    Default PA D\L linked to CCW permit?

    USCCA claims the following about PA laws. I did not think this was the case but that was awhile back when I inquired. Can someone confirm this?

    DRIVER'S LICENSE LINKED TO Carry License?

    Is my Pennsylvania driver*s license linked to my Pennsylvania carry license?
    Yes. Your Pennsylvania driver*s license is linked to your Pennsylvania license to carry firearms. Therefore, a law enforcement officer will be notified immediately that you are a concealed carry license holder if they run your driver*s license.

    There's been multiple threads on this forum describing LEO encounters that would lead to confirm that, but I don't know for sure. Maybe Carson or UncleJumbo could help confirm.

    My understanding is that LTCF info is not actually contained within the DL info database, but the LTCF database is readily accessible to both dispatchers and LEO, and it's basically standard practice to look for that info, just as they would automatically check for warrants, etc.

    Interesting! Kind of puts the ccw holder who has been stopped by a LEO in a dilemma since there is no law that says he\she must inform the LEO he\she is currently carrying which may be misconstrued by the LEO that I'm hiding something. Thanks for the clarification.

    I know folks who have had a LTCF for some period of time before they ever even owned a gun.

    I dunno, I would think that knowing the subject was a law abiding citizen might put the copper's mind at ease a little.

    monroe county control center frequently will notify officers that the person they ID is an "ltc" holder.
    i've not heard of any incidents relating to the information. sounds more like it is just so there aren't any surprises going in.
    There is no way to make it out alive...

    Probably not a widespread issue, but you'd be surprised how may "straw purchaser's" hand over their LTCF, along with their DL at the gun shop when buying. I guess they think it will put suspicious store staff at ease and believe they're on the level. It doesn't.

    And no, they're not all from Philly. Some, but not all.
