

    Those are all good points that I had not considered. Hopefully I can get the LTCF renewed properly soon.

    Not sure what other Counties are doing, but I just got mine renewed yesterday in Lancaster. Had to mail in the application with a money order and set up an appointment. Was actually easier than normal since no standing in line. Just showed up and had my picture taken and was out of there in 10 minutes. Didn't want to take a chance since no telling how reciprocity States would handle an expired permit and I travel to VA now and then.

    Here in Montco you can email the documents and pick up the LTCF when the offices open back up

    We are getting notifications from other states regarding the expiration of their DL*s, Registrations & LTCF*s.

    These are extenuating circumstances, not laziness.
