    Default Philly Gun Permit Unit closes yet again (stated reason is COVID)

    https://www.ppd-ltc.com/


    "Philadelphia, PA 19134
    IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!!!
    Due to several positive COVID-19 cases and the need to quarantine as advised by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, the Gun Permits Unit will be closed to the public beginning on Wednesday, November 19, 2020, and will re-open on Monday, December 7, 2020.

    *This closure includes all walk-up service and previously scheduled appointments.

    In the continued interest of the health and safety of PPD employees and the communities we serve, all PPD facilities and locations directly impacted by employees with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, will be sanitized and deep cleaned.

    COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Philadelphia and as essential workers on the pandemicís frontline, the Philadelphia Police Department will continue to take all necessary health and safety precautions while serving the public.

    To reschedule your appointment, contact (215) 685- 3661 or (215) 685-3662"

    No, they don't seem to pick up at those numbers and there is no way to leave a message.

    No idea if they will actually re-open in December

    Yes, in past years they also tend to close from December 20 or so until earlyish January.

    No, I have no idea what will happen to people approved for new or renewal LTCFs that will not be able to pick up same under the Philly GPU's more or less arbitrary 45 day after grant window (as the GPU will not mail out new cards and purposely does not take a LTCF card photo until the time of pickup and presumably discards the passport size photos they require at time of application).

    Utterly ridiculous. I was called about a month ago to reschedule my renewal appointment from Nov 2021 (!!!) to this upcoming Wed when they opened up night hours. No further communication, had I not checked here I would have shown up Wed at 6 like a chump to a closed facility. Now I'm assuming I will have to call and and call and call to get through to reschedule again for over a year from now. what an absolute joke, the state needs to allow this to be done in a different way since the city is clearly not competent enough to handle it!

    FPC is suing PPD, the city and the State Police over it. They are still looking for plaintiffs to join the suit. Shoot them an email. hotline@fpchq.org.
