Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has taken her first official action since taking office, closing a gun loophole that allowed Pennsylvanians to get concealed carry permits from Florida that were usable in PA - even if the person applying for the permit in FL had been barred from getting such a permit in PA and wasn't a Florida resident.
Kane announced the closing of the Florida loophole at a press event in Philadelphia last Friday, February 8, with Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Philadelphia Police Chief Charles Ramsey. In a press release from the AG's office, Kane is quoted saying, "Our state's gun traffic and permits should never be bypassed. Closing this loophole shows that it is possible to swiftly implement common sense gun safety measures that protect our streets," and Mayor Nutter praised her, saying, "This is a significant step toward making Philadelphia, and the entire Commonwealth, safer for all residents. Modification of the firearm reciprocity agreement with Florida will ensure that all citizens with Concealed Carry Permits in Pennsylvania have met the standards set forth by our great state. I congratulate Attorney General Kane for taking swift action on this important issue."
For people that reside in both Pennsylvania and Florida, a Florida concealed carry permit will still count in Pennsylvania, but the person must have proof of Florida residency on them whenever carrying a concealed firearm and the FL permit in PA. Pennsylvanians who don't meet that description have 120 days from the date of the announcement to get PA concealed carry permits, after that time their FL permits will not be usable in PA. (These details are from the previously linked press release.)
There's no reason why someone who only lives in Pennsylvania and can't get or had revoked a concealed carry permit in PA should be able to get one from another state and have it count here. Now, thanks to the first Democratic attorney general of PA in modern history, they won't.
