    Default PA Sheriff Overwhelmed By Demand For Concealed Carry Licenses

    With a waiting list of more than 6,000 residents who want to apply for their concealed carry licenses, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania Sheriff William Mullen is getting a little creative in the hopes of easing the growing backlog. This coming weekend the sheriff will be holding a “drive thru” concealed carry event where residents can drop off their applications and get fingerprinted without ever leaving their car, and Mullen says he’s hoping the event will be successful enough for them to hold more.

    Long lines of applicants are a daily recurrence at the sheriff’s office at the moment. With office hours limited to appointments only, and demand for the concealed carry licenses at an all-time high, Allegheny County residents who call to set up an appointment today are being told they can come in sometime in November.

    From the article

    In a pinch, most Pennsylvanians who may be stuck in the concealed carry queue with their local sheriff can still lawfully carry their handgun out in the open. It might not be the preferred means of carrying for many, and it’s going to become nearly impossible to do once autumn comes and the temperature starts dropping, but for a moment it’s a workaround to the long lines and months-long wait for concealed carry applicants.

    I guess they don’t know about the state of emergency clause, not to mention that not being able to carry in a car thing.

    Can someone tweet them https://twitter.com/bearingarmscom to correct the article about the fingerprinting and lack of detailed open carry considerations? I don't have the twitter.

    Combed through the sheriff's website and found nothing about fingerprints. As jthrelf points out this appears to be an error by the author of the article

    This is the second bearingarms article that I have seen recently with inaccurate information. The other one was an article about the covid state of emergency preventing open carry without a license and they overlooked the opioid state of emergency continuing for the past 2 1/2 years.

    I posted a comment on their FB page under the link for the article. No idea though if they pay any attention

    Pointless article with no real information, just misinformation.
